CADBURY CUPCAKE RECIPE:
( printer friendly version)
:: cake ::
german chocolate cake mix(make sure it has pudding in the mix)
eggs (room temperature)
whiskey (we LOVE Jack Daniels®)
1 Preheat oven to 350. Line muffin tins with paper liners. Spray with non-stick butter spray and sprinkle the bottom of the liners with powdered sugar.
2 Make the Cadbury Filling (see recipe below) and set aside.
3 Put all ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat on medium until incorporated. Increase to medium high and beat for 2 minutes.
4 Divide batter evenly into the prepared cups, filling each about three-quarters full.
5 Bake for 15-18 minutes, rotating the pan half way through, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Move to wire racks for cooling.
6 As cakes are cooling, carefully remove a portion from the center of the cupcake (you only need to remove a small pinch sized piece).
7 Before the cakes are fully cooled inject some Cadbury Filling into the holes you made in the center using a large star tip.
8 Top each cake with Buttercream Dipped Frosting (see recipe below).
9 Serve and store at room temperature.
