Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350ºF. Place Reynolds Baking Cups in each of 18 regular-size muffin cups. In small bowl, stir together sugar and cinnamon; set aside.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Reynolds StayBrite Baking Cups are fashion-inspired designs that won’t fade during baking.

If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.

If you do not have a decorating bag, you can use a resealable freezer or food-storage plastic bag. Simply snip a small opening at one bottom corner of the bag before piping frosting.

If you prefer, you can substitute any nut of your choice for the pecans or omit them altogether.
