Raspberry Cupcakes from Scratch

Raspberry cupcakes are filled with raspberry preserves and topped with a fluffy raspberry cream cheese frosting. They’re delicious!

I couldn’t let the whole week go by without a sweet treat!

Last week, I was totally prepared with candy, having Spring and Easter treats all lined up for everyone. This week, I have completely failed. I have no recipes planned to use up the Easter supper leftovers. I have a ham bone in my freezer that I will utilize later, but after the smorgasbord on Sunday, I had to ration my ham recipes.

Don’t get my wrong, I love ham, but I already had things thawing, and can very quickly get overloaded by the same thing a few days in a row. In other words, I had no forethought and had already made a big pot of chili. Duh.

So please forgive me, and make these homemade raspberry cupcakes instead!

I made these raspberry cupcakes for the bake sale at my store, but they didn’t sell nearly as quickly as a cupcake with cookie dough on the inside did. Which was a shame, because these were pretty freakin awesome. I am not a fan of jams or jellies, but it really worked for this cupcake.

I am going to get through the next few days with our pup-sitting, kick my feet up and relax. See you all again on Monday.

Hello, I think I did something wrong. My batter was extremely thick for cupcakes and it was hard to scoop into the muffin tins. When they came out of the oven, they were hard not soft. I followed the recipe but mixed up the buttermilk because it didn't say whether to add dry or mix up like pancakes...was this correct?
