Consistently as of now, our zone starts to see numerous travelers. We live in the Washington DC territory, and spring is the time everybody needs to see the Cherry Blossoms in full sprout in our countries Capital. It truly is a site to see! The trees are perfect, and it turns the tidal bowl of the Potomac and wherever around it a sublime shade of pink.

We've had a truly fierce winter here in the Mid-Atlantic. (We are actually sitting tight for one more blizzard to move through tomorrow first thing.) Regardless of our endless winter, the cherry blooms are set to show up soon. To the extent I'm concerned, they can't come soon enough! I'm SOOOOO prepared for spring! All things considered, I expected to prepare a clump of these astonishing Very Cherry Cupcakes to root for the up and coming appearance of spring and the cherry blooms.

To the extent I'm concerned, a great cupcake must have two parts that take it from great to incredible. Those two segments are clearly, cake quality and icing. I've had various cupcakes (some REALLY costly ones from extravagant cupcakeries) that truly disillusion on one of the two of these territories. Either the cake is DRY, or the icing possesses a flavor like a blend of granulated sugar and margarine enhanced shortening. Let's be honest – there's nothing more terrible than a dry cupcake… gracious pause, yes there is. A dry cupcake with truly baffling icing – that is the most noticeably terrible!

Ingredients :

  • 1/2 c. butter (1 stick), room temperature
  • 1 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 4 egg whites, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 c. cake flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/3 c. buttermilk
  • 1 (10 oz) jar, maraschino cherries, finely chopped
  • 3 Tbsp. reserved maraschino cherry syrup (from the jar of cherries)
  • Cherry Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • 1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 c. butter (1 stick), room temperature
  • 2 Tbsp. reserved maraschino cherry syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • a few drops of red food coloring
  • 1 (10 oz.) jar, maraschino cherries WITH stems
  • 5 1/2 - 6 cups powdered sugar

Instructions :

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line (two) 12-cup cupcake tins with paper liners. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl with a stand or hand mixer, on low, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. While still on low, gradually add the egg whites one at a time. Add the vanilla and mix until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, while mixer is on low. Batter will be smooth and creamy. Measure out the buttermilk, add the cherry syrup and stir. While mixer is on low, slowly add the buttermilk mixture to the batter. Lastly, add the chopped cherries, and slowly mix just until evenly dispersed into the batter.
  4. Add the batter to the lined cupcakes and fill to 3/4 full. Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean and free of crumbs. Let cupcakes cool.
  5. While cupcakes are cooling, mix the frosting. With a clean bowl and stand or hand mixer, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Add the cherry syrup and vanilla, and continue to mix until smooth. Gradually add the powdered sugar one cup at a time. (Do this slowly, so you don't end up with powdered sugar everywhere.) Frosting will be thick and creamy. Lastly, add a few drops of red food coloring and thoroughly mix into the frosting to achieve a pink color. Spread or pipe on to the cooled cupcakes. Top with an additional maraschino cherry with stem.
