Raspberry Cupcakes by asainemuri Raspberry Cupcakes by asainemuri

________________________________________________


Oh man, these might be my new favorite! :D
I made Raspberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting...and they are too delicious!
The color came out beautiful! Absolutely no artificial food coloring or dyes in these.

I find that many "berry" flavored cakes tend to be rather dull...or just too artificial tasting. This is usually because it calls for extracts or jelly/jams, which can sometimes taste too sugary or just not the way I want them to taste. For these cupcakes, I used a large bag of organic frozen (thawed) raspberries. When blended into the batter it became the most amazing color, even after being baked! They're super moist and have an amazing floral Raspberry taste that I'm just loving sooo much.

I'm a purist when it comes to Cream Cheese frosting, too. I neverrr buy it premade. Way too sugary. It just doesn't taste the same as homemade! (ゝω・)b

Thank you so much! I really appreciate it! :)

This recipe is actually REALLY easy! It's just your basic favorite white cake recipe (you could even use box cake if you want) make it as usual with all the ingrediants you normally need, then you just add a 10oz bag of thawed frozen raspberries to the batter and mix well. :) I've also made this recipe with the frozen raspberries plus a 2oz box of organic raspberry gelatine powder, too. For people who REALLY love raspberry flavor. ;)

Do you have any tipps for the frosting? I've had bad experience with that, always gets too runny somehow ; ;

No problem! :)

The trick to cream cheese frosting is to not over mix it, otherwise it will become very runny. Cream cheese frosting in general is a very soft frosting (not meant for piping) so if you're looking for a frosting that will be firm, I would go with a butter cream frosting. Personally though, I love cream cheese frosting with any recipe that calls for fruit (cheese and fruit, right? XD) so the best tip is try not to over mix, and make sure your cream cheese and butter is room temp. Here is a good recipe:

8oz package of cream cheese
1/4 cup butter (half stick)
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
In that order, all at room temperature.

Some people prefer more sugar, but I also find that less sugar makes for a less runny frosting. :) Good luck~

Ooh, how pretty! :D And I LOVE cream cheese frosting. I found this Red Velvet Cake recipe on the Food Network website, and I use Cream Cheese frosting for it. It's so good! ^_^ Anyway, these look delicious.

You should try to make it homemade sometime, too. ;) It's super easy!

8oz package of cream cheese
1/4 cup butter (half stick)
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
In that order, all at room temperature. :heart:

This is awesome! I don't like artificial colors either. I find them disappointing.

Your cupcakes remind me of how I was so disappointed to learn that Red Velvet Cake is just artificially colored cake, :( and not the raspberry cream cheese cake that I imagined it to be. Then I figured maybe this much red cannot be had with fruit alone.

Thanks for proving me wrong. :) Maybe I'll try this.

Thank you! :)

I'm trying to get away from most artificial dyes myself, so it's always nice to find a way to do that. Sad thing is that it was fairly obvious...but I guess we get conditioned into believing we need a lot of dyes to make things pretty. Nope! :D Just lots of Raspberries!

Oh, I know how you feel about red velvet. I love it so much, but I never eat it because of all the dye. :( So sad!
