Strawberry Cupcakes

I was just out watering my garden, and my newly planted strawberry plants. I just love strawberries. Sadly, my daughter thinks they are gross. Ah least my son loves them as much as I do! Unfortunately when we have strawberries for dessert, we have to have another dessert to go along with it, so my daughter doesn't feel left out. Luckily, I made the Buy Me Some Peanut and Cracker Jack® cupcakes earlier this week...

  • 1 (18.25 oz) box white cake mix
  • 1 (3 oz) box strawberry gelatin
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries, thawed and drained
  • 1/2 cup salad oil
  • 4 egg whites
  • Strawberry Frosting
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place paper baking cups in 24 muffin cups.

  2. Combine cake mix, gelatin, water, strawberries, oil, and egg whites in a medium bowl and beat with an electric or stand mixer for 3 minutes. Divide batter equally between muffin cups.

  3. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched.
    Remove from pan and cool completely. Frost with Strawberry Frosting.
