surprise cream filled cupcakes


nothing better than biting into a moist chocolate cupcake and being surprised by a sweet creamy filling! unless you're my husband, who doesn't like frosting. . . this is an adaptation of my mil's recipe for ho ho cupcakes. it is mostly from scratch, but can be simplified by substituting a can of your favorite prepared frosting for the tops of the cupcakes. these are a huge hit at my childrens’ birthday parties, with the adults as well as the kids!

  1. Prepare cake mix according to the package directions
  2. Substituting coffee for the water called for on the box
  3. If desired
  4. A slightly richer chocolate flavor will result
  5. But no detectable coffee flavor
  6. Beat with mixer on low until all flour is moistened
  7. Then beat for 2 minute on medium speed
  8. As directed on the box
  9. Really
  10. Any kind of cake mix you desire can be used
  11. Just follow the boxs directions
  12. Divide into 24 paper muffin liners that have been sprayed with non-stick spray for easy removal from cakes
  13. Bake at 325 degrees for 18 to 22 minutes
  14. Or until toothpick comes out clean
  15. The lower temperature helps the cakes to remain moist and even topped--a trick i learned from my wilton class instructor ! remove cakes to a rack to cool
  16. In a small saucepan
  17. Whisk flour into milk until there are no lumps
  18. Heat milk and flour on medium low heat
  19. Stirring constantly until mixture thickens to a gravy consistency
  20. Remove from hot pan into a cool bowl and cover with saran
  21. Allow to cool to room temperature
  22. A cool water bath or refrigeration will speed up this process
  23. In a mixing bowl
  24. Cream shortening and granulated sugar about 5 minutes
  25. Add cooled milk-flour gravy and beat until fluffy and granulated sugar is dissolved completely
  26. About another 5 minutes
  27. Be sure to scrape your bowl and beater so that the grains of sugar at the top will be beaten in and dissolved
  28. If in doubt
  29. Whip more
  30. Now add vanilla and powdered sugar and whip well
  31. Once cakes are fully cooled
  32. Place filling in a frosting bag with a star
  33. Give a good squeeze to the bag
  34. Enough to cause the top of the cupcake to rise
  35. But not enough to cause it to crack
  36. If it does crack
  37. Dont worry
  38. The buttercream will cover it ! lift out the
  39. Freshly baked and cooled cupcakes
  40. Or cupcakes stored in an airtight container until you are ready to frost them
  41. Are less likely to crack
  42. Make the buttercream frosting for the cupcake tops by creaming marga
