I still remember the night that I baked Cinnamon Streusel Orange Muffins with my Lil Man. We had an awesome time working together! So I dug up this post to share again; it’s a great recipe for a cool fall morning with a warm cup of coffee. We now make Cinnamon Citrus Crumbles (and sometimes add cranberries for an autumn touch of pizazz) and they are delicious!

We found the recipe online HERE and followed it to a tee, although we have since tweaked it to fit our new lifestyle (our recipe below).

As always, the first step is to find a WONDERFUL ASSISTANT for your cooking adventure…
then don your aprons and wash your hands.
Next, we pull out everything we’ll need and set it out so it’s easy to access.
For this recipe, we used 2 different mixing bowls as well as 2 little glass bowls.
The first mixing bowl was for our dry ingredients and the 2nd for our wet ingredients.
After stirring the dry ingredients thoroughly and whisking the wet ingredients thoroughly,
Lil Man carefully poured the moist ingredients into the dry.
Then he stirred them until it was mixed well, but not lumpy.
At this point we turned on the oven to preheat it to 350.
In one of the little glass bowls Lil Man mixed the filling ingredients together
and in the other he mixed the streusel topping.
We filled a 1/4 cup scoop about half way with batter to measure it into the {greased} muffin tray
so that the muffin cups would be just under half full.
Next, we sprinkled about a teaspoon of filling onto each muffin cup.
Then we topped them off with the rest of the batter and generously added the streusel topping.
They baked at 350 for 25 minutes and came out DELICIOUS!
