Incredibly easy, these Lemon Pudding Cupcakes are moist and delicious! Topped with a creamy, light lemon frosting, you'll love to sink your teeth into one of these cupcakes!

Ingredients:

For the cupcakes:

  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 package (2.9 oz) lemon pudding mix
  • 1 cup lemon lime soda
  • 3 large eggs

For the frosting:

  • 1 cup lemon pie filling (or this lemon curd)
  • 16 oz Cool Whip, thawed

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cupcake pan with paper cupcake liners. (I love these no fade liners!) Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the cake mix, pudding mix, oil, eggs, and lemon lime soda. Beat until light and fluffy (about two minutes).
  3. Using a large metal scoop (3 Tbsp), fill cupcake liners about 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes, removing from pan and allowing to cool completely before adding frosting.
  4. For the frosting, combine pie filling (or lemon curd) with thawed Cool Whip. Fold them together. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes, while cupcakes are baking and cooling.
  5. Using a cookie scoop, dollop the frosting onto the cooled cupcake. Store in refrigerator for up to 3 days, ENJOY!

    Question — the lemon cupcakes -/  in the frosting do u make the lemon pie filling  or just put one cup of the contents of the box.  Confused. 

  5. Kristen

    Yum!!! Is the pudding instant you use or regular pudding mix? Planning to make these this weekend!

  6. I love lemon desserts this time of year! The lemon curd in the frosting sounds so good!

  7. You had me at lemon. Then again at pudding. Love the simplicity of these sweet little cupcakes. The piped rosette swirl on top is seriously perfect too! 🙂

  8. I love how light and fluffy these cupcakes are with the pudding mix added in!  It’s my favorite way to make cupcakes and cakes from a mix too!

  9. I want to make these, but am wondering if I can use whipped heavy cream or do I need to use the Cool whip? 

  10. yum… you made such a wow recipe. I know to make whipped cream so  I am going to make this tomorrow only. I am sure my family will love to eat this  pudding.
