Step 6: In a small bowl, whisk together the brown sugar and chai spice. Evenly distribute the spiced sugar between each muffin liner, using approximately 2 tsp. per muffin. 

Step 7: Top the muffins with the remaining batter, then evenly distribute the streusel on top of each muffin.

Step 8: Bake the muffins for 5 minutes at 425°F / 220°C. Without opening the oven door, reduce the temperature of the oven to 350°F / 175°C. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the muffins comes out clean.


Coffee Glaze

Step 9: In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and 1 tbsp. of coffee until well combined. If the glaze is too thick, add in more coffee until the desired consistency is reached.

Step 10: Once the muffins have cooled to room temperature, drizzle the glaze over each muffin.
