As most of you already know on special occasions I sometimes receive products to test and enjoy before the items are made available in the stores. This time I was given a box of Betty Crocker Fun da-middles, the first boxed-cupcake mix of its kind, which is expected to hits shelves later this year! Combining cake mix and filling pouch in ONE BOX, Fun da-middles have a special creamy filling that bakes inside the cupcake. Available in three delicious flavors, Vanilla Cake with Creamy Chocolate Filling, Chocolate Cake with Creamy Vanilla Filling, and Vanilla Cake with Creamy Vanilla Filling, everyone is sure to have a favorite! PLUS, because the frosting is on the inside, Fun da-middles are portable, easy to pack in lunches, and children can take the fun treat everywhere they go!
Betty Crocker, through MyBlogSpark, sent me a sample of Betty Crocker Fun da-middles yellow cupcake mix with creamy vanilla filing. All I needed to complete the ingredients to be able to make the cupcakes was 2 eggs, 3/4 water, 1/3 cup of oil, and 12 baking cups. I began by preheating my oven to 325 (used nonstick pan) and lining the cupcake pan with the 12 paper baking cups.
Then I emptied the cupcake mix into my Kitchen Aid mixer, added the other ingredients, and beat the contents on low speed for 30 seconds. Per directions, I turned up the speed on medium for 2 minutes and scraped the bowl occasionally to get all the ingredients blended together.
Next I filled each cup 1/3 of the way full with batter, making sure the batter completely covered the bottom and saved the remaining batter for later.
This step was a little tricky, because you have to squeeze the filling pouch, dividing it equally among the 12 cupcakes making sure the filling is in the center of each of them and no filling touches the sides.
Last step prior to baking the cupcakes is to evenly distribute the reserved batter among the 12 cupcakes, making sure the filling is completely covered.
Then your all set to pop the pan into the oven and bake for 24 to 29 minutes or until the tops are light golden brown.
4 easy steps and you have delicious yummy cupcakes ready to eat! There is no need to frost them!
HOWEVER, in my opinion, part of the fun of making cupcakes is to decorate them, so I frosted each one with Betty Crocker Lemon Frosting and used yellow plus white jelly beans to make them look like Bread and Butter Corn! Lastly, I topped each one with a Starburst yellow candy to resemble a pat of butter on the corn. I got the idea from Woman’s Day Magazine and think the cupcakes would be perfect to serve at a BBQ or for the upcoming 4th Of July holiday!
