I made these after my stale saltine incident with the Cookie Butter saltine bars. Kathleen's college friends loved these and ate them up for a late night snack.
Mini Crumb Cake Bites
Yield: 33-36 muffins Beth used a cookie scoop and got 24 mini muffins
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus a pinch
1 1/2 cups + 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray mini muffin pans with nonstick cooking spray
Stir granulated sugar, oil, egg, and vanilla in a large bowl until combined. Stir in milk.
In a medium bowl, whisk baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1 1/2 cups flour. Slowly stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Fill muffin pans with 1 tablespoon of batter per cavity (33-36 muffins).
Melt the butter in the same bowl you used for the dry ingredients. Stir in cinnamon, 2 tablespoons flour, a pinch of salt, and brown sugar. Mixture will be crumbly. Place about 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon of crumb topping on each muffin.
Bake for 9-10 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean from the center of the muffin. Cool before removing from pan and serving. It’s easiest to use a knife to help remove these from the pan.
