Neapolitan Cupcakes

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!  These cupcakes are a special treat that my girls and I made last night.  They are simply wonderful.  What a great way to get everything you like all in one...cake, brownie, and frosting.  Yummy!!  (Makes approx. 30 cupcakes)



Brownie Layer:
  • 1 (19.5 ounce) package brownie mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water
Cake Layer:
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package strawberry cake mix 
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 3 egg whites
Topping and Other needs:
  • 1 can vanilla cake frosting
  • sprinkles or other decor
  • cupcake papers
  • non-stick spray
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Stir together the brownie layer ingredients, set aside.
  3. Mix the cake ingredients together on medium speed for 2 minutes, set aside.
  4. Spoon the brownie batter into lightly greased cupcake papers in a muffin pan, filling each cup 1/3 full. Spoon the cake batter over the brownie batter, until papers are each 3/4 full.
  5. Bake until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 20 minutes.
  6. After cooling completely, top with frosting and sprinkles or other decor.
