  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 1/4 cups water

  • Topping:
  • 1 can Duncan Hines cream cheese frosting (or two cans if you love a lot of frosting!)
  • 4 graham crackers crushed
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup mini or regular sized mashmallows.

Baking Instructions

  1. Using a handmixer on low combine cake mix, eggs, oil, powerderd sugar, and water according to the Duncan Hines Red Velvet cake mix package. Add 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips and mix lightly. Spoon cake batter into cupcake pans which are lined with cupcake liners. Fill each caupcake liner about ½ full. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until the tops of the cupcake spring back when touched. Remove from cupcakes from the oven and immediately place them on a drying rack to cool. When thoroughly cooled, top each cupcake with a generous amount of Duncan Hines cream cheese icing. Follow up with a sprinkle of finley crushed graham crackers, mini chocolate chips, and adorn with marshmallows.

center "humps" in cake

center "humps" in cake

my mom had this info back in the 70's from a decorating class she took. Back then she would use strips of towels that would fit around the outside of the cake pan. Wet it with cool water and wring it out . . . pin it in place around the outer edge of pan and bake. The reason for the "hump" is that the out edge bakes first and has time to settle leaving the inner "hump". No need to cut off the excess. Wilton makes these insulated strips that I have inherited from mom. Works every time!!!!!

greasing bake pans

greasing bake pans

To have your cakes, loafs and brownies come out of the pan easier and for a cleaner bottom, when preparing greased pans, do the following: 1. Grease and flour the sides only. 2. Lightly grease the bottom of the pan. 3. Line the bottom of the pan with waxed paper (much cheaper than parchment paper). Simply trace out the bottom of the pan on waxed paper with a pencil and cut out. When the cake is slightly cooled, invert and peel off the waxed paper. Perfect each time!
