Vanilla Strawberry Cupcakes with a Strawberry Rhubarb compote

DSC_0569Vanilla 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 🙂

DSC_0568I 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!

DSC_0587I 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!

  1. Welcome to Fiesta Friday Indus, 2 perfect components to satisfy my sweet tooth. Cupcakes with a strawberry center and home made jam. I’m don’t doubt everyone was happy after downing a couple of those. I like the simplicity of the recipe and yes rhubarb and strawberries would make a lovely jam indeed. Thanks for bringing these to the Feista 🙂
