TROPICAL CUPCAKES WITH PINEAPPLE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

  • I am always looking for new recipes for my 9-year-old granddaughter to try. She has been baking with cake mix for years and has started moving into more complicated recipes in the last couple of years. This sounds perfect for her to try.

  • 1 Duncan Hines Pineapple Supreme cake mix
  • 1 pkg. (3.9 oz.) Coconut Cream Instant Pudding
  • 1 (8 oz.) can of crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) tub of Pineapple Spreadable Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 pkg. (16 oz.) powdered sugar (about 4 cups)
  • 1 cup thawed Whipped Topping
  • toasted coconut for topping (if desired)

  • Prepare cake batter according to package and blend dry pudding mix into batter. Fold in pineapple. Spooning batter into prepared muffin cups. Bake as directed on package for 24 cupcakes. Cool.
  • Meanwhile, beat cream cheese and butter in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Gradually beat in sugar. Whisk in whipped topping. Spoon frosting into small freezer-weight resealable plastic bag; seal bag (or use a cake decorating bag with tip). Cut small corner off bottom of bag and insert tip.
  • Frost cupcakes with frosting. Sprinkle with toasted coconut.
