Brown sugar mini muffin with coffee glaze: Little treats, with a big smile!!

Oh! I love this ^^. I always love the taste of brown sugar, it didn't have a sharp sweetness as the white sugar and it makes cake super moist too. Actually I bake these muffins when I feel I need a little treat for myself. It's different from other muffins esp. on its softness.

I think the key that makes this muffin so soft is Crème Fraîche, as I told you that after I started making it, I can't stop using it, haha. I use it in any recipe that calls for sour cream, buttermilk or yogurt (and start to use instead of milk too, hehehe) Don't have to ask me about the calories I just stop paying attention to it lately, haha. I believe that when you're happy your health will be better too (but as I said a moderation is a must, eat the thing that you want but not too much so you will be able to eat it for a long long time).
The original recipe comes form the book: ....................... my favorite author, that I just seen to forget about her lately. Actually I didn't forget, I just have too many things, I want to do but they aren't come from her books, haha. 
So, I think it's a good time for me to make some simple recipe from her book and make it better, so I take this book out of the shelf and add a magic ingredient into this muffin and yes, I love it more than before.
The taste of the brown sugar from the muffin goes along very well with the coffee glaze, I think they are born to be a pair. The size of the muffin is so small that you will be happy to have 2 or 3 pieces like me.
I suggest you to serve this muffin with a cup of hot coffee and a lot of smile on your face, and I know that you will get a bigger smile from the people you serve this to.

Hi Pook!
Can you tell me how the Creme Fraiche affect to the texture of the muffin and would it be ok if I just skip it from the recipie?

Hi, AnitaH
If you want to use plain flour, substitute 20g of plain flour with corn starch.

Hi, Anonymous
You can use plain yogurt or sour cream but the cake will be drier.
