Yogurt Coffee Cake Muffins.

If you are following me (and you should) you already know that I love to make almost every recipe from scratch. I also love to try other’s recipes and tweak it to meet my taste and liking.

One day and while browsing the internet, I came across a recipe that everyone raved about, the images made me drool and I was determined to make that recipe following it to the T. It was not for a Yogurt Coffee Cake Muffins by the way.

I ended up making a lot of changes, it no longer looked like the recipe that originally inspired me.

Now here is the shocker, the recipe that inspired me was not a muffin recipe to start with let alone for Yogurt Coffee Cake Muffins. The batter I ended up with (although delicious) but can never be for what I was heading for. Yes, I destroyed the recipe!

This step is only used to make one particular baked dessert, if you are a foodie, or bake regularly, you will guess what the recipe I’m sharing today was supposed to be. Please mention your guess in the comment box below. I’m sure you’ll have a good laugh!

  • Cover the batter and place in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes.

  • **Muffin Batter.
  • ½ cup yogurt
  • 4 tablespoon unsalted butter melted
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • **Streusel Topping.
  • 3 tablespoon unsalted butter cut into cubes
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt


  • **Making the streusel topping.
  • In a bowl, mix all the ingredients using a fork or the tip of your fingers. Place in the fridge to prevent butter from melting.
  • **Making the muffin batter.
  • Sift or whisk flour with baking powder and salt, keep aside.
  • In a bowl, add all remaining ingredients and beat until well combined.
  • Add the flour to the wet ingredients and mix on low speed just until combined (Do not over mix or the muffins will get tough).
  • Cover the batter and place in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350F/180C.
  • Place muffin liners in your muffin tin. Fill ¾ of the liner with batter.

  • Let cool on cooling rack and enjoy.
