Delicious Strawberry Cupcakes... that I'll probably bake again ;)

These cupcakes were delicious and best served warm or right out of the oven. Of course, fan them (like they do on my fave, "The Great British Baking Show"), so that the frosting doesn't melt off.  These recipes have been tweaked, but are all inspired by another great show, "Cupcake Wars."

For the Cupcakes:

3/4 c. butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. flour
1 c. strawberry yogurt
1/4-1/2 c. sour cream
1 tsp. baking pow.
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Add dry to wet. Bake at 350 for 15-18 min.

For the Strawberry Compote Filling:

1/2 c. strawberries
1 tbsp. pow. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. water

Cook down about 10 min. Scoop out centers by cutting in a circle with a knife. Use a small spoon to fill cupcakes.

For the Buttercream Frosting:

3-31/2 c. pow. sugar
1 c. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1-2 tbsp. milk

Use beaters and make sure the butter is softened but only a little. 

This recipe was perfect- it bakes up nicely, and I will definitely do the compote filling again. So yummy and a win with all of my kiddos and Molly's friends. ;)
