This versatile Brown Sugar Streusel can be used in so many ways and adds an extra tasty flavor to so many delicious desserts! I absolutely love topping just about any muffin variety with this brown sugar and cinnamon streusel for a sweet, crunchy layer.
Don’t limit the use of this sweet streusel to just toppings…swirl it into cheesecakes and coffee cakes, quick breads, and so much more!!
We’ve made a couple batches of banana based muffins this week, so you can see this yummy streusel in use on our Apple Banana Muffins today. Enjoy!
*If you will be baking something for a long period of time, the streusel will caramelize. Add toward the last 10-15 minutes of baking for better results.

- 2 Tbsp butter

- In a small to medium mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Add the butter in tablespoon size pats, then cut into the dry mixture using a pastry cutter until the butter pieces are small, pea-sized crumbles.
