1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1/3 cup unsalted butter

For fun individual servings, use a 12 serving muffin tin. Line or grease the muffin tin before filling.

Change up the spices! Swap cinnamon for ground nutmeg and allspice.

Add diced apples and replace the cinnamon with apple pie spice. Baking time may be longer due to the added moisture of the apples

Serve with a vanilla glaze or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Best served warm but is just as delicious at room temperature or cold. Re-heat in 10-second increments in the microwave.

Store in an airtight container either at room temperature for 2-3 days or refrigerated for a week.
