Strawberry Cheese Cupcake


There are so many pending post well actually post is not written just that I have so many pictures of cakes, dessert etc.... which is just pilling up in various map. Just that I have to edit them , watermark and write a post and recipe.
Well I made these, as I think for a year shyama has been asking me when are you going to make that strawberry cup cake which taste like Ben and Jerry Cheese ice cream. That is what she says about these cupcakes.
I always reply to her it is not strawberry season  etc..... so as it has been strawberry season here I made these last month.
I have posted these in my blog before, but then that time even thought they were delicious they were not looking that good as I over filled them and wanted to make the icing less sweeter so I didn't add that much sugar so they just stayed a but liquid, but this time I did enough powdered sugar so that the icing was thick and I could easily pipe them.

Ingridients:

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar ( I added only half of this sugar as i didn't want the cake to be tto sweet)
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking Soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter milk
6 tbsp unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
2 eggs slightly beaten
1 tsp or less red food colouring ( optional)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup fresh strawberries, cleaned and cut into small pieces



For the frosting.
1/2 cup of butter (1 stick), room temperature
8 oz of Philly cream cheese (1 package), room temperature
2 - 3 cups of powdered sugar
Few tbsp of strawberry syrup from Monin.

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar baking powder, baking soda, salt and set aside.
2. In a another bowl, mix , buttermilk, melted butter,eggs and vanilla essence.
Add liguid ingridients to dry indridients and beat well with a wooden spoon.
Fold in the strawberries.
3. Spoon batter into cupcake paper, filling cups about 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes or untill a tester inserted and it come out clean.
Remove from the oven and cool them before you frost.

For the frosting:

1 With an electric mixer, mix the butter and cream cheese together, about 3 minutes on medium speed until very smooth. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl to ensure even mixing.

2 Add the strawberry syrup and mix. Slowly add the powdered sugar. Keep adding until you get to desired sweetness.

3 Either spread on with a blunt knife or spatula, or spoon into a piping bag to decorate your cake or cupcake.
