I made these for my in-laws and they turned out wonderful! If you like coffe cake you will love these. The topping did crumble a bit, but I didn't see it as a big deal. My husband suggested trying to mix some of the topping throughout the batter, so I might try that next time.

Delicious! I made them healtheir by using 1 cup wheat flour/ 1 cup all-purpose flour; I decreased the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and decreased the butter to 1/4 cup and added and additional 2/3 cup natural appleauce. They were very flavorful, moist and a healthy breakfast!

Wow- really wish I would have read the ratings on this. My muffins fell in the middle just like everyone elses. What is wrong with this recipe?

I would definitely make this again! The Sour Cream Coffee Cake has been a favorite for years. Baked as muffins in folded paper muffin liners makes a great presentation. Served with fresh fruit.

I followed the recipe exactly and was so disappointed. The topping crumbled off the top and most landed on my plate, the cake part of the muffin was bland and pasty. No flavor in these muffins at all, no texture or crunch, even on the top. Maybe some butter could have helped the topping? Won't make these again.

I made the muffins this morning and they taste WONDERFUL. My only problem is they fell in the middle (everyone of them) where most of the topping is located. I baked them in 2 batches - made the second batch a little smaller and tried to push the topping to the sides. Fell again. It is almost like the batter is too soft to hold up the pecans and sugar. Any suggestions? I want to make them again without "pits" in the middle.

This is the second time I have made these muffins because the first time they sank in the middle and I thought I used the wrong flour. But I just made them again, correctly, and they still sunk in the middle, all of them. They don't even have the texture of muffins.

Looking at the ingredient list you'd think this would be a great recipe but they do sink in the middle and have a poor texture.

I have made these muffins several times and they are awesome. To those who say theirs are sinking in the middle, you may be overmixing them. The recipe says to stir in the flour. Don't use your mixer.

This is the best muffin I have ever had and it makes a lot of them. LOVE THEM!

These were sooo yummy. Just be prepared for the topping to fall off when eating and kinda makes a mess -- worth it though. But I wouldn't serve these to kids.
