  • Mix brown sugar and butter together in a bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each one.

  • Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.

  • Stir flour mixture, milk, and dragon eyes into the sugar mixture. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tins.

  • Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Coconut milk, fruit juice, or another liquid of your choosing can be substituted for the milk if desired. I once made them with a leftover fruit smoothie; it was delicious! You can be creative, but if you add something thick like a smoothie, you'll need a little more of it.
