Cinnamon Sugar Coffee Cake Muffins

I had bagels planned for our Black Friday shopping day breakfast...and then realized my mom can't eat them. So I went with this recipe. Now the original recipe says it makes 10 muffins so I doubled the recipe...I got 2 dozen muffins! I knew 10 wouldn't last us long!

*This recipe is for a 10-12 muffins
Cinnamon Sugar Coffee Cake-adapted from Lick the Bowl Good
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp applesauce
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2-2/3 cup sugar
4 oz vanilla yogurt(or sour cream)
1/8 cup milk
1 1/4 cups flour(ap or whole wheat)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Cinnamon Brown sugar filling
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
Cream butter and sugar together. Add in one egg at a time until well blended. Add in yogurt, vanilla, and applesauce. Mix well. Sift together dry ingredients and add in slowly, mix until just combined.

Scoop about 1 tbsp into prepared muffin tins(greased or liners). Sprinkle 1 tsp of cinnamon topping on top followed about another tbsp of batter.

Bake for 18-20 mins or until a toothpick comes out clean.

**These were really tasty! I did skip the cinnamon sugar topping and cut back on the sugar in the batter. I could probably cut it back even more with the cinnamon swirl in it. The outside edges got nice and brown and crispy which added a nice texture to the moist and fluffy center! YUM!
