Last Minute Cupcakes

I love to bake.

I love to bake things that have multiple steps with a laundry list of ingredients.

But sometimes your child/husband tells you at 8 o’clock at night that they needed a dessert for the school bake sale or company picnic the next day.. That is when I find myself going to the pantry and making my “famous last-minute cupcakes”. They are based on a boxed cake mix ‘classed up’.

You will need:

  • Box Cake Mix (any flavor you like)
  • Whatever additional ingredients the box calls for (mine was eggs, water and Oil)
  • Sour Cream
  • Vanilla
  • Oreos
  • Frosting
  1. Start by making the cake mix per the directions on the box. Then add a 1/4 cup of sour cream and a tablespoon of vanilla. Mix well to incorporate.
  2. Line the cupcake pan with papers and place a Oreo in the bottom of each cupcake paper.
  3. Pour the batter in on top of the Oreo.
  4. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean with inserted into the cupcake.
  5. Allow to cool completely before frosting them.
  6. Pack up for the next day and remind your family that advanced notice is a good thing.

  1. I love that you make this special without a ton of work! I’m sure I’ll need to make these in the near future as I seem to always be operating in last minute mode these days 🙂
