Bite Sized Coffee Cakes

Both of my little muffins love muffins.  No matter the size they will devour them in one bite so the bite-sizeyr the better.  There’s a special place in my heart for coffee cake mostly because my father who never rarely went to the grocery store used to bring home Entenmann’s Crumb Coffee Cake as a special treat on the weekends.

He’d use a sharp steak knife to cut off a sliver and the the knife would remain in the box as long as their was cake to be sliced.  Every time anyone walked by a small sliver would be cut off and by the end of the weekend we’d be pressing crumbs with our fingers and licking them off making sure we got every last bite.

Then, whoever threw away the box had to make sure the knife didn’t go in the trash with it.  There were plenty of times I had to go dumpster diving for that darn knife!  These mini muffins are about the same amount of cake as a sliver but they aren’t from a box and they are much cuter!

    I put these in mini cupcake liners. Is that why they are taking a lot longer to bake? 16-18 minutes at least, compared to the recommended 8-10.
