Lizzie's Strawberry Cupcakes by Trisha Yearwood
  • Cake
  • 1  standard box plain white cake mix (2-layer)
  • 1 3  ounce  box strawberry-flavored gelatin
  • 2/3  cup  vegetable oil
  • 1/2  cup  frozen sliced strawberries in syrup, thawed
  • 1/2  cup  water
  • 4  large eggs
  • Icing
  • 1/2  cup  butter, room temperature (1 stick)
  • 1 - 1 1/2  cups  powdered sugar
  • 1  cup  frozen sliced strawberries in syrup, thawed*

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line twenty-four 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with paper bake cups; set aside.

2. For cupcakes, with an electric mixer, beat the cake mix, gelatin, oil, strawberries, and water until fully combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Spoon batter into prepared cups filling 2/3 full. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Remove muffin pan from oven, let cool on wire rack, 5 minutes.. Remove cakes from muffin pan and cool completely on wire rack.

3. For icing, in a blender or food processor, puree the butter, 1 cup powdered sugar, and strawberries for the glaze until smooth. The mixture will appear curdled and smooth out as you process. Add additional powdered sugar to desired consistency. Spoon desired amount atop cupcakes; let stand several hours (icing will remain a bit soft). Chill any remaining icing.

From the Test Kitchen* Whole Cake Variation:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Prepare batter as above. Pour batter into prepared pan and gently smooth top. Bake 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on wire rack. Using a toothpick, poke several holes in the top of the cake. Pour icing over the cake, allowing some of it to seep into the cake. Makes 12 servings.
