Yogurt Coffee Cake Muffins

Tweaking a favorite coffee cake recipe, I came up with these tender, tasty muffins.  They freeze well and are handy to warm a few at a time to serve alongside eggs for breakfast or soup for lunch.

Yogurt Coffee Cake Muffins

  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c. plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 c. unbleached, all-purpose flour
  • 1 c. whole wheat flour


  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 T. sugar
  • 1 1/2 T. brown sugar

** sour cream is a nice substitute for plain yogurt

** the topping is also delicious with chopped pecans added

Cream butter and sugar.  Add eggs, yogurt (sour cream) and vanilla.  Mix well.  Combine baking soda, baking powder and flours.  Add to wet mixture.  Scoop into greased muffin tins.  Sprinkle topping over each muffin.  Bake at 350° for 20-22 minutes.  Yield:  2 dozen muffins

  11. Hi Amy,

    Are these muffins supposed to have any salt? I have a bad habit of adding extra salt to things so maybe they aren’t supposed to have any 🙂

    Thanks! Katie
