Vanilla Cupcakes with a strawberry surprise! How cute is that isn’t it? I don’t know how this idea came to my mind. But it did and I just had to try it! Especially now when it is strawberry season and when for the last two weeks my weekly share in the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program has contained strawberries! This week we also got cherries and raspberries. How berry sweet 🙂
I also got some Rhubarb last week. I had never made anything with Rhubarb before so I was really excited. I looked and pinned a lot of Rhubarb recipes. But since I didn’t have a lot of it, I decided to just try making a Strawberry Rhubarb jelly/compote. And I am so glad I decided to do that. It turned out fabulous and a perfect complement to my strawberry surprise cupcakes! My kids just loved it and wasted no time in gobbling up the cupcakes. What a delight indeed! Both the cupcakes and the sight of my kids devouring it!
This strawberry rhubarb jelly was the easiest thing to make and I can see myself drizzling that over pretty much everything – toast, cereal, yoghurt, crackers….Yum!
I am bringing these cute and utterly delightful lovelies to Fiesta Friday this week to share with Angie and all my lovely friends 🙂 Loretta from Safari of the Mind and Caroline from Caroline’s Cooking are the co-hosts this week!
