berry delicious. [mini strawberry cupcakes]

August 3rd, 2010 by | comments

It’s almost impossible to limit yourself to just one of these delectable mini strawberry cupcakes. I baked them for my family and cousins from Ohio while they were visiting and I think they demolished the batch in 3 days. I used my grandma’s recipe for her strawberry cake, but figured the recipe would be just as delicious in cupcake form—and that was definitely the case!


1 package strawberry cake mix (I prefer Betty Crocker)

1 three oz. package strawberry gelatin

3/4 cup cooking oil

4 eggs

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup mashed strawberries


Combine cake mix, gelatin, water and oil. Put in big bowl of electric mixer. Beat until smooth. (Add eggs one at a time). Beat after each addition. Add berries and beat until well mixed. Divide batter into mini cupcake tins. Bake at 350 degrees.

Frosting recipe (from Betty Crocker cookbook):

3 cups powdered sugar

1/3 cup margarine or butter, softened

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

About 2 tbsp. milk
