Happy Valentine Cupcakes w/ Strawberry Hearts

I take my standard Banana Nut Bread recipe and add, bourbon soaked dried fruits (cranberry, sultana,raisin, apricot) and chocolate chips.  The cupcake is topped with cream cheese icing, shaved chocolate and a half a strawberry in the shape of a heart.

Very romantic, sweet and delicious for the ones you love.

bake tday.  My wife said the electrical bill was high for some reason and wanted to know how often a week I was heating the oven to 500 F for one hour to bake bread.  So am building levains, posting, getting needed ingredients for future bake-o-rammadamas.  I need to do KA's hamburger bun recipe soon.  I feel a burger in my future :-)

Thanks for the kind words and you are correct - they are yummy!

Happy Baking!

Those sounds like they are full of good things, love that your heart is a strawberry rather than a mound of sugar-based frosting!

to be refrigerated so the strawberries work as hearts and stay fresh.  These don't last very long.  I use the exact same recipe for sheet cakes and layer cakes too.  The frosting, which I do mound and very much sugar based for sure, makes it a very nice cake anyway :-)
