Minas vanilla cupcakes with strawberries

Cupcakes taste good and are nice to have in the freezer until you get guests. These have a whole strawberry in them and are one of my favorite cupcakes. If you want a little color in the frosting, you can add pastry color, until you are satisfied with the result.

Vanilla Cupcakes:

125 g butter

150 g sugar

2 store egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 vanilla bean

2 dl whipped cream

3 dl wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 strawberry for each cupcake

Whip soft butter and sugar to a fluffy buttercream. Then the eggs are whipped in, one at a time. Whisk in vanilla extract. Divide the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out the seeds, which are mixed into the batter. Sift in flour and baking powder, which are added together with the cream and mix into a lump-free dough.

Put paper forms in muffin trays. Distribute the batter in the molds until they are 1/3 full, put one berry in each cake and continue filling until the molds are 2/3 full. Bake in the middle of the oven at 175 degrees for approx. 20 min, until golden and well done. Cool.

Vanilla frosting:

125 g butter, at room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 vanilla bean

300 g melis

2-3 tablespoons whipped cream

A little lime juice

Whisk together butter and half of the icing sugar to a fluffy buttercream. Add the rest of the icing sugar, vanilla extract, vanilla bean seeds and cream. Whip the cream until light and fluffy. Adjust ev. with powdered sugar or cream, if the cream is too stiff or liquid and season it with lime juice.

Fill the frosting into a spray bag and spray spiral tops on the vanilla cupcakes.
