If you’re looking for a way to dress up your average muffin, try adding a streusel topping. It’s not hard, it’s just a matter of making a chunky buttery topping similar to the ones that top fruit crisps.
After you have scooped the muffin batter into the pan, sprinkle a couple of tablespoons on the top of the un-baked muffins and you’re laughing your way to a dressed up delicious muffin.
Streusel Topping (adapted from too many sources to name)
Makes about 1½ cups
½ cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
¼ cup brown sugar
¾ cup flour
*1 teaspoon cinnamon, if desired
In a small bowl, combine the ingredients with your hands until you get a nice crumbly topping. Place the streusel in the fridge until ready to use.
Sprinkle about two tablespoons of the topping over the top of the un-baked muffin and bake as the muffin recipe directs. Enjoy.
