Vanilla Crumb Cakes / Muffins - Southern Living

“This recipe came from the book 2008 Christmas with Southern Living. The muffins bake up light and moist with a faint aroma of nutmeg. The only thing that might make them better is some pecans or chopped apple. The added crunch would make them just about perfect.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease 4 cups in a jumbo muffin pan. Fill the 2 empty cups halfway with water.

  4. Spoon batter evenly into a greased jumbo muffin pan, filling 4 muffins with batter. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture evenly over batter, pressing lightly into batter.
  5. Bake 350 for 28 to 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, remove cakes from pan, and let cool completely on wire rack. Drizzle with Vanilla Glaze.
