Strawberry Cheesecake CupcakesPosted 31 July 2013 by Debbie
Strawberry cheesecake cupcakes are another recipe from the delectable Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook. As their name implies, they are the flavours of strawberry cheesecake in cupcake form.
Ingredients (makes 12 cupcakes):
- 120 g plain flour
- 140 g caster sugar
- 1½ tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 40 g butter, unsalted
- 120 ml milk
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 12 large strawberries
- 200 g digestive biscuits
Cream cheese butter icing
- 300 g icing sugar
- 50 g butter, unsalted
- 125 g cream cheese
Beat together the flour, butter, sugar, salt and baking powder until well combined. Slowly add the vanilla and milk until well mixed. Add the egg and beat further (but don’t overbeat).
Chop the strawberries and put them into the bottom of paper cupcake cases.
Spoon the batter into the cupcake cases and bake for 20-25 minutes at 170°C (325°F). Leave to cool.
Decorate the cupcakes with the cream cheese topping, and sprinkle on some crushed digestive bisuits.
