Universal Batter for Cupcakes?

DuffyH | Jun 13, 201507:51 PM     16

With the GrandPups here for a few weeks, I'm going to want to make a few desserts, and cupcakes are perfect, what with no need for plates and utensils.

I'm no baker, so want easy, but still good. I tried a Crazy Chocolate Cake a while back and thought it was pretty sad, so don't think that's the one for me. And I'm one who loves Betty's SuperMoist Devil's Food Cake Mix for my default cake, so you know I don't have the highest standards.

I don't want to make ordinary white or yellow cupcakes. nor do I want to make pound cake, bundt cake or chiffon cake, which I'm seeing a lot of in my cookbooks and online. Is there a nice general cake recipe that will allow me to add lemon or other flavors as the mood strikes?

I know I can add flavor with icing, but I'd like to have the flavor in the cake, if possible.
