Mini Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcake

I know that I am long overdue for a blog post, but I have had a very busy month preparing for a trunk show that I was in!
And since it has been so long, I have decided to share one of my recipes from my show, the Mini Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcake!! Enjoy :)

Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes
Ingredients:

1 cup fresh whole strawberries
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon course salt
1/8 cup skim milk
1/8 cup heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
2 egg whites, room temperature

.
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place strawberries in a food processor; process until pureed.  You should have about 2/3 cup of puree; set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.  In a separate bowl, mix together milk, whipping cream, vanilla and strawberry puree; set both aside. In mixer bowl, cream butter, until light and fluffy.  Gradually add sugar and continue to beat until well combined and fluffy.  Reduce the mixer speed to medium and slowly add the egg and egg whites until just blended. With the mixer on low, slowly add half the flour mixture; mix until just blended.  Add the strawberry mixture; mix until just blended.  Repeat with remaining flour and strawberry sauce, scraping down the sides as needed until well blended. Fill greased or paper-lined mini muffin cups with. Bake  for 17 minutes (mini cupcakes) or until cupcakes spring up when pressed lightly with your finger.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting
Ingredients:
8 ounces (2 packages) cream cheese softened
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2/3 cup mashed strawberries

.
Directions: Blend together the cream cheese and butter using an electric mixer until fully combined. Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time. Increase mixer speed until fluffy (if you want frosting thicker continue to add powdered sugar until you reach the desired consistency). Frost and decorate! I like to use fresh strawberry chunks for the tops or non perils!
