Delicious Bananas Foster Muffins (from a mix)

I just entered this recipe in the Martha White Muffin Contest. It turned out REALLY well, so I wanted to share it with you. It makes 10 fancy muffins for less than 3 bucks of ingredients.....not bad.

Marthalicious Bananas Foster Muffinettas

2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
1-7.6 ounce package Martha White Banana Nut Muffin Mix

Bananas Foster Sauce:
2 medium bananas, sliced into thin circles
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon imitation rum flavoring

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray 10 of the 12 muffin cups with cooking spray. Mix all the ingredients for the batter. It makes a stiff batter. Divide the batter equally among the 10 muffin cups, about a tablespoon each. Set the muffin tin aside.

In a medium saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Over a medium heat, stir until the sugar is dissolved. When the mixture is combined, gently fold in the bananas and rum flavoring. Stir and cook for 1-2 minutes. Top the muffin batter  with a 1/10th of the Bananas Foster Sauce.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.
