How to Bake Angel Food Berry Cupcakes

by Adeze Wilford

Supplies

  • 1 Box of angel food cake mix
  • 4 Large strawberries
  • 1 Bunch Blueberries
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    This is a pretty simple doctor up a box cake mix. It was a late night baking experiment with some fresh berries I had. Measurements are up to you!

    Step 2

    All your ingredients. I ended up not using the frosting. But it's up to you.

    Step 3

    Chop up some strawberries into smaller than bite sized pieces.

    Step 4

    Pour about a tablespoon of sugar over the berries. Leave this in the fridge for as long as possible. I lasted about an hour before I got impatient. Ideally you want to wait several to get a good syrup

    Step 5

    Microwave for about a minute to take the chill off but to also draw out some more sugary syrup goodness.

    Step 6

    Pour berries into bowl. I definitely snacked on some before pouring it in.

    Step 7

    Add 1 1/4 cups of water or whatever your box mix tells you to add.

    Step 8

    Add the berry syrupy mixture to the cake mix and stir until you get a batter like consistency. Then add to the cupcake tin. Into the oven we go!

    Step 9

    Slide into the oven at 345 F and bake for 24 minutes, checking every so often.

    Step 10

    They rose up a lot more than I expected. Take them out to cool. I couldn't help to try them while still warm😊. These ended up not needing frosting.

    Step 11

    I didn't really care for the crust that baked on the cupcakes so next time I think I would use a white or yellow cake mix. That way I could add frosting too.
