Strawberry & Cream Cheese Coffee Cake Cupcakes



I have to admit...I love coffee cakes!  I wanted to make one the other day and my daughter also requested cupcakes.  Since I didn't want to make two different desserts, I decided to make Coffee Cake Cupcakes.  They came out wonderful!  I love that you can share this dessert and you don't have to worry about cutting it into individual servings.  These would make a wonderful addition to brunch, a tea party, or actually any occasion.  I can't wait to make these with different flavored preserves!   


Ingredients are as follows:

batter:
2 C flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 C sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c butter, cold and cubed
3/4 C half-n-half

filling:
8 ounces cream cheese
1/3 C sugar

4 Tbsp. strawberry preserves

topping:
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 C flour
3 Tbsp. butter, softened

icing:
2 ounces cream cheese
1/4 C powdered sugar 
2 tsp. half-n-half 



Directions: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees; line cupcake pan with liners.


Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt.


Add cubed butter.


Cut in the butter until it resembles small crumbs. 


Add the half-n-half; stir until just combined.


Divide the batter evenly amongst the 12 cupcakes.


Make a "well" into the center of each; set aside.


Cream together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth.


Place a dollop of filling into each "well".


Add a teaspoon of preserves into the center of the filling; set aside.


Combine brown sugar, flour and butter.  Mix until crumbly.


Sprinkle a spoonful onto each cupcake.


Bake for 20-22 minutes; until lightly brown.  Allow to cool.


Mix together the cream cheese, powdered sugar and half-n-half.


Once the coffee cake cupcakes are cool, drizzle on some icing.


Take a bite and enjoy!
