Breakfast Cupcakes with a Cinnamon Glaze

It seems like it has been a while since I have posted here, and for that I am sorry. The good news is that I have a recipe to post today. Yay! They are cupcakes, yum, with a cinnamon glaze. They are so good and they are the perfect thing for breakfast.

Why cupcakes and not muffins, you ask? Well, I wanted to try something different. Althought, these cupcake do not have frosting on them. I thought frosting would be too sweet for morning. That's why I topped them with a glaze instead. Theses vanilla cupcakes have pecans and raisins in them to add some fall flavors. I hope you enjoy them and try your own combonations.

What you will need:

white box cake mix
vegitable oil
egg whites
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup raisins


1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 T. milk
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

What to do:

1. Make cake mix. Following the directions on the box.

2. Add pecans and raisins. Mix well.

3.Pour mixture into cupcake liners in a muffin pan.

4.Bake cupcakes according to the instructions on the box.

5. While the cupcakes are cooling mis powdered sugar and milk together until powdered suger is desalved. Add cinnamon and mix well.

6. While the cupcakes are still warm spread the glaze over the top of the cupcakes.
