Muffins: Preheat your oven to
350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and place the oven rack in the center of the oven. Line
12 muffin cups with paper liners, or you can butter, or
spray the muffin cups with a non stick vegetable spray.
In a bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, and ground cinnamon. With a pastry
blender or your fingertips, blend the butter into the flour mixture until you
have coarse crumbs.
Coffee Cake: In a separate bowl, whisk
together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In the bowl of
your electric stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment
(or with a hand mixer), beat the butter until
smooth. Add the sugar and vanilla extract and beat until light and fluffy (about 3-4 minutes).
Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed. Add the eggs,
one at a time, beating well after each addition. Then, with the mixer on low
speed, add the flour mixture (in three additions) alternately with the sour cream
(in two additions), starting and ending with the flour. Mix
only until combined.
