Strawberry Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

Strawberry Choc Chip Bundt Cake | The Blonde Buckeye

I finally got a bundt cake pan… I know, it’s crazy that I didn’t before. So now that I do, I had to try it out as soon as possible. I wanted something with both fruit and chocolate, so in the spirit of chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate chips with strawberries sounded like a delicious pairing. And it was! A dense moist cake with tart strawberries and decadent chocolate flecked throughout. Then I glazed mine with a sweet vanilla icing, and topped it with fresh blueberries and raspberries with a sprinkle of powdered sugar. The best of all things both sweet and fresh.

My only go-to strawberry pick is a milkshake from In-N-Out (perfect with a burger). These cupcakes however, are just the right amount of slightly tart & fruity, mixed with sweet. I found this recipe a few years ago and have been making them ever since, with no major changes. They are perfection. If you can’t get to a Sprinkles, these are the next best thing.Continue Reading

I made these adorable little cupcakes for a 1st birthday party & was so pleased at the way they turned out.  Ironically, I used the same Strawberry Buttercream recipe from the same little lady’s baby shower. However this time I used it on a lemon cupcake, to make – you guessed it – Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes.

Also, to try something new, I used the frosting method that looks like roses!  How cute right?  And sooo easy!  Typically, you start piping on the outer edge of a cupcake & make your way to the center.  But for these, you start from the inside, then go out, tapering off the end.  It’s really easy & looks so pretty.  Another great thing about this method is that it uses a lot less frosting.  (**You could make half of the recipe below if you are using this technique).
