Prepare Today Homemade- Cupcakes with Beans

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
With 5 kids, birthdays seem to happen quite a bit at our house.  My son's birthday was this past weekend and besides his cake, he needed cupcakes to share with his class.  I thought this would be a perfect time to use food storage. (they will never know, hehe)  I substituted white beans for the oil called for in the boxed cake mix that I used.  (white beans for yellow cake, black beans for chocolate cake)

 I followed the cake mix exactly like it says on the cake mix box except for the oil.  My cake mix called for 1/3 C oil and I simply added 1/3 C pureed white beans instead.  They bake up just as moist and fluffy as oil baked cupcakes.

My son wanted a Lego birthday and I found a Lego chocolate mold so we made Lego pieces to sit on top of the cupcakes.  After melting the chocolate I thought if I hadn't used the microwave to melt the chocolate I could have used my Saratoga Jacks thermal cooker as a double boiler and melted the chocolate that way.  Why do I always think of these things after??
