Al Swearingen Cupcakes?

Did you watch Deadwood? We did, and we love its Shakespearean patter interspersed with lots of F-bombs. One of our favorite things is the weird way Al Swearingen, one of the main characters, always calls for canned peaches during important or celebratory moments. It’s just funny. I decided to make some cupcakes based on that little quirk of his.




Duncan Hines “Perfect Size” yellow cake mix

1 egg

2 Tbs butter, softened

1 can sliced peaches



Preheat oven to 300.

Throw out the grody powdered frosting mix, but dump the yellow cake mix into a bowl. Add the egg, the entire contents of of the can of peaches, and the softened butter. Mix well with a fork. It should make a nice pancakey batter- maybe a little thicker.

It should fill 12 cupcake cups or a 12-hole muffin pan.

Bake for 35 minutes.

After that, just eat ‘em! I like mine kinda sloppy. You can probably cook them for a couple of minutes longer to get a more solid cake.
