Convenience Cupcakes...


I've been baking...... way too much...... and that's not really the best thing to do when you are trying to shed some pounds.

I think my neighbors love me, because I'm shoving desserts in their faces. I cannot have these cupcakes in my house. I WILL eat them...... all of them!

I love pineapple... and mandarin oranges... and whipped cream... and cake. Put them all together and I've got a big problem on my hands. A problem that pretty much goes from my hands to my mouth to my waistline...... fo' shizzle.

Sorry about that... I get a kick out of talking like Snoop Dogg every now and then.

Anyway, I like to make cupcakes, but you could make a cake with the recipe. I just like cupcakes...... correction...... I LOVE cupcakes. They're just so cute!

... fo' shizzle... sorry again.

Convenience Cupcakes
  • 1 box (18.25 Oz. Box) Yellow Cake Mix
  • 4 whole Eggs
  • ½ cups Milk
  • 1 can Mandarin Oranges With Juices (11 Oz. Can)
  • 1 carton Whipped Topping, Thawed (7 Or 9 Oz. Container)
  • 1 package Instant Vanilla Pudding (3 Oz. Package)
  • 1 can Crushed Pineapple With Juices (8 OZ. Can)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).

Mix and beat the cake mix, eggs, milk, and mandarin oranges (with juice) for 4 minutes. Bake in cupcake liners or two 9-inch greased round pans for 20-25 minutes. Once done, let cool completely. Next, beat the remaining ingredients in a mixer for 1 minute and then frost cupcakes. You could also place this as a filling in between layers and on top of the cake. Makes 24 cupcakes or a two layer cake.
