Preheat your oven to 400°F.
Lightly grease muffin tins.

Prepare the topping by mixing the ingredients together until crumbly. Set aside.

Prepare the filling by mixing ingredients with enough water to make filling a soft, pudding-like consistency. Set it aside.

To make the batter:
In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, milk, and eggs.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.
Add the dry mixture to the liquid, stirring just until combined.

Divide half the batter evenly among the muffin cups.
Dollop 2 tsp. cinnamon filling onto each muffin,
then top with the remaining batter.
Sprinkle with topping, pressing it in lightly.

Bake the muffins for 20 to 25 minutes, or until they’re golden brown.
Remove them from the oven,
and wait 5 minutes before transferring them from the pan to a rack to cool.
