I know that typically Nutmeg is a spice that’s meant to kind of hang out in the background, but it’s my ultimate favorite holiday spice..with it’s sweet and warm flavor! So I just couldn’t resist giving it the attention it deserves.
It needed a chance to be showcased as the star of the show for once in it’s life! And let me say..it’s performance did not disappoint! These are ridiculously simple, yet the flavor is off the charts! You must give this one a try, and let Nutmeg be front and center at your table. You’ll love them!
What you’ll need:
1 box of White cake mix 1 container of vanilla frosting 1 vanilla pudding cup (not 2 as shown) 1 tbsp. Nutmeg (to add to the batter) 1 tsp. Nutmeg (to add to the frosting)
I dusted the finished product with some freshly grated Nutmeg (optional)
Moist, scrumptious & festive!!
Prepare the cake mix batter and stir in the pudding cup and the Nutmeg.
Bake up the cupcakes and set them aside to cool.
Take a moment to intoxicate yourself with the amazing aroma these fill your kitchen with!
In a medium bowl, mix the frosting together with the rest of the Nutmeg, and frost the cupcakes.
That’s all folks!
Time to dig in..and savor the creaminess that the pudding adds to the sweet/spicy Nutmeg flavor!
I hope you love these as much as I do! ~Enjoy!!
Not a fan of frosting? These are fabulous even without it!!
