Ingredients

  • ¾ cup (150g) granulated sugar
  • cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt plus a pinch for the crumble
  • 1 ½ cups + 2 tablespoons (201g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons (28g) butter melted
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ cup (50g) packed brown sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray mini muffin pans with nonstick cooking spray (I like using the nonstick spray that contains flour for these).
  • 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.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days for freeze for up to one month. You may also bake them in in mini muffin liners instead of straight in the muffin pan.

Notes

  • If you want to, you can add some chopped pecans or walnuts to the crumble.
  • If you’re feeling like a regular crumb cake and not muffins, make it in an 8×8 pan. Works every time!
  • This also makes 12 regular sized muffins.
