New York Style Coffee Cake Crumb Muffins

These New York Style Coffee Cake Crumb Muffins actually have a little coffee in them, and they’re topped with a cream cheese glaze. You’ll love them as part of your breakfast, for a coffee break, or even as dessert. And the addition of ground hazelnut makes them perfect to have with hazelnut coffee!
