“I came up with these creamy, dreamy, jam-filled, berry-licious treats because I wanted to make something NON-chocolate for Valentine's Day (crazy, I know!). Don't be frightened by the long directions; these cupcakes are quite easy to make. The batter is based on Kim D's Fresh Strawberry Cake. I hope you enjoy these as much as my BF and I did!”

Directions

  1. FROSTING:
  2. Mix cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar together with a hand-mixer on low speed until incorporated. Increase mixer speed to high and beat until light and fluffy (4-5 minutes) scraping down sides of bowl as necessary.
  3. Lower mixer speed, add vanilla extract, then beat at high speed until fluffy. Refrigerate until somewhat stiff (can be made up to 3 days in advance).
  4. CUPCAKES:
  5. Preheat oven to 350F and prepare 18 muffin cups.
  6. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together.
  7. In a separate large bowl, cream together butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract.
  8. Beat for 3 minutes, frequently scraping the sides of the bowl.
  9. Add the 1/3 of the dry mixture to the creamed mixture, then 1/3 of the strawberries; continue until all ingredients are mixed together.
  10. Beat for 2 more minutes.
  11. Fill each muffin cup 1/3 of the way with batter and spoon 1 tsp jam into each cup. Top with remaining batter.
  12. Bake 20-25 minutes, until tester inserted into a cupcake comes out clean.
  13. Turn out onto wire racks to cool.
  14. When cooled completely, frost with cream cheese frosting.
