  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas mark 4. Place the muffin cases into the tray.
  2. Put all the ingredients for the streusel topping, except hazelnuts, into a food processor and pulse to make coarse crumbs. Stir in the hazelnuts if using. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar and bicarbonate of soda. In another bowl or food mixer, beat the eggs and mix in the crème fraiche, cooled butter, coffee and milk.
  4. Stir the wet mix into the flour mix, until just combined. It should drop slowly from the beater. If dry, add a little more milk.
