I'm a teenage farm girl who likes cooking and baking. These cupcakes are a favorite of mine.—Christine Sohm, Newton, Ontario

Ingredients

  • 1 package white cake mix (regular size)
  • 1/4 cup raspberry pie filling
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/3 cup 2% milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • Fresh raspberries and decorative sprinkles, optional

Directions

  1. Prepare cake batter mix according to package directions for cupcakes. Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Drop 1/2 teaspoon of pie filling in the center of each; cut through batter with a knife to swirl.
  2. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. In a large bowl, beat shortening until fluffy. Add the milk, vanilla, salt; gradually add confectioners' sugar; beat until smooth. Frost cupcakes. Garnish with raspberries and sprinkles if desired.
