Ingredients

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F (350°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 large (2 3/4x1 1/4-inch) muffin cups. In small bowl, mix Topping ingredients; set aside.

    In large bowl, beat cake mix, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 3/4 cup milk, softened butter, eggs and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon with electric mixer on medium speed, until blended. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Sprinkle brown sugar mixture evenly over batter in cups, about 1/2 teaspoon each.

    In small bowl, beat powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon of the milk with spoon, until well blended. Continue adding milk 1/2 teaspoon at a time until desired glaze consistency. Drizzle over muffins. Store loosely covered at room temperature.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Make sure brown sugar has no lumps, and to evenly sprinkle topping mixture over batter in cups, to avoid too much in one spot.
  • tip 2
    An ice cream scoop is a good tool to use for filling the muffin cups with batter.
  • tip 3
    To soften butter, cut into small pieces and leave at room temperature. A faster method is to microwave the butter in 5-second increments, turning the butter frequently, so butter is softened but not melted.
