  • Summary

    These are soft, fluffy muffins made with buttermilk, oil, and there’s cream cheese swirled into the batter so it’s impossible to have dry muffins. The crumb topping adds texture and an extra pop of sweetness. I can’t resist crumb toppings and wanted to pick those sandy, slightly crunchy crumbs right off. When you’re filling your muffin pan with batter, make sure not to overfill because you need to account for the crumb topping and oven rising. They’d be so festive for holiday parties from Christmas to Valentine’s Day or anytime. Red velvet fans love it year-round and the muffins will be a hit with any red velvet lover.
