Doctored-Up Chocolate Cake Mix Cupcakes
A few everyday ingredients make an ordinary cake mix cupcake extraordinary!
Leesh and Lu
devil's food cake mix
eggs, and milk instead of water called for on box + 1 extra egg
small package chocolate instant pudding
High Altitude: 2 tablepoons flour
For the Cream Cheese Frosting
at room temperature
clear vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350. Line muffin tins with paper baking cups.
Combine all ingredients for the cupcakes in a large bowl. Beat with a mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes.
Fill each baking cup 1/2 -2/3 full. Bake for 19-23 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Remove to cooling rack and cool completely before frosting.
For the frosting
Beat cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy. Add powdered sugar and salt and mix until incorporated. Stir in vanilla extract.
This recipe also works great in a bundt pan, but you may need to add a few minutes to the baking time on the box mix to compensate for the extra added moisture.
