TWD: Coffee Break Muffins

Coffee Break Muffins

 Rhiani of Chocoholic Anonymous picked Coffee-Break Muffins from Dori's book, Baking: From my Home to Yours. These light and delicate muffins had a delicious coffee flavor, but that wasn't quite enough for us- they needed a little something to make them special.

To half of the batter I added chocolate chips and an Oreo cookie crumb topping, with a coffee/chocolate combination in mind and it was a hit with the mocha lovers at my house.

The cinnamon flavor was not very strong, so next time I would increase the cinnamon in the batter and I would add a cinnamon and sugar struesel topping to the plain muffins to give them that little something extra. The plain muffins are a good starting point for any number of variations, and a nice change from the blueberry or banana muffins we usually make.
