For the Crumb Topping

- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
For the Muffins
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon calamansi zest
- 2 tablespoons fresh calamansi juice
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sour cream
- 2 cups flour
For the Calamansi Glaze
- 1 cup powdered sugar

In a bowl, combine crumb topping ingredients: flour, sugar, salt, and butter. Stir together with a fork and set aside.
In a bowl, beat eggs using an electric mixer for about 1-2 minutes until thick and frothy.
Add sugar and oil and continue to beat for about 1 to 2 minutes or until creamy.
Add calamansi zest, juice, baking soda, and salt. Beat for about 1 minute.
Add sour cream and beat until combined.
Add flour and using a spoon, stir just until combined. The batter will still be slightly lumpy.
Using a scoop, fill muffin cups up to 3/4 full. Sprinkle the crumb topping mixture on top.
Bake for about 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of muffin comes out clean. Let cool for about 3 to 5 minutes and then transfer to a rack to completely cool.
