Tasty Tuesdays

Strawberry Cupcakes

  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix (Duncan Hines)
  • 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry Jell-O
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 3/4 cups confectioners sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease and flour three 9 inch round pans.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together cake mix, Jell-O mix and flour.
  4. Make a well in the center and pour in water, oil, and eggs.
  5. Stir in half of the container of strawberries and beat on low speed until blended.
  6. Scrape bowl, and beat 4 minutes on medium speed.
  7. Pour batter into prepared cupcake pans.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
  9. In a large bowl combine butter, confectioners sugar and the remaining half of the frozen strawberries.
  10. Beat on high speed until creamy.
  11. Add more sugar, if needed. This frosting can become too runny, if you're not careful.
Tip: Add a dollop of whipped cream and chocolate covered strawberry slices for a bit of extra yumminess.
