Ingredients

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • ½ cup greek yogurt (or sour cream)
  • cup oil
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 eggs

Frosting

  • ½ cup butter softened
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar
  • optional: sprinkles

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 and fill muffin tins with cupcake liners.
  • Sift cake mix into a medium bowl. In a larger bowl combine, greek yogurt (or sour cream), oil, buttermilk, vanilla, and eggs and whisk until smooth. Add cake mix and mix until smooth. 
  • Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full and bake 13-18 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • After cupcakes have cooled completely, cream the butter for two minutes in a large bowl. Add vanilla and heavy cream and mix until smooth. Mix in powdered sugar one cup at a time until desired consistency is reached (**if piping the frosting, double the frosting recipe and look for a slightly stiffer consistency) Spread or pipe frosting onto cupcakes. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
