STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE CUPCAKES Recipe

Ingredients

For the Cupcakes:

  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup yogurt( I used Greek)
  • ½ cup of unsalted butter,melted
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tsp of vanilla extract

For the Strawberry filling:

  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp of orange juice or Water
  • 2 cups of fresh strawberries,finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp of corn starch

Whipped Cream:

  • 1-1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbsp confectioner sugar

Directions

For strawberry mixture:
In a small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch In the water or orange juice and set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine the strawberries and sugar. Cook over medium high heat and bring to a boil stirring often until the sugar dissolves. Add the cornstarch mixture and cook for 1 more minute, allow to cool completely.
For the cupcakes:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper or silicone liners. In a small bowl, mix together the flour,baking soda,salt and baking powder. Set aside. In a mixing bowl fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the sugar and butter. Add the yogurt,vanilla,egg whites and cream together until you get a smooth mixture. Add the dry ingredients and with the speed on low mix together, slowly adding the milk and mix everything to combine. Scoop the batter into your lined muffin tin, make sure it’s only filled ¾ of the way up because they will rise. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for about 45 minutes before frosting.
For the whipped cream:
Make the whipped topping by whisking together the heavy cream, vanilla and granulated sugar until stiff peaks form.
Filling:
Using a sharp knife, melon baller or small ice cream scoop, scoop out the center of each cupcake. Fill with about 1 Tbsp of the strawberry mixture and pipe with some of the whipped cream. Top each cupcake with either a slice of strawberry or leave them as it is!

Enjoy!!
