I found these cute miniature cupcake liners and I
thought it would make the perfect size cupcakes
for my grandson Brody.
I am always on Pinterest finding recipes among other wonderful things and so I found this recipe for vanilla cupcakes. I did not add as much sugar as it called as I don't want the little one to have too
much sugar so I skimped slightly.Here is the great recipe I used...http://www.justsotasty.com/vanilla-cupcakes-with-fresh-strawberry-buttercream/#more-558
I started to put strawberries inside the batter but then I thought....
I don't like cooked fruit and wasn't sure if and how it would cook so
I only added strawberries in a few. Turned out fine though.
After they were cooked I wanted to make them a bit more "healthy"
so I scooped out the middle and added cut up strawberry pieces.
I made a flour frosting with flour and milk cooked in a pan over
medium heat until it thickens to the consistency of frosting and then I added beating it well,
a small amount of sugar, just enough to sweeten it, probably 1/4 cup, I also threw in some cut up
strawberries too.It usually asks for 1 cup of sugar but again, I didn't want too much sugar for Brody.
Then I frosted the cupcakes and added another piece of strawberry on top.
This one is for Brody!
He liked picking off the strawberry on top

This is what I did with the left over middles from the cupcakes
I cut up more strawberries added a dab of frosting and a tablespoon
organic sugar covered it and put it in the fridge until it was juicy.
This was a great snack for me!
