Happy Coffee Day - My Favorite Gluten Free Coffee Cake Muffin Recipe

Today is National Coffee Day and once hubby caught wind of the celebration,
he mentioned that he wanted Coffee Cake and of course, coffee.
So guess what I'm sharing with you today?

My Favorite Gluten Free Coffee Cake Muffin Recipe

This recipe is so incredibly good; the crumbly sugar topping and the sweet, creamy delicious glaze are absolutely scrumptious! It's the perfect addition to a cup o' joe and since today was a super rainy day it was the perfect occasion to spend some time baking for my man.

These muffins taste like you spent all day making them when in reality it only takes a few minutes to whip it all together. Here's my favorite Gluten Free Coffee Cake Muffin Recipes:

Ingredients :
1 1/2 cups all-purpose gluten free flour {I used bisquik}
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon 
1/4 teaspoon baking soda 
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
3/4 cup almond or coconut milk 
1/3 cup canola oil
2 large eggs

Crumbly Topping Ingredients :
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup Granulated Sugar
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose gluten free flour

 Sweet, Creamy Ingredients :1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon almond or coconut milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F, be sure to line your muffin tins with liners; I used silicone baking cups from Galley Essentials to make these babies and they turned out wonderfully - I highly recommend these cups! Set the muffin tins aside.

To make the crumb topping, combine sugars, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk in melted butter. Add flour and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. 
In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together milk, canola oil and egg. 
Pour the wet mixture into the dry and stir with a rubber spatula.
Scoop the batter evenly into the muffin tray with a small gap for the crumbly topping. Use your hands to crumble the topping onto the muffin mix and lightly push it into the batter - stack these as high as you can, evenly on each muffin.

Place into oven and bake for around 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out completely clean.

While waiting for these to bake in the oven, I suggest mixing up the glaze. It's super simple combine confectioners’ sugar and milk. Whisk until smooth.

When the muffins are done, cool for 10 minutes and drizzle the glaze on each muffin.

Serve with a cup of hot coffee and enjoy!

I received a set of silicone baking cups (as mentioned above) using
Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
