2 Ingredient Cupcakes, Easy Peasy Ones.


Good Saturday evening everyone! I feel like a chicken with my head cut off running all over the place this week. Easter preparations and activites have kept me so busy these past days, but I have been enjoying it.

Today I had my first ever photo session with my friend. It could not have gone better, the lighting was perfect and the day was simply gorgeous. It sure helps when you are photographing a beautiful girl. I'll be sharing some pictures from the shoot in a post in the upcoming week. I adore taking photos of people, I feel better being behind the camera.

These cupcakes were some of the best I have had in a long time. I whipped this recipe up and couldn't believe I hadn't tried this sooner. The brownie mix swirled in the cake mix batter
makes these so tasty. It is hard to believe this recipe only has 2 ingredients, I love simple things.




Double Boxed Cupcakes
Ingredients:
1 yellow cake mix (or any kind would work)
1 brownie mix, with chunks
DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cake mix according to directions. In a another bowl prepare brownie mix according to directions. Grease 2 muffins pans. Fill pans 3/4 full with yellow cake mix batter. Drop a heaping tablespoonful of brownie mix on top of the cake batter in each muffin tin. Swirl with knife. Bake for 20 minutes or until middle is done. Do not overbake.

Lewis Lewis Lewis. Some days he drives me so mad and other days I feel so happy that he is mine. I have always adored Labs. Lew is my first purebred Lab. And I will have to say I do not adore them as much as I did. Labs are stubborn. Strong willed. Mouthy. Rolly polly. Has a mind of their own. Chews things up endlessly. Gets in the trash. And they make it impossible to catch them. I love Labs but look at them with a realstic view now.




Happy Easter everyone! I hope it is filled with lots of fun and good food. I am hoping for a beautiful sunny day!
