Besides, I wanted to share this easy, yummy Tropical Cupcake recipe with you.
There are only three ingredients in the cake part:
1 store-bought cake mix - orange flavored. (If you can't find orange, add some orange extract to a yellow cake mix.)
1 can crushed pineapple, not drained
Whip the cake mix and the eggs together. Lower the mixer speed and add the pineapple, juice and all. Beat gently until well combined.
Bake according to the cake box directions. They are done when toothpick clean.
These are delish without icing, because they are moist and very sweet. However, here in the Ballpark, we rarely let a cupcake sit naked. I frosted these with a cream cheese icing, but a buttercream icing is just as tasty.
I dotted these with M&Ms because we had them for Easter, but you can leave them plain, or sprinkle with any topping you'd like. Coconut folded into the frosting would be good as well, adding another tropical element to this treat.
These are a perfect Spring dessert. Goodbye snow, hello tulipz!
I know the word tulipz does not end in Z, but...well, you know, refer to Sentence One.
Thanks to all who stopped by the Ballpark this month! I appreciate every visitor, and I hope you were blessed or entertained every time you popped in. (If not, let me know, and I'll try to up my game.)
