Cinnamon Crumb Muffins

I'm happy to be rejoining the #MuffinMonday bakers after a few months off.  I've been in a bit of a cooking slump overall so I jotted some potential flavors down on slips of paper and let my guys decide.  The winner for January was Cinnamon Crumb Muffins from Taste of Home. I doubled the recipe because 6 muffins would not last very long around here. I made a few other changes starting with decreasing the amount of espresso powder and increasing the amount of cinnamon in the dry ingredients. I also added a splash of vanilla into the wet ingredients. The key to the muffin method is to combine the wet into the dry like you're late for an appointment.  I like to use a spatula and almost fold the ingredients together. I use a large cookie scoop to distribute the batter evenly. This time I used some brightly colored liners but it's really not necessary with the Wilton pan. I struggle with crumbles, I'm not sure why.  I hate cutting with a pastry blender or two forks so
