You may have noticed that I have a fondness for cupcakes. They’re small, cute, versatile, delicious, little gems of pure baked happiness! For Mother’s Day, I decided to try a new cupcake recipe. I am delighted that this Chocolate Cherry Coca Cola Cupcake recipe turned out to be even better than I had anticipated. I hope you’ll try them, because they are truly delicious!
1 package chocolate cake mix (I used Betty Crocker Moist Supreme Devils Food)
Eggs and oil per cake mix instructions
1 can Coca Cola
1 8 ounce jar maraschino cherries in syrup
1 21 ounce can cherry pie filling, lightly drained
Your favorite Butter Cream Frosting Recipe plus 2 tablespoons maraschino cherry syrup or 2 tubs of cream cheese frosting with 2 tablespoons of maraschino cherry syrup whipped into it.
How to make them:
Prepare cake mix according to package directions, except substitute coca cola for water.
Add maraschino cherry syrup and cherry pie filling. Mix on low speed until combined.
Line muffin cups with paper baking cups. Pour batter into cups, almost to the top (these cupcakes don’t rise a lot) and bake according to directions for cupcakes.
Cool completely, frost with cherry frosting and top each cupcake with a maraschino cherry.
Recipe yields approximately 30 cupcakes.
Oh how I love thee…Chocolate Cherry Coca Cola Cupcake!
