It’s been a little while since I’ve done a cooking/baking post so I thought I’d share a recipe I’ve been making for the last few weeks. I started making these when G was trying to look like a supermodel for the cruise and I wanted to do some baking. I got the recipe for Super Moist Low Fat Chocolate Cupcakes from SkinnyTaste. You can find the recipe here.
The best part about this recipe (besides eating all the cupcakes) is that it only requires 3 ingredients!
Well those three and water, but I don’t count water as an ingredient.
So you first mix the pumpkin and the water (I don’t like pumpkin so this kind of grosses me out).
But you don’t taste it all so I just go with it. Right after this is mixed, you throw in the pudding mix and stir away.
In the recipe, it says to blend it with a mixer, but I found that a hand mixer goes WAY too fast and the batter is too liquid-y so it kind of flies all over. I used a whisk this time and it worked well (and pudding wasn’t splashed all over the kitchen).
Then I added the cake mix:
The batter turns out to be kind of airy or spongy but it still tastes good!
G is such a big help!
I spray a ton of non-stick cooking spray on the cupcake pans because I don’t like to use cupcake wrappers…they hog all the cake. Greedy wrappers.
I put about half of the batter into these two pans.
I prefer to make little, tiny cupcakes because then I can eat 100 and can pretend it’s the same as eating only 1! Genius, right?
And before you know it, these little cupcakes are ready!
Because I used a lot of cooking spray, they came right out of the pans.
I don’t put any frosting on them (because I’m too lazy) and they taste magical without it. G and I have no problem eating them all (usually before Monday morning).
On a side note: for those football fans out there (or football fans by default –>husband makes you watch)…is it just me or does Harry Douglas sound like a naughty name for lady parts? For those non-football fans, Harry Douglas plays for the Atlanta Falcons and he was talked about a lot in the game yesterday.
