Scrumptious Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes

Posted by Ishi

After posting my pick of Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes, a lot of you asked for the recipe so I thought I'd post it. This cupcake is impressive!

 

 

Scrumptious Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes

Ingredients

  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package white cake mix
  • 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored gelatin mix
  • 1 cup mashed fresh strawberries (1 and 1/2 c. whole=1 c. mashed)
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 4 eggs

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, stir together cake mix and gelatin mix.
  2. Make a well in the center and pour in mashed strawberries, oil, milk and eggs.
  3. Beat on low speed until blended. Scrape bowl and beat 2 minutes on medium speed.
  4. Pour batter into prepared cupcake pans.
  5. Bake at 350 for 15-20 min or until cupcakes are done.
  6. For the lemon cream cheese frosting, I used the recipe here on CakeCentral called Decorator's Cream Cheese Frosting by azeboi2005 and added the juice from 1/2 a large lemon for the perfect tartness. Top each cupcake with a slice of strawberry and lemon zest. Voila!

Sounds great, I look forward to trying these when I find some time :)
I'm thinking about making a cake instead of cupcakes. What do u think? Would the icing hold up?
Can this be used for a cake too?
