These cupcakes are easy to make. The cream cheese center is always a surprise and easy to make changes to. In fact I made lots of changes to the recipe and it turned out great.

How to Make Filled Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix box cake according to directions. (For this recipe I substituted orange juice for the water called for in the directions).
  2. Combine the cream cheese, egg, sugar and vanilla.
  3. Place paper baking cups in the muffin tins. Put a small amount of batter in each cup (around 1 tablespoon), then put a good tablespoon of the cream cheese batter next. Finally fill approximately 2/3 full with chocolate batter.
  4. Bake @ 350 degrees for approximately 15-20 minutes
  5. While cupcakes are baking, make frosting.
  6. Combine flour and milk. Cook until thick and cool completely. (For this recipe I substituted fresh orange juice for the milk).
  7. When the above mixture is cool, add the butter, shortening, sugar and vanilla and mix until smooth. This step takes a while, so be patient. (For this recipe I addded 1 teaspoon of Grand Mariner for the vanilla and grated orange peel from one orange).
  8. Enjoy.
