Strawberry-Filled Cardamom Cupcakes Recipe

Category: Desserts

 Ingredients List

  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks), at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large egg whites, at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup whole milk, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup Chunky Strawberry Sauce
  • Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting

 Directions

Heat the oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Line 2 (12-well) muffin pans with paper cupcake liners; set aside.
Place the flour, baking powder, cardamom, and salt in a medium bowl and whisk to aerate and break up any lumps; set aside.
Place the butter in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and beat on medium-high speed until light in color, about 3 minutes. Add the sugar and continue beating until the mixture is light in color and airy, about 3 minutes.
Stop the mixer and scrape down the paddle and the sides of the bowl. On medium speed, add the egg whites 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Next add the eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
On low speed, slowly add the milk and vanilla and mix until combined (the mixture will look curdled). Add the reserved flour mixture and mix until just combined, about 15 seconds.
Fill each muffin well about three-quarters full. Using a spoon, create a small indentation in the batter by slightly spreading it from the middle out toward the edges. Measure 1 heaping teaspoon of the strawberry sauce and place the back of the teaspoon inside the indentation. Rotate the spoon, letting the sauce slide into the indentation. Repeat in each well.
Bake the cupcakes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 18 to 20 minutes. Set the pans on wire racks and let cool for 5 minutes. Remove the cupcakes from the pans and let cool completely on the wire racks before frosting.
