Strawberry Chocolate Chunk Babycakes
 
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 3½ cups cake flour
  • 1¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar plus 2 tablespoons
  • ¾ cup strawberry preserves
  • 5½ cups strawberries, hulled and chopped
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chunks (optional)
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 2 or more tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted
Instructions
  1. Grease and flour your mini or small bundt pans, two regular size bundt or loaf pans or three 9 inch cake pans and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, add 2 tablespoons of sugar and strawberries and pulse until chopped and uniform in size but not pureed. You want to have some chunks.
  3. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt and set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl cream together butter and brown and white sugar until light and fluffy.
  5. Add the strawberry preserves and eggs one at a time blending until completely incorporated.
  6. Scrape down the sides and add vanilla extract.
  7. With mixer set to low, add the flour in thirds alternating with cream and buttermilk finishing with dry ingredients.
  8. Add strawberries and chocolate chunks and blend until combined.
  9. Fill pans ¾ of the way full and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. For the mini-bundt pans I baked them for 12-15 minutes but cooking times will vary depending on size of pans you use.
  10. When the cakes are done let cool on a wire rack until completely cooled.
  11. Mix together confectioners sugar, melted butter and milk a teaspoon at a time until you get the consistency you want.
  12. Place wire rack with cakes on it on top of a baking sheet lined with foil and drizzle desired amount on each cake or dunk the top of the cakes half way into the glaze and let drain on rack.
