A cupcake for the grown ups !

Today we made our favorite cupcakes to bring to a party. I really like them because they “feel” healthier -not a butter based frosting- than the cupcakes i’m used to make.

Strawberry Balsamic Reduction ( for 24 cupcakes) :

  • 1Lbs. Organic Strawberries – chopped
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 Tbsp. Balsamic vinegar

Put all the ingredients on a pot on low heat, cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, on low heat (about 7 minutes). Let cool, and your cupcake filling is ready !

Mascarpone frosting (for 24 cupcakes) :

  • 16 ounces Mascarpone cheese
  • 1Lbs. ¬†confectioner’s¬†sugar
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon

Beat the mascarpone and juice and gradually add the sugar. Depending on your taste you may want to adjust the sugar amount.

Core you favorite vanilla cupcake, fill with strawberry compote and add frosting.


Happy Father’s day ! Life is sweet, remember to eat dessert first ! (hopefully my kids won’t read this)
