My Strawberry Surprise Cupcake/Cake

Strawberry Surprise Cupcakes
Cik Ngah really love these cupcakes, so delicious for those who love a richer flavoured cakes. In this case the taste of coconuts and nuts with strawberry dominating the flavour..!
Cik Ngah found the recipe on the net when Cik Ngah was googling for Strawberry cake and cupcakes recipe.

Cik Ngah had actually baked these cupcakes twice! The cake version Cik Ngah baked for a dear friend's birthday and had actually received order for these cupcakes! Here is the recipe:

The cake version....

  2. Bake in 3 generously greased and floured 8- or 9-inch round layer pans at 350° for 35 minutes, or until cake tests done...(I used loaf pan!)
  3. Or you can bake as cupcakes, use icream scoop to spoon the batter into cups.
  4. To make the frosting, cream together cream cheese and butter; mix in vanilla and powdered sugar until firm but spreadable.
