Key Lime Pie Cupcakes

 Today I decided to make Key Lime Pie Cupcakes. They were the hardest thing I've ever made. Maybe because I've never filled cupcakes before and didnt have a handy tool to help me along. I eventually decided to use a potatoe peeler to scrap out the cupcake, fill it, and replace.  They turned out pretty yummy!

Here's the recipe.

1 tsp lime zest
2 tbs lime jce
1 lg egg
3 lg egg yolks
1 white cake mix
1 pkg (3oz)vanilla instant pudding
1 1/4 c water
1/3 cup oil
1 tsp coconut flavoring
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup key lime jce
2 (8oz) pkg cream cheese
1/2 stick of butter
2 lg spoonfuls of blackberry/blueberry jam (I used blueberry)
powdered sugar 3 to 4 cups

Put the whole egg and yolks, cakemix, pudding(dry),water, oil, coconut flavoring, zest, 2tablespoons juice. mix for 2 to 3 min. spoon into cupcake liners. bake app 15 to 18 min at 350. cool 5 min.

make the filling of sweentened condensed milk and lime juice. stir until thickened and squeeze some into each cupcake from the top. (I did this by peeling back a section of the cupake with he end of a potatoe peeler and then squirting the filling in from a ziploc bag).cool

prepare the cream cheese frosting. add the jam to your liking. spread on top.


  1. *drool* Might just have to try that, but what is cake mix exactly?

  2. cake mix is a premade, prepackaged mixture of all of the dry ingredients you need to make your basic cake. They come a variety of flavors- chocolate,yellow, white,etc. Use white for this one, and if you can't find it yellow would be the best subsitute.
