Streusel-Topped Strawberry-Rhubarb Cupcakes
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
cup butter or margarine, cut into small pieces
to 15 fresh strawberries (9 oz)
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
teaspoons baking powder
drops red food color
cup finely chopped rhubarb
cup whipping cream
to 3 fresh strawberries, mashed (2 tablespoons)
Fresh whole strawberries, cut into fans, if desired
Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups, or grease bottoms and sides of muffin cups with shortening and lightly flour, or spray with baking spray with flour. In small bowl, mix topping ingredients with fork until crumbly; set aside.
In blender, place 14 strawberries and the milk. Cover; puree about 30 seconds or until almost smooth. Measure mixture; should equal 1 1/4 cups. If not, add puree additional berries. Set aside.
In medium bowl, mix 2 3/4 cups flour, the baking powder and salt. In large bowl, beat shortening with electric mixer on medium speed 30 seconds. Gradually add 1 1/2 cups sugar, about 1/3 cup at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping bowl occasionally. Beat 2 minutes longer. Beat in egg whites, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla and food color. On low speed, alternately add flour mixture, about one-third at a time, and strawberry mixture, about half at a time, beating just until blended. Stir in rhubarb.
Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling each with about 3 tablespoons batter or until about two-thirds full. Sprinkle each with about 2 teaspoons topping; press lightly into batter.
Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pans; place on cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
In chilled small bowl, beat whipping cream with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold mashed strawberries into whipped cream. Spoon dollop of cream mixture onto each cooled cupcake. Garnish with strawberry fans.
For an easy garnish, place halved strawberries with small mint leaves on top of each cupcake.
