  • Electric mixer
  • Mixing bowls
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Standard muffin tin and liners
  • spatula



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup unsalted butter melted
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • cup sour cream
  • cup buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

Cinnamon swirl

  • cup brown sugar
  • ½ tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • teaspoon salt

Cinnamon streusel topping

  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoon unsalted butter melted

Cinnamon glaze

  • cup confectioner's sugar
  • teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoon milk
  • pinch of salt



  • Preheat oven to 425°. Grease and line one standard muffin tin. Set aside. Melt butter in microwave.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the melted butter and granulated sugar until combined. Add in one egg at a time and beat well after each addition. Add in the vanilla, buttermilk, and sour cream until incorporated.
  • Add in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Set aside.

Cinnamon swirl

  • Combine all ingredients in to a bowl and set aside.

Cinnamon Streusel topping

  • Combine all the ingredients into a small bowl. Add in the melted butter and mix until clumps are formed. Set aside.

Assembly of muffins

  • Using a large spoon, add batter to prepared muffin tins until they are ½ way full. Sprinkle a large spoonful of the cinnamon swirl topping onto each of the muffins. Next, add additional batter to the tops of the cinnamon swirl so they are about ¾ of the way full.
  • Add the streusel topping onto each muffin, and gently press so that the mixture stays on. Bake for 5 minutes at 425°. Lower oven temperature to 375° and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
  • Mix ingredients for the cinnamon glaze and drizzle on top of cooled muffins. Serve and enjoy!
