 Chocolate Ripple:
 Mix flour, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.  Cut in butter until mixture

 Dissolve coffee in hot water, cool.  Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon
 and salt in a large bowl.  Beat eggs, sour cream, melted butter and coffee
 together with a whisk or fork.  Stir liquid into dry ingredients, stirring
 just until moistened.  Batter will be stiff.  Spoon half the batter into
 muffin cups.  Spoon a heaping tbsp of ripple mixture on top.  Top with
 remaining batter.  Bake at 400 F for 20 - 25 minutes or till firm to the
 touch.  Cool in pan 5 minutes, remove muffins and cool on a rack.  If desired,
