Cappuccino Muffins, Anyone?


Hello, friends!

This is going to be a bit of a different Thanksgiving around here this year. Two of our sons are traveling and won't be here for our family festivities, but I decided a long time ago that our holiday would be whenever we are together. I don't want to be "that" mother-in-law. You know the one I'm talking about?

Thought so.

We are going to have guests in our home for two nights, maybe three so I have been doing a little preparation for that. I just took these delicious muffins out of the oven. They are quick and easy and good, so you might want to give them a try!

Susan's Cappuccino Muffins 

( I didn't really invent them. They originally came from Taste of Home, as many good recipes do.)

prep: 20 min.
bake: 25 min.

2 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 t. baking powder
2 t. instant coffee granules
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. salt
1 egg
1 c. milk
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 t. vanilla
1 c. miniature chocolate chips (which i forgot. dang it.)

6 T. flour
1/4 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 c. butter

In a lg. mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugars, baking powder, coffee granules, cinnamon and salt. Whisk the egg, milk, butter and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full.

For topping, combine the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over batter. Bake 375 for 22-24 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

Yield 15 muffins

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving full of friends, family, and fun!
