I'm going to share a secret recipe with you. . .for using a prepackaged cake mix to make cupcakes when you're in a hurry. They turn out moist, fluffy, and taste homemade every time. My friend called this recipe Lion House Cake Mix Cupcakes and I have no idea where she got it from, but I'm glad she shared it with me.
LION HOUSE CAKE MIX CUPCAKES
1 prepackaged cake mix, any flavor
1 cup HOT water
1/3 cup oil
Combined all ingredients together and mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. Put cupcake liners in cupcake tin, and fill only half-way full. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.
Notes: Yields 18-22 cupcakes
