Golden Cinnamon Muffins

Yummy golden muffins topped with cinnamon sugar, best warm out of the oven but good cold too (be sure to wrap them up in plastic wrap so they don't dry out). The secret ingredient that gives these muffins their golden color is butterscotch pudding mix...

These were yummy. Will be making again, however, next time I will try sugar free instant butterscotch pudding mix. Thanks for a great recipe.

These muffins are so moist and delicious. They have a very rich appearance too. My family loved them, and I will be making them regularly. They reheat in the microwave nicely too. Thanks!
