Do you ever watch Food Network's "Good Eats"? We do and we love it! Alton made cup cakes a week or so ago...not sure when since we DVR it. But anyways, I LOVED the idea of using actual cups to bake cupcakes--plus it was an excuse to keep a set of mugs I adore, but really couldn't justify keeping with all of our Fiestaware mugs. But now I do! They're a great shape and it was delicious.
If I'd been true to Alton, I would have made a cake and frosting from scratch. Maybe later...a mix and tub of frosting created these yummy treats for Mom's last evening in Biloxi. You can use any cup you deem oven-worthy--fill it 2/3 full and bake till done. These are larger cups, so it took about 27 minutes at 350 degrees. Grease the cups a bit so they come out, but you can eat them right out of the cup.
Yum!!!! More on Mom's visit later.
