St. Patrick's Day Cupcakes Recipe

These cupcakes go together super-quick. Pistachio pudding mix gives them a mild flavor and pretty pastel color that makes them perfect for St. Patrick's Day. —Kathy Meyer, Almond, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant pistachio pudding mix
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/4 cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Green food coloring, optional
  • Cream cheese frosting

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, pudding mix, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; add to dry ingredients and mix until blended.
  • 2. Fill paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 375° for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Add food coloring to frosting if desired; frost cupcakes. Yield: 1 dozen.

"Okay I finally just made these cupcakes today as I was waiting for a reply from TOH to correct the recipe. I made mini cupcakes (yielded 52). Couldn't wait to taste them and was very disappointed when I did eat one. They were very blah. These are for the children in my class at school tomorrow. Hopefully the frosting (tinted green with decorations) will make them taste better. Sorry!"

"We have reviewed the method of this recipe and found an error. (The ingredients and amounts are correct.) The method should read: In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, pudding mix, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; add to dry ingredients and mix until blended.

We apologize for the error but thank you for bringing it to our attention. The revised recipe will be reflected here soon.

"I agree with Kerry Amundson (first reviewer) this recipe needs help. I can figure it out but she is right in saying that cinnamon and baking soda are not listed in the list of ingredients. And also there is no mention of when to add the pistachio pudding and vanilla extract. Bad instructions."
