This recipe crossed my path a while back, and I thought, Ooooh! Gotta make those! Could they possibly be as good as I remember them? You used to be able to pick up foil pans of these, like a 6X6,” in the supermarket. They were a favourite in our household for breakfast, or anytime. Alas, after moving, I was not able to find them anymore, so for years, thought they were a thing of the past.

Upon discovering this recipe, I decided to give it a go, and see if I could recreate them. I am very happy to report, these fit the bill. They were printed in a Betty Crocker paperback of all things, references below. You have a moist, cake-like muffin, topped by buttery, large, crumbly streusel. There is a hint of cinnamon to them. The recipe only makes six, if you want more, you can double it.  But six is a nice number for smaller families. Definitely treat worthy!


1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter (no substitute in my mind)
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 cup milk
2 tbsp. powdered sugar
