If you follow my blog, I'm sorry for my hiatus. I've been super busy these past few months, but I'm back with some fantastic recipes to share with you. Today's recipe is my mother-in-law's, and every time I make it multiple people ask me for the recipe. In fact, one of my co-workers asks me to make him some every day that I see him. I am making him some tomorrow, and hence, here is the recipe. :)
Kathy's Cinnamon Muffins
2/3 cup brown sugar
4 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup - 1 cup walnuts, chopped
1 package yellow cake mix; I always use Pillsbury
1 3.4 oz package vanilla instant pudding
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup water
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 24 cupcake wells with liners. In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar, the cinnamon and the walnuts. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding, oil, water, eggs and vanilla. Fill the cupcake wells with half of the batter (a little under half way up the well.) Add the brown sugar - cinnamon mixture to the cupcake wells until the muffin mix is covered. Add the second half of the batter on top of the brown sugar. If you have any left over brown sugar, you can sprinkle a little more on top.
Bake for about 19 minutes, but be sure to check them as everyone's oven is different. Allow the muffins to cool and then make your glaze mixture. Drizzle the glaze on top, and then you're done!
