This is definitely my favourite cupcake of the series so far! Probably because I have an unhealthy obsession with cream cheese frosting...I could literally eat a whole vat of the stuff! But what makes these Strawberry Cream Cheese Cupcakes even more special is that the strawberry jam & cream cheese filling. It's like a jammy dodger cupcake surprise when you bite into it! Aside from all that, they look very pretty and summery plus your whole kitchen will smell like strawberries & cream when you're finished baking - who doesn't want that?!
To make the cupcakes you will need:
2 1/3 cups plain flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons & 1 teaspoon strawberry jam
3 oz cream cheese, cut into 24 cubes
To make the cream cheese frosting you will need:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-3 teaspoons milk
4 cups icing sugar
To decorate the cupcakes I sliced some fresh strawberries and placed one on top of each. The red & pink cupcake cases are from Waitrose and I bought this cardboard cupcake stand from Morissons! This recipe bakes 24 cupcakes. 1 cupcake = 320 cals. To see how we baked these, check out the video here!

Nothing to do with cupcakes but I just wanted to share this picture from our family picnic yesterday! We have been so lucky with the weather lately, we decided to make the most of it and have a little picnic in the park! Emilia loved it...she had so much fun eating outside & running around stealing other children's toys! Her dress is from Zara, mine is another nursing dress from Boob and my jacket is from H&M (soooo old! Maybe 5 years now!).
