  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Place Reynolds Baking Cups in each of 17 regular-size muffin cups. In large bowl, stir cupcake ingredients just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups.
  • 2
    Bake 16 to 18 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 3
    In 1-quart saucepan, heat 1/3 cup butter over medium heat just until light brown, stirring occasionally. (Watch carefully because butter can burn quickly.) Remove from heat. Cool slightly, about 5 minutes.
  • 4
    In medium bowl, beat butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and enough milk until smooth and spreadable. Spread frosting over cooled cupcakes.

Expert Tips

  • Reynolds StayBrite Baking Cups are fashion-inspired designs that won’t fade during baking.
  • *Do not use margarine or vegetable oil spreads.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
