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 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1-1/4 cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 can (16 ounces) cream cheese frosting
  • Green food coloring and gold sprinkles, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, whisk 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° until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 18-22 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Add food coloring to frosting if desired; frost cupcakes and decorate with sprinkles.
