Stuck in the Middle Cupcakes
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour(leveled)
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
4 large eggs, room temperature
2 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole milk
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2cup seedless raspberry or strawberry jam
24 fresh raspberries, or 12 strawberries
(cut in half) for garnish
Directions for Baking Cupcakes
•Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare muffin pans with liners or
butter and flour. If you plan to use liners, consider choosing
a cute design to go with your party.
•Combine flour, baking powder, and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. In a
large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat granulated sugar and
1 cup butter until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a
time. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla. With mixer on low, beat in
flour mixture in two parts, alternating with 1 cup milk.
•Divide batter among prepared muffin cups. Bake until a
toothpick inserted in center of a cupcake comes out clean, about
20 minutes. Let cool in pan 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack
to cool completely.
•Meanwhile, whisk together confectioners’ sugar, cocoa, and 1/2
teaspoon salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat 1
cup butter until light and fluffy. With mixer on low, gradually
add cocoa mixture, scraping down side of bowl as necessary.
Gradually beat in 4 tablespoons milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Beat frosting until light and fluffy, about 45 seconds.
•Use a paring knife, to cut a 1-inch-deep section from the top
of each cupcake (do not discard). Fill each hole with 1 teaspoon
jam (raspberry or strawberry) and replace cutout pieces. Frost
cupcakes with a cream cheese or butter cream frosting- top with
raspberries or strawberries.
This recipe yields: 24 baby shower cupcakes
Tips for your baby shower cupcake ideas:
•The fruit filling will work well with other caked flavors. Try chocolate,
it’s delicious with raspberry fruit filling.
•Use mousse, a light whipped frosting, or a light whipped cream
as filling. Again, you can mix it up by offering a variety
of fillings to your guests; or you can stick with just one.
•I suggest using a cupcake stand with decorative liners,
wrappers or both. Add a cupcake topper for a finishing touch!
TIP: If you decide to bake your cupcakes from a box…no one will ever know!
