Cinnamon Streusel Topping:

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar

  • To make the cinnamon streusel topping: in a medium bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Cut the butter into the mixture into it resembles coarse sand. Sprinkle the streusel evenly over the tops of each muffin.
