So I made these this weekend. Be warned, they are extremely addictive and way too easy to eat way too many. Kind of like a cupcake but not really, so I’m calling them explosions. No dynamite necessary.
Ingredients for Batter
1 package of Yellow Cake Mix
3 oz package of Lemon Pudding Mix (I could only find sugar free at the store, so I added a couple sprinkles of sugar to the mix.)
3/4 cup Vegetable Oil
Splash of Lemon Juice
Ingredients for Glaze
4 cups Powdered Sugar
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (about 1 and half lemons)
1 Lemon zested
3 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
3 Tablespoons Water
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix all cake ingredients together. It will be very thick, not at all the consistency of cake batter. Take a mini muffin tin and spray very well with some sort of cooking spray. Fill muffin tins about half way. This makes about 4 dozenish. Bake for 12 minutes.
When they’re done, just turn muffin tin over onto a towel or rack and shake the tin.
While they’re cooking you can make the glaze. Sift the flour, don’t sift the flour. Up to you. I didn’t and the glaze was still smooth and delicious. For easy glazing, you can just pick up the muffin/cupcake by the bottom and dip into glaze fully coating the top. Let the glaze harden before fully enjoying or storing.
My next plan on these is to experiment with different flavors. Maybe strawberry explosions.
