  • Step 1

    These black cupcakes are made from Jiffy mix with 1/2 teaspoon of apple pie spice added. Jiffy mix costs about 60 cents and it is actually quite tasty. A mix makes about 8 cupcakes. The mix is recession proof and I like that it only makes a few cupcakes. It's hard to eat a dozen cupcakes, but eight I can manage. And if you've never had Jiffy cornbread, you're missing out. It's pretty damn tasty. (It does contain animal lard. Sorry, vegetarians.)

    Step 2

    I wanted to make black cake. I used black gel dye to color the batter. It takes a lot of dye to make cake black. I added 1/2 teaspoon of apple pie spice to give the cupcake at little something extra. Apple pie spice give the cake an "autumn" taste.

Chocolate would require less food dye but as it was discussed in a baking community, some people do not like chocolate cake (gasp!). I do, but I wanted to create a cake that was "black" but not chocolate.
