  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, pudding mix, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; add to dry ingredients and mix until blended.
  2. Fill paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 375° until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean, 18-22 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Add food colouring to frosting if desired; frost cupcakes and decorate with sprinkles.
