In large bowl, beat cake mix, cinnamon, nutmeg, the remaining 1/2 cup butter, water and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Add preserves; beat 30 seconds. Spoon about 1/4 cup cake batter over crumbly mixture in each muffin cup.
