You may be wondering what happened to the "Pie Day!" feature. Well, for one thing, Babushka now has a full time day job and does not have time to bake. Secondly, Babushka is really trying to adopt a healthy lifestyle and not eat stuff like home-baked pie, cake and bread.
In the meantime, other family members who lack Babushka's amazing baking skills still want to enjoy freshly baked snacks.
Easy Streusel Cupcakes.
1 package Duncan HinesTM yellow cake cupcake mix (It's really the same as the cake mix, but only exactly enough to make 1 dozen cupcakes).
Preheat oven to 350.
Follow the instructions on the box to make the batter.
Line cupcake baking tray with cupcake papers. Pour 1/4 c. of batter into each opening.
1/2 c. unbleached enriched flour
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. chopped walnuts or pecans
2 Tbsp. margarine
1 tsp. cinnamon
Combine flour, brown sugar, nuts and cinnamon. Cut margarine into the mix with a pastry cutter until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
Sprinkle the streusel topping over the cupcakes.
Bake for 25 minutes.
So easy, even a 5-year-old child or a 62-year-old man can make it!
