Brownies and Strawberry Cake: an ideal combination!

June is one of my favorite months of the year since strawberries are ripe and ready for picking!

Of course, when producer Emily Allen requested a strawberry and chocolate surprise for her special day I was thrilled.  Ironically, I did not use actual strawberries in the batter, but the cupcakes still turned out to be delicious!

One common misconception of my baking is that I make up all of these recipes.  

Quite the contrary!  

I can barely figure out when to add more sugar or butter to my frosting!  I am getting better, and I think the more I bake, the easier it will be.

Here is the recipe that I found.

I did make one change.  Instead of using the white cake mix, I used strawberry.  Yes, the boxed cake mix.  I know.  Shame on me.

But, I can honestly say these were one of the easiest batches I have made!  Very quick and very tasty!

The recipe lists a yield of 48.  Unless you are baking in a mini pan, there is no way you will have that many!  I had closer to 36.  Still a lot, but they were eaten quickly!

The most fun part for my coworkers was deciding which one to eat!  It is very obvious how much brownie was in each cupcake since I used white liners.  The ones with a lot of brownie were the first to go!  I topped them with chocolate buttercream frosting and a fresh strawberry for garnish.

Happy baking!
