Cupcake Baking Tin
Medium Mixing Bowl
- 3 eggs
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- ½ cup sour cream
- ¾ cup milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- ½ cup dulce de leche warmed
- 15.25 ounces butter pecan cake mix (or caramel cake mix), 1 box
- 2 cups butter softened to room temperature
- 5 cups powdered sugar
- 13.4 ounces dulce de leche 1 can
- 2 Tablespoons vanilla
- ¼ cup dulce de leche for topping, (optional)
- ¼ cup toffee bits (optional topping)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line pans with cupcake liners.
In a large bowl mix together eggs, oil, sour cream, milk, vanilla and dulce de leche.
Add in the cake mix and stir until smooth.
Fill cupcake liners about 3/4 of the way full, then bake for 18-22 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the cupcake comes out clean.
Whip the butter on high for 4-5 minutes, stopping to scrape the bowl once or twice.
Reduce the speed to low and slowly add in the powdered sugar (you can add more or less depending on how thick you want your frosting).
Once the powdered sugar is all incorporated, add in the can of dulce de leche and vanilla.
Increase the speed to medium-high and whip until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes).
Top cupcakes with frosting.
Add a drizzle of dulce de leche and toffee bits on top.
