I DID Make Something!

I was going to post this earlier and then I thought I wouldn't because I don't really want to be a foodie blog but then I've been thinking about these cupcakes ALL day long and just had, had, had to share them.


The way I make them is NOT vegan nor gluten-free BUT they can very easily be turned into vegan or gluten-free and I will tell you how!

For Vegan and and Regular cupcakes you will need:

Cherrybrook Kitchen Chocolate Cake - This is VERY important for the VEGAN recipe

Vegetable Oil


Favorite chocolate chips

Favorite chocolate syrup

1 package Simple Organics Vegan Chocolate Pudding

1/2 cup Sour Cream (nix in the Vegan version, natch)

1. Follow the instructions on the Cherrybrook Kitchen cake package

2.Pour in a bunch of chocolate syrup

3. Pour in a bunch of chocolate chips

4. Dump the box of pudding mix in the bowl

5. Get that sour cream in there (remember - not vegan!)

6. Mix that mother all up, pour it in a bunch of cupcake cups, and cook 'em up for about 20 - 25 minutes

7. Slather some frosting (vegan frosting recipe here) on those puppies and eat up!

For Gluten-Free:

Your favorite gluten-free cake mix. I have adapted a gluten-free cake mix for this recipe so it won't taste all crumby and dry if you do use a gluten-free product (the secret is in the pudding, seriously).

1/2 cup sugar

4 extra large eggs room temperature

1/2 cup canola oil

3/4 C orange juice

1 Tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons good vanilla extract

Favorite chocolate chips

Favorite chocolate syrup

1/2 cup Sour Cream

1. DO NOT follow the instructions on the box for this one.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

3. Mix the eggs, oil, OJ, and vanilla extract together.

4. Mix the sugar, cake mix, and pudding package together

5. Now mix the dry stuff with the wet and stuff and beat for two minutes.

6. Pour in as much chocolate syrup and chocolate chips as you want. Mix in sour cream.

7. Pour batter in cupcake/muffin cups and cook for 20-25 minutes

8. Slather some gluten-free frosting on those puppies and eat up!


  1. i love a gluten-free tip!! i'm back off of the gluten in two and counting:) thank you.

  2. I did it for you!!!! I actually came upon the cherrybrook kitchen recipe by accident because i THOUGHT i bought the gluten-free package (which they do have - you should try) but i bought the dairy-free instead! oh well. i have no will power! I love cupcakes (I just ate two)!
