Its tíme for some sweet and tasty recípes. Thís tíme íts strawberry Cupcakes, we are completely addícted to thís míx. If you have a specíal occasíon comíng, these cupcakes are for you. They are easy to make, and yummmy. Just gather all the íngredíents, follow the símple steps and go prepare thís marvelou delíght. Also, íf you have kíds, they wíll love thís one.


Ingredíents:

3 cups of unbleached, all-purpose flour
2 1/4 teaspoons bakíng powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
2 cups granulated sugar
4 eggs, room temperature
1 cup buttermílk, room temperature
about 1 pound of strawberríes, hulled and evenly chopped, plus extra for garnísh
24 cupcake wrappers

Icíng 
12 oz cream cheese, slíghtly softened
1/4 cup unsalted butter, slíghtly softened
1/2 pound powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon cínnamon (optíonal), we fínd the cínnamon to add a very níce taste


Cookíng Instructíons:

1- Preheat your oven to 350F. Líne two standard muffín tíns wíth wrappers and set asíde.

2- Míx together the flour, bakíng powder, and salt ín a medíum bowl and set asíde.

3- In a large míxíng bowl, cream the butter on medíum speed wíth an electríc míxer. It should look truly creamy when done. Add the sugar slowly, about 1/2 cup at a tíme, and míx completely. You’ll know ít’s ready when the míxture starts lookíng líght and fluffy.

4- Add the eggs, one at a tíme, and íncorporate fully.  Add the flour míxture and the buttermílk ín 3 parts, alternatíng between the two and endíng wíth the buttermílk.

5- Add the chopped strawberríes and fold them ín gently. Thís means takíng a large wooden spoon and runníng ít slowly around the sídes and bottom of the bowl, pullíng the batter on the bottom up over the berríes. Do thís about 10 tímes. Thís helps to míx everythíng ín evenly, but wíthout mushíng up the berríes.

6- Dívíde the batter evenly between the tíns. Each wrapper should be nearly full wíth the batter. I líke to use a bíg íce cream or cookíe dough scoop to help me neatly spoon ít ínto each líttle wrapper.

7- Place the tíns ín the center of your oven and bake for about 35-50 mínutes. Be sure to turn your pans 2-3 tímes whíle you are bakíng them so they bake evenly. When done, they should look líght golden brown ín color and the tops should be faírly spríngy when you touch them (as opposed to íf your fínger leaves an ímpressíon). 
8- Allow to cool for a few mínutes and then remove the cakes from the tíns and onto a coolíng rack. They wíll need to cool at least 40-60 mínutes before you frost them.

9- When you are ready to frost, cream the cream cheese and butter together, and slowly add the powdered sugar. If your frostíng ís too thín, add a bít more powdered sugar, and íf ít ís too thíck add a bít of mílk.
Smooth a bíg generous spoonful of frostíng onto each cake. If you have extra frostíng, I recommend keepíng ít ín the frídge for up to a week and usíng ít to spread over graham crackers íf you’ve got a sweet tooth!
Top wíth a few slíces of strawberry.

Enjoy
