Now that I am finally back on my feet and able to do for myself, I decided it was time to finally try this new cupcake recipe which was calling to me. I like cupcakes better than cakes sometimes because it is easier to share the leftovers. Also you can bring out a plate of cupcakes at Kiddush Shabbos afternoon with new guests and no one knows that you served the same thing for dessert at dinner.
I don't know why this particular recipe called to me so much since there isn't any chocolate anywhere in it. Maybe it is that the cupcakes are filled. I love the idea of surprising my guests so hidden treats inside make me smile.
I did not read the recipe well in advance so needed a last minute trip to the store to get the cake mix. I have yet to find a parve white cake mix so I used our standard golden yellow cake mix. The texture of the cupcake turned out even better than usual. I think it was because I beat it more.
I added the blackberry on top to give a hint at the hidden surprise inside.
