Real Strawberry-Poked White Cupcakes with Whipped Cream

Strawberry-Poked Vanilla Cupcakes

“With a thick, fresh strawberry syrup poured inside a vanilla cupcake topped with whipped cream, you can’t go wrong!  These are just delicious!  I like this a whole lot better than jello-poked.  I have done these with my own vanilla homemade cupcake recipe which I absolutely love and will share, but this quick version with the box mix is really superb! I have also done these with the regular sized cupcakes but prefer the jumbo sized cupcakes to get even more of that delicious pure strawberry filling inside.  Enjoy!”

Servings: 16

INGREDIENTS:

1 (16 1/2-ounce) box white cake mix (I use Duncan Hines)
3 egg whites
1/4 cup oil
1 cup water
4 cups strawberries, hulled,washed, and dried
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups heavy cream
4 tablespoons sugar
8 wholes strawberries, sliced in half

 

DIRECTIONS:

1. Follow the directions on the cake mix box using the egg whites, oil, and water and make 16 jumbo cupcakes. Let them cool.
2. Puree the 4 cups of strawberries and the ½ cup of sugar together in a processor until it becomes a thick syrup.
3. Poke several holes into tops of the cupcakes with the end of a wooden spoon, going down only about half way.
4. Carefully pour the strawberry puree into the holes.
5. Whip the heavy cream with the 4 tablespoons of sugar until stiff peaks form.
6. Frost or pipe the top of the cupcakes with the whipped cream.
7. Place a strawberry slice on top of the whipped cream.
8. Chill for an hour before serving or cover and store in the refrigerator for a day or two.
