Cupcakes are something I enjoy making and decorating but not so much eating. When I decided to make these cupcakes I wanted to make them extra tasty so I filled them with a fresh strawberry filling. I was originally going to use raspberries but strawberries are in season so I went with that instead. I’m glad I did…..you can’t go wrong with Strawberry Filled Chocolate Cupcakes!
Since strawberries are just coming into season I can’t wait to get out and pick my own. Every year I usually pick enough to make jam, bake with some, and then freeze some for the winter months. Last year I made a Strawberry Balsamic Black Pepper jam and a Strawberry Vanilla jam that everyone in my family loved. This year I think I might get a bit more creative!
This coming weekend would be the perfect time to go berry picking but I’m away all weekend doing a race with my husband! Hopefully I can get out next week sometime and scoop up some strawberries before they’re all gone! I love picking berries first thing in the morning when it’s still cool outside and there’s nothing but the birds singing. I find my own row to pick in and look for the perfect spot with lots of berries!
What are some of your favorite things you like to make with fresh strawberries? Let me know and I just might even make it and post it for you!
