White Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes

wcrcI am a big fan of shortcuts in cooking and baking. I am also a big fan of Immaculate Baking Company Yellow Scratch Cake Mix. It’s got a nice buttery flavor. Delicious.

We woke up to some nasty freezing rain in Central Maryland. I don’t have to be anywhere until 3:00 and even that outing has moved to a tentative status due to the state of the roads. Perfect day for baking. I have two boxes of my favorite baking mix that I got for My Faithful Assistant to use over Thanksgiving weekend. He opted out of my diabolical plot to have baked goods with no work. My loss is my own gain, I guess!

White Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes
1 box Immaculate Yellow Scratch Cake Mix prepared according to instructions
3/4 cup white chocolate chips, melted
1 cup fresh raspberries – Sorry! Frozen are not recommended for this. Too mushy.

  1. Prepare the mix according to the instructions on the box.
  2. Fold in the melted white chocolate so it’s sort of streaked through the batter.
  3. Gently fold in the raspberries.
  4. Transfer to muffin tin and bake according to the box instructions.
  5. Carefully remove your cupcakes from the pan and, when cool, drizzle with melted white chocolate.

In a word, AMAZING! My cupcakes were tender and buttery and practically melted in my mouth.

As you can see, I am not a very good drizzler. I melted a small amount of chips in a measuring cup and the spout wasn’t really conducive to drizzling so we have more of a plop.

This would make a very tasty brunch cake, and with Christmas falling on a Sunday this year, I think there will be a lot of people having some lovely Christmas brunches. Not a fan of raspberries? No worries! Pick a different fresh fruit. As I mentioned above, frozen are not recommended for this. They will be mushy and ruin your cute little cakes.

If you’re stuck inside, I hope you’re getting some baking done too!

Enjoy!
