This cupcake recipe is a time-saving desset dream. It starts with boxed pound cake mix and calls for only five ingredients, including what you need for the Browned Butter Frosting. It's party ready and ideal for school functions that call for dozens of cupcakes.

How to Make It

Prepare 1 (16-oz.) package pound cake mix according to package directions. Place 24 paper baking cups in muffin pans; spoon batter evenly into paper cups, filling two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center of cupcake comes out clean. Remove cupcakes from pans, and let cool completely on wire racks. Spread cupcakes evenly with Browned Butter Frosting; garnish with fresh mint leaves and edible violas, if desired.

The frosting recipe is at the bottom of the Ingredients list, highlighted in red, all you have to do is click on it. A lot of recipes I have seen have highlighted areas to get the additional recipe or part needed, and also you can click on a certain highlighted ingredient to see what the heck it is, good for someone like me that doesn't understand half the stuff listed in ingredients

I was getting all excited about a recipe for pound cake that you can make in cupcake tins, then, I read the recipe and it uses a pound cake mix? What is up with that?
