Mini Coffee Cakes

Happy Coffee Cake Day!
So for Coffee Cake Day, guess what? I made Coffee Cake!
Cake Ingredients:
2 C flour
1 C Sugar
3 1/2 tsp (1 tbsp + 1/2 tsp) baking powder
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 C) unsalted butter, melted
1/2 tsp of salt
1 C Milk
2 large eggs, room temperature

Crumb Topping Ingredients:
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 C) salted butter, melted
1/4 C packed dark brown sugar
3/4 C granulated sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
2 C flour

Cinnamon Sugar Ingredients:
1/4 C granulated sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 390.
Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Whisk together butter, milk, and egg in a large bowl.
When combined, whisk in flour mixture until just combined - batter will be lumpy.
Pour batter into the liners of a cupcake pan until ~ 2/3 - 1/2 full. (I put about 2 tblsp in each)
Then for the crumble topping:
Whisk together butter, sugars, cinnamon, and salt until smooth.
Stir in flour with whisk, then stir through with a butter knife to create crumbies.
Add more flour as needed to get a crumby texture.
The crumbs will crisp up and dry out in the oven.
Sprinkle crumbs over top of mini cakes, and LOAD 'EM UP - the crumbs are the best part!
Sprinkle cinnamon sugar (mix together the sugar and cinnamon) over the top of the crumbs and the top of the muffins/cakes.

Bake cake until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, ~ 20 minutes.
Cool in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes, then remove the cupcakes from the pan and let cool completely on the wire rack.

1 1/2 C powdered sugar
3 tbsp butter, melted
2 tbsp milk

Melt the butter in a saucepan.
When completely melted, add 1 C of powdered sugar. Mix on very low heat.
Add milk and mix.
Add the rest of the powdered sugar and mix until all incorporated.
Spoon on top of the cupcakes and enjoy!
