Study Snacks 2 – a trio of cupcakes

For this Sunday I made strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla cupcakes. I also made strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla frosting, and gave some of each frosting to each type of cupcake. So there were nine different combinations.
I made the cupcakes at home, brought them back to school and frosted them here.

Saucy Strawberry Cupcakes
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1/2 cup strawberry sauce (see below)

Cream the butter and sugar, add the eggs and vanilla and combine. Whisk or sift the flour, baking powder & soda, and salt in another bowl, then alternate adding the dry ingredients and the strawberry sauce into the butter mixture.

Strawberry sauce
1 1/2 cups of frozen strawberries
1-2 tbsp vanilla sugar
Cracked black pepper to taste

Let the strawberries sit with the sugar for about 5 minutes, then gently heat for about 15 minutes. Add the pepper (no, really. It’s amazing, use lots). Pour into a food processor or blender and puree.

Vanilla Cupcakes
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1/2 cup of milk

For the chocolate cupcakes, I added 2 tbsp of sifted cocoa, that’s all.
