Clara’s Strawberry-Rose Cupcakes
Source: Internet: Circ. 2010
We found this recipe online on a foodie site, it looked delicious and the “rose” enticed us. My daughter made the first, second and third batch. I’d say they are well loved by friends and family and they have now become known as “Clara’s cupcakes”. Give them a go!
|1C. Butter||¾ tsp. baking powder|
|1 1/4C. Sugar||¼ tsp. Baking soda|
|3 Eggs||¼ tsp. salt|
|1tsp. Vanilla||1/3 c. strawberry jam|
|¾ Buttermilk||1 ½ -2 tsp. rose water|
|2 ½ C. Flour|
Prepare this batter as you would any normal cake batter way. Combine and whip together soft butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
Pre-combine all dry ingredients. Now combine the dry to the wet and slowly stir up with a spatula. Add your buttermilk, strawberry jam, and rose water to the final mix.
Prepare your cupcake dish by brushing each hole with melted butter and sprinkle a dash of bread crumbs.
Put in pre-heated 325°F oven for 25 min. or until cooked. Cool and proceed to the frosting step:
Cream Cheese Frosting:
|4 oz. cream cheese||1 Tbs. Vanilla|
|¼ C. butter||2-2 ½ C. powder sugar|
|1 ½ -1 ¼ tsp. rose water|
Whip all ingredients together until smooth and creamy. You can either spread on with a frosting knife, or put it in a bag and pipe on the frosting.
