Baking Instructions

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. 2. In a large bowl, mix together the cake and pudding mixes, sour cream, oil, beaten eggs, and vanilla. In a small bowl, combine instant espresso granules and warm water, stirring until dissolved. Add espresso mixture to the cake batter and stir until fully incorporated.
  3. 3. Using a large cookie scoop, distribute the batter between 24 muffin wells; about 3 tablespoons of batter.
  4. 4. Measure .4 ounce balls of cookie dough (about 1 teaspoon) and drop a ball of dough into each cupcake. Push down to make sure the batter covers the cookie dough.
  5. 5. Bake in preheated oven for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick entered into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
  6. 6. Remove cupcakes from muffin tins and allow to fully cool on a wire rack. Once cupcakes are cool, prepare your frosting

I mix in 5 tsp of milk (preferably whole milk) to my cake and bread mixes once all the ingredients are mixed together. It makes the end product super moist.
