How would you like strawberries on your chocolate moist cupcakes?
Chocolate moist cupcake is my ultimate favorite flavor. And I’m not sure if I have shared that itsy bitsy detail with you yet. But the thing is aside from chocolate I m simply in love with strawberries as well. And when these two are put together, it’s just cupcake heaven! Well, at least for me. But I’m pretty sure you will agree once you get a taste of it.
Here’s a recipe that I’m more than happy to share with you which I have tried myself. The other thing that makes this recipe extra special is that the frosting is not only strawberry flavored alone but mixed with cream cheese. That it makes more interesting and tastier.
You can have these scrumptious sweets for any occasion especially for Valentine’s Day.
So check out the recipe below and enjoy.
Chocolate Cupcakes with Strawberry Cheesecake Frosting Drizzled With Chocolate Ganache Recipe
1 c flour
1 c sugar
1/3 dark cocoa powder
pinch of salt
1 tsp baking powder
splash of vanilla (1 tsp)
1/2 c veg oil
1/2 c low-fat sour cream
3/4 c water (more or less, just until batter is a little bit thinner than brownie batter)
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese room temp
1 stick of salted butter room temp
6 fresh strawberries (blended or mashed finely with a fork)
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 c confectionary sugar (just until your frosting is the consistency you want it. I don’t like super sweet icing but for it to hold together properly you need the confec sugar)
1 c semi sweet or milk chocolate chips
1/4 c heavy cream
1/2 tsp vanilla
Chocolate covered strawberries
Decorative sprinkles (I got mine at homegoods)
