I (Anna) decided for the food recipe that I would share one of my all time favories…or well one of the general favorites! Now and again I get the urge to make something “healthy.” Having grown up in a family of blood pressure and heart problems it’s a necessity. One of the best ones I’ve done is my Angel Foodcake Cupcakes. It’s a health alternative to a bowl of ice cream, and still satisfies even the most ravenous sweet tooth!
1 box mix angel food cake (or a homemade recipe)
1 qt diced strawberries
1 small carton heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
Step 1: Bake angel food cake in cupcake tins according to box recipe. If using a homemade recipe, put batter in cupcake tins and check after approx. 14 min. Let cool.
Step 2: Dice strawberries and mix in bowl with sugar.
Step 3: Make sure your whipping cream is nice and cold. Put in mixer with whip attachment (or hand mixer) and whip it until nice and fluffy. Add in vanilla and powdered sugar to taste. About a teaspoon of vanilla and tablespoon of powdered sugar is lovely
Step 4: In a small sauce on med-low heat pour about half of the strawberries in and stir. They will cook down becoming soft, sweet and juicey!
Step 5: Take a melon baller or spoon and scoop out the center of the cooled cupcakes. Fill with strawberry compote you made previously. Top with a dollop of your homemade whipped cream and a few of the diced strawberries you didn’t cook down.
