Ingredients

  • 3 cups Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk or water
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • Favorite frosting, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups, or grease and flour muffin cups.
  • 2
    Beat all ingredients except Frosting in large bowl on low speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on medium speed 4 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Fill muffin cups about 1/2 full.
  • 3
    Bake about 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately remove from pan; cool. Frost.

  • If only one 12-cup muffin pan is available, refrigerate the remaining batter while baking the first 12 cupcakes.
  • For a quick and fluffy frosting, stir a little caramel topping into whipped topping. Decorate with chopped peanuts or miniature chocolate chips.
  • Stir 1/4 cup miniature chocolate chips into the cupcake batter for chocolate chip cupcakes. Stir a drop or two of mint extract into your favorite frosting.
  • No time to frost? Simply dust these sweet treats with baking cocoa. Or sprinkle with chocolate chips before baking.
