Cupcake Surprise


Monday- 5 miles, 9:22 pace + ab workout

I ran 2 miles then did 5 min of abs, ran 3 miles then 10 min of abs. I don’t know why, but this has really helped me break up the monotony of treadmill running. I can’t wait for nicer weather to get more runs outside.

Oreo Cupcakes

I made some Oreo cupcakes for Easter for the my in-laws. I love baking and making something look delicious. The recipe is super easy, I got it from the recipe book Josh got me for my Birthday last year, “101 Cupcake Recipes.”

1 chocolate cake mix

3 eggs

1 cup sour cream

18-24 Oreo cookies

Blend the cake mix, eggs, and sour cream together. Fill cupcake pan 1/4 with batter, then place an Oreo and push it down a bit. Fill the rest of the pan 3/4 full with batter. Bake for 12-18 min or until a toothpick comes out clean from the middle.

Top with cream cheese or butter cream frosting. * I mixed the frosting with more Oreo and topped with with half an Oreo.

Chocolate or vanilla cake fan?

Do you usually workout the day after a Holiday?

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
