Lemon Cupcakes

In honor of my Mom’s birthday, I’m posting one of her favorite recipes that she made when I was growing up. This would be a great dessert for a Baby or Wedding Shower if you’re looking for something different to make. The pudding that we use is the type you would have in a Lemon Meringue Pie. This particular pudding mix needs to be cooked on the stove.

Happy Birthday Mom! I love you!


1 box lemon cake mix
1 box (2.75 oz.) lemon pudding and pie filling (not instant)
*additional ingredients needed for the cake mix and pie filling (be sure to check the boxes)
confectioner’s sugar


1. Preheat the oven as directed on the cake box. Line 22 muffin cups with cupcake liners. (The cake mix states that it makes 24 cupcakes. I wanted the cupcakes to be a little larger so I made 22.) Set the pans aside.

2. Prepare the cake batter as directed on the cake box. Pour the batter into 22 cupcake liners evenly. Bake as directed for cup cakes. When the cupcakes are done, remove each one from the pan and cool on a wire rack.

3. Cook the lemon filling according to the package directions. Set the filling aside to cool.

4. When the cupcakes are completely cooled, use a sharp paring knife to cut the tops off as shown. Fill the cupcake with the warm filling. Press the cake top in the filling. Make sure it’s not on crooked. The filling will thicken as it cools. Dust the cupcakes with confectioner’s sugar.

Store the cupcakes (covered) at room temperature.
