Moist Coffee Cake Muffins
Topping
•          1 cup finely chopped pecans
•          1/2 cup toffee bits
•          1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
•          1/4 cup butter (4 tablespoons), softened
•          2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
•          1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
•          1 teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Pure Coffee Extract
Combine ingredients in a small bowl and set topping mixture aside.

Muffins
•          2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
•          1 teaspoon baking powder
•          1/2 teaspoon baking soda
•          1/2 teaspoon salt
•          1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
•          1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
•          1/2 cup sugar
•          2 teaspoons Nielsen-Massey Organic Fairtrade Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract
•          2 eggs
•          1/2 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place 18 paper liners into two standard cupcake tins; set aside. 

In a medium bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; whisk to blend and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, add butter, sugars and vanilla extract. With a handheld mixer, beat on medium-high speed until incorporated, about 2-3 minutes. 
Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Reduce speed to low. 
Add dry ingredients one-half at a time alternating with sour cream, beat after each addition; scrape sides of bowl as needed. Do not overmix batter.

Fill each liner with 2 heaping tablespoons of batter then evenly place a heaping tablespoon of topping on batter. Firmly press topping into batter with finger tips. Some of the topping should be visible.

Bake until done about 15-17 minutes. Serve muffins warm. To cool, carefully place muffins in 2 (9 x 13 inches) pans and cover with plastic wrap; set aside to cool. Make sure the wrap does not touch the muffin tops; this method of cooling will make delicious Moist Coffee Cake Muffins.
