Coca Cola Cupcakes

Writing the title of this post just now made me wonder - do people still say "Coca Cola" ?  I always call it Coke...but I thought if I called these Coke Cupcakes you maaaaaay get the wrong idea.  So~ Coca Cola Cupcakes they will be! 

I finished my 21 day fast!  And what better way to celebrate than with cupcakes.  I didn't have ingredients handy for many of the cupcakes on my to-bake list, so I had to improvise with what I had.  The result- yummo!  I enjoyed this cupcake, it's very very light, which is important in a January cupcake isn't it though?

Please do follow the link to the recipe I adapted from - Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper cupcakes.  It looks absolutely wonderful!

Coca Cola Cupcakes

1 box chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 stick melted butter
2 eggs
1 cup Coca Cola
1 tsp cherry extract

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix all ingredients together well.  Pour into prepared, lined, muffin pan and bake for 15 minutes.  Tops will spring back when lightly touched.  Place on cooling rack until completely cool and frost with your favorite frosting.  I used a fat free meringue, recipe to follow soon!

  5. I always call it coke too. Never Coca-Cola, but I can see how calling them Coke Cupcakes would give people the wrong, idea, lol. The cupcakes look good! Do you think diet soda could be substituted to save on a bit of calories?
