Bake-a-thon 2015: Day 7
Bake of the Day: Eggless Strawberry Creamcheese Cupcakes
Did you know that yesterday, December 15th, was National Cupcake day? I didn't either, but it was on my daughter's calendar and that's how I found out :-) So here's a recipe celebrating the cupcake day.
Cupcakes with Strawberry & Creamcheese I actually made these for my mom's 60th birthday couple of months ago. We also celebrated my daughter's 3rd birthday on the same day, hence the 60 & 3 toppers on the cake. I decorated some with fresh strawberries and some with fondant toppers. Base is my favorite vegan vanilla cupcakes stuffed with a piece of cream cheese which is in turn topped with strawberry jam.

Strawberry Cream cheese Cupcakes Ingredients:
  • 1¼cups All purpose flour
  • 2tbsp Corn Starch
  • ¾tsp Baking powder
  • ½tsp Baking Soda
  • ¼tsp Salt
  • 1cup Soy or Almond Milk
  • 1tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • ⅓cup Canola Oil
  • ¾cup Sugar
  • 2tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1tbsp Strawberry Jam
  • 2tbsp Cream Cheese, cut into 12 pieces
  • 4oz. Cream Cheese, softened
  • 2tbsp Unsalted butter, softened
  • ½tsp Vanilla
  • 1~2tsp Vanilla extract
  • 2cups Powdered Sugar
  • As needed Strawberries, sliced
  1. To make the cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350°F and line muffin pan with cupcake liners.
  2. Whisk soy milk and vinegar in a measuring cup and set aside for a few minutes to curdle.
  3. Beat together the soy milk mixture, oil, sugar, vanilla in a large bowl. Sift in the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix until no big lumps remain.
  4. Fill cupcake liners ⅔rds of the way full. Before baking, stir the strawberry jam in small bowl until smooth.
  5. Place 1 piece of cream cheese on top of each cupcake, press into the batter lightly. Spoon 1/4tsp strawberry jam on top of the cream cheese in each cupcake. Bake 20~22 minutes. Remove from the oven, after 5 minutes transfer onto a wire rack and cool completely.
  6. Make Cream Cheese Frosting: Beat cream cheese, butter, vanilla and 1tsp milk in a large bowl using a hand mixer or in a stand mixer on low speed until smooth. Beat 1cup powdered sugar at a time.
  7. Gradually beat in just enough milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable. If the frosting is too thick, add more milk. If the frosting is too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar.
  8. Frost the cooled cupcakes. Just before serving garnish each cupcake with strawberry slices.
