Chocolate Cherry Coke Cupcakes
This is a super simple recipe not completely made from scratch, i cheated this time by using a box mix, but i changed it up a bit to make something different. enjoy!
1 box of devil's food cake mix (brand doesn't matter just get whats on sale)
12oz cherry coke (1 can)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
5oz of cherries (i used half of a 10 oz jar)
Add cinnamon to cake mix mix well, stir in coke, chop cherries into small pieces and add to mix.
when filling cupcake liners only fill halfway because these are gonna rise good, maybe because of the soda but i don't know the science behind it.
bake 21-23 minutes until tooth pick comes out clean.
i used basic vanilla icing on some and i added 2 tbls of coca powder to the vanilla icing to make a chocolatey icing on some of the other cupcakes and i think the chocolate worked better with this cupcake.
if you want to make them pretty add a whole cherry on top like in the pictures.
