Recipe: Coffee Cake Muffins

One of my favorite times of the day is after supper when I enjoy a dessert.
My husband likes cookies but I am more of a muffin, cake eater.
I was looking in an old cookbook from 1990 and found this recipe.
What drew me to share it is how simple it is to prepare.
Enjoy your sweets,
