Do you ever have stuff in your pantry that you have never used or hand no idea how to use? Sometimes, the best recipes come from mixing the only available ingredients you have left at home to make the most memorable meals and desserts. This is exactly what happened to me. It’s the end of the month and I was 1 day away from doing my monthly grocery shopping but decided to use up the last stuff I had to fill my sweet tooth during studying for 6 hours straight. This is my very own homemade recipe for Strawberry and chocolate pear cupcakes and they are so moist. Who knew you could actually mix those two together but you can and most of the ingredients are substitutable by healthier, gluten free or fat free choice.
As per Kristianna Riley ‘s request, here is the recipe for the cupcakes I made last night. They were different and awesome.
2 cups flour
1/2 cup milk
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 stick butter
1 large can of pears ( drain syrup)
3 tbsp of syrup from pear can
3 tbsp chocolate powder for half of mix after mixing
2-3 tbsp strawberry milk powder or syrup for other half.
1. Preheat over to 350°
2. Mix all wet ingredients with blender including sugar, butter, and pears.
3. Sift dry ingredients into 2 large bowls.
( 1 for strawberry and 1 for chocolate)
4. Distribute half of the wet blend into one bowl and the other half in another bowl.
5. Add strawberry powder to one bowl and chocolate powder to other bowl and mix by hand with a fork.
6. Fill cupcake baking tray with cupcake wrappers.
7. Fill each cup 2/3 full.
8. You can mix left over batter for marble effect.
9. Bake for 25 minutes and let sit for 10 minutes.
10. Top cupcakes with Nutella and charamel or toppings and frosting of your choice.
1. This is not a very sweet cupcake and will be enjoyed by people who don’t like sweet stuff that much. The sweetness will mostly depend on the frosting and toppings.
2. Honey is a great and healthy glaze that I used for the strawberry cupcakes and would work just ad great on the chocolate.
