For the most part I try to make my cakes and cupcakes from scratch these days, but with the small stockpile of cake mixes I’ve acquired I’d better use them right? Plus they come in handy in a pinch. But I’m not talking about making cupcakes according to the box….oh no that just wont do. How about a twist?
Box Cake Up-Do
Makes 24 cupcakes
1 box devil’s food cake mix (I used Dunkin Hines)
1 small package Jello instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup buttermilk, (you can also use sour cream if you don’t have buttermilk)
1 cup vegetable oil (I used canola because that’s what I had on hand)
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl of a mixer put together everything except chocolate chips. Batter will be thick. Stir in the chocolate chips. Scoop batter into cupcake pan lined with cupcake papers or silicone cupcake liners. Place in oven and bake according to package. Check with a toothpick. If cupcake needs a bit more baking then check after another 3-5 min. Cool in pan a few minutes before completely cooling on wire rack.
Frost and enjoy 🙂
