  • 1 1/2 cups cake flour
  • 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup corn
  • 2/3 cup (11 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup milk, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions
  • For the graham cracker crumbs: Mix the graham cracker crumbs and granulated sugar together in a medium bowl. Stir in the melted butter with a fork until the crumbs are well coated.

  • For the cake batter: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F; line a cupcake pan with 12 liners.

  • Using an electric mixer, cream together the cake flour, brown sugar, corn, butter, milk, strawberries, baking powder, vanilla, baking soda, salt and eggs.

  • Scoop the batter into the cupcake liners, sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon of the graham cracker crumbs and bake until cooked through, 20 to 22 minutes. Let the cupcakes cool completely before frosting.

  • For the frosting: Using an electric mixer, cream together the confectioners' sugar, cream cheese, butter and vanilla until fluffy.

  • To assemble: Core out the center of each cupcake and fill with some of the chopped strawberries. Top each with some of the frosting, and a few chopped strawberries.
