    SouthernBell2627's Note:

    This recipe is from the "Cake Mix Doctor" book. The book is authored by Anne Bryn. Very quick and simple to make. Great for those that do not have the time to "slave" over a hot stove all day. Enjoy!

      Yummy! I made this recipe but added about 6 Tbsp of raspberry jam and a handful of fresh raspberries. I iced it with a chocolate icing. It really amped up the flavor. Definitely going to make again.

      LOVE this recipe. Made 2 dozen Valentine cupcakes out of it this week and they turned out perfectly. Super easy but tastes like you spent hours in front of the stove. A keeper!
