  • 3Add eggs, water, oil, and yogurt
  • 4Using mixer beat on medium speed until all is well blended
  • 5Fill paper liners half way with batter
  • 6Add one nice size teaspoon of pie filling to each, then top off with remaining cake batter
  • 7Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until done. (cherries will sink into cupcakes but not totally disappear)
  • 8Allow cupcakes to cool completely
  • 9Remove cupcakes and frost as desired.
  • 10Fluffy cherry almond frosting. Add heaping spoons of cherry pie filling juice to fluffy icing in a bowl.
  • 11Stir until well blended, tasting for desired cherry flavor, and added more filling as needed)
  • 12Add almond extract and stir till blended.
  • 13I also topped some with a fudge frosting
  • 14And since the tops sink in a bit, i scooped a bit of the cake out of the center of some cupcakes and filled with additional pie filling as the topping
