These cute little cupcakes will please any crowd.
I whipped these strawberry cupcakes up for my bible study friends.
Plus they have a surprise strawberry center.
1 box yellow cake mix
1c fresh strawberries
2 tbsp strawberry yogurt
4c powdered sugar
1stick butter (room temperature)
1tsp vanilla extract
1 Prepare cake mix as directed on box. In each cupcake liner, fill 1/3 with cake mix, then add about 1tbsp of strawberry puree on top. Then add another dollop of cake mix. (Sort of like a sandwich, making sure the puree is in the middle and covered by cake mix)
(Hint: I like to bake my cupcakes at least 2-3 minutes less than directed to keep them moist and fluffy)
2. While cupcakes are baking, place fresh strawberries and yogurt in a blender to puree.
3. In a large bowl combine powdered sugar, butter, vanilla extract, and 1/4c of pureed strawberries.
Mix well with a stand mixer or hand mixer until combined. Making sure there are no lumps. You might need to add a tad more of the puree just to make it the right consistancy. You dont want to add to much and make it runny.
4. Allow cupcakes to cool completely before icing. Drizzle some of the remaining strawberry puree over the icing.
