Super cute Watermelon Cupcakes


Here is the recipe ~ from the original Pin by Gina

You can use any yellow cake recipe and just add mini chocolate chips and food coloring.
Chocolate chip cake
2 2/3 flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1/2 water
1/2 oil

1 Tbs vanilla
A couple of handfuls of mini chocolate chips

Whisk dry ingredients together make a well.
Whisk wet ingredients together.
Slowly poor wet mixture into dry while whisking.
Stir in food coloring to make the perfect pink watermelon color. I used a rose color with a small amount of yellow.
Poor into cupcake tins. Bake at 350 for about 23 minutes. Top with your favorite buttercream frosting.
For coloring, I used lead green and a bit of yellow.

    If you use white cake mix and add one packet of watermelon jello, it tastes just like watermelon! I’ve been doing it for years and no one can figure out how I made it taste like that haha 🙂

  14. Sandy Mertz says:

    You have “1/2 water, 1/2 oil” listed in the ingredients. Is that “cup” & are both of those in addition to the milk? Seems like a lot of liquid. Or are the water & oil used in place of the 1 cup of milk? I’d like to make these, but I’m worried about messing them up b/c I’m not sure about the measurements. Thanks.

    You can add watermelon flavoured Jello mix, and you will actually have watermelon-flavoured cupcakes. You can do this with any flavour of Jello =D

  16. love it

  17. How many cupcakes does this make ?

    Has anyone tried substituting dry watermelon jello in place of some of the sugar for watermelon flavor cupcakes?
