I wanted to make some Hallween themed cupcakes that still tasted good, and this is what I came up with!
Step 1: Ingredients
To make these cupcakes, you will need ingredients for a white cake and some kind of red colored berry preserves of some kind. I used raspberry jam.
I used a boxed french vanilla cake mix and substituted the amount of water they call for with buttermilk and added an extra egg.
Step 2: Preheat oven and mix
Preheat oven to 350 degrees while you mix the ingredients for your cake. Don't mix in the jam yet!
Step 3: Fill Cupcake trays
Fill the cupcake trays about 2/3rds full with the white cake batter that you just mixed. Put about a tablespoon of jam on top of each one. Don't put the jam inside or you wont be able to see it afterwards!
Step 4: Bake and Serve!
Bake cupcakes for about 15-20 minutes, depending on your oven. When a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean, you know they are done. The jam has kind of melted into the cupcakes and the cake puffs up around the jam and they look disgusting! But they taste delicious!
