Cinnamon Muffins


Since traveling with two children who have celiac can be challenging, we pack most of our food on road trips. The last time we went to Disney our mom made Cinnamon Muffins for breakfast. They were a big hit! For Father’s Day, our dad requested that we make them…so here we go!

Since gluten free flour is expensive and can be difficult for us to use, our mom started to try different box mixes and found Pilsbury Gluten Free Classic Yellow Cake Mix. We love using it and it makes things easier for us in the kitchen.

To get started, you will need:IMG_2640

  • 1 box of Pilsbury Gluten Free Classic Yellow Cake Mix
  • We follow the recipe on the back of the box:
  • 3 eggs, 1/3 cup oil, 1 cup water (we add 1tsp almond extract because we like it)

For the filling and topping, you will need:

3/4 stick of melted butter

1 cup brown sugar

3 Tbsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350′. Line muffin pan with liners. Follow the recipe on the back of the cake mix. (almond extract is optional). Melt butter in a pot or microwave. Once the butter melts, add the brown sugar and cinnamon. The mixture should not be runny so add more brown sugar and cinnamon if you need to. Fill the muffin liners about 1/3 full with cake mix.

Put a spoonful of the brown sugar mixture in the middle, then top with more cake mix.

After that, we put a little bit more brown sugar mixture on top and swirl it with a knife or your finger. Bake according to the cupcake directions on the box.


Hope you enjoy our recipe and Happy Father’s Day Daddy!

Sydney, Jacob and Jax
