How to make it
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
- 1. Beat butter until softened. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
- 2 Add egg and beat until well combined.
- 3. Measure the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder into a small sized bowl and whisk to combine.
- 4. Measure out the milk and vanilla and stir to combine
- 5. Add about a third of the dry ingredients to the butter/sugar and beat to combine. Add about a half of the milk/vanilla and beat to combine. Continue adding, alternating between dry and wet and finishing with the dry.
- 6. Scoop batter into cupcake cups about 2/3’s full. Bake cupcakes for about 22-25 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean
- Strawberry Ganache Filling and Ganache Glaze
- 1. Chop chocolate and transfer into a heat proof bowl.
- 2. Heat cream until bubbles form around the edge of the pan, pour cream over the chocolate.
- 3. Let sit for 1 minute then stir until combined.
- 4. Add vanilla and salt. Stir until combined.
- 5. Divide the ganache in two approximate equal portions. In the first portion, mix in the chopped strawberries. Transfer to the refrigerator to chill.
