Cinnamon Streusel

This streusel topping recipe will really spruce up your homemade muffins, pies, coffee cakes and quick breads. Cinnamon streusel takes just seconds to mix up in a food processor, or you can just mix it up in a bowl using a fork. Then just sprinkle it over your muffins or pie right before baking.

Note: The recipe below is enough streusel topping for a single batch of muffins, and to make enough to top a 9-inch pie, you'd just double the recipe.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ stick unsalted butter
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until crumbly. Alternately, you can mash the ingredients together in a bowl using a fork, or just smoosh everything together with your fingers.

  2. Sprinkle over muffins, pies or coffee cake immediately before baking.
