    eggs

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • Devil’s Food Cake Mix

  • 1

    teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F and line pans with cupcake liners. Puree raspberry pie filling with sour cream in blender. In large bowl, lightly beat eggs with vanilla and add raspberry/sour cream mixture. Add cake mix, cinnamon, and baking soda. (For easy mixing, sift cake mix before adding.) Fill liners ¾ full and bake for 12 to 14 minutes. (These bake faster than other cupcakes, be careful!)

Pipe onto cooled cupcakes and top with fresh raspberries or chocolate pieces.
