St. Patrick's Day Cupcakes

To celebrate St. Patrick's Day, I will be blogging a new treat each day of this week! Today I am excited to share the St. Patty's Cupcakes I made! They are really good and incredibly moist, which is always a pleasant surprise!

Yields: Between 12 and 18 cupcakes; Serving Size: 1 Cupcake
Lets get down to business; here are the ingredients you will need:
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 package instant lemon, vanilla or pistachio pudding mix
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • green food coloring
  • cream cheese or vanilla frosting [I used both!]
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, pudding mix, baking powder and salt
  • In another bowl, beat the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix until blended
  • Fill paper - lined muffin cups 3/4 of the way full
  • Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean
  • Cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan and allowing to cool completely
  • Add food coloring to the frosting and then frost the cupcakes
These cupcakes are very good! It was hard giving them away, but well worth saving the calories! I mixed the food coloring with the cream cheese frosting and let the vanilla icing stand alone and just dusted the tops with green sugared sprinkles. I liked how they all looked; it was a great contrast!
I hope you all give these a try soon!
Until Next Time,
Happy Baking

I really need a cupcake and these look great. Keep the new recipes coming.I am always excited to see the new things you are making and experimenting with.The caloric information is very nice also...if only I knew how to stop after one serving instead of stopping when there is nothing left.
