Ooh just think about how extra sweet and juicy the berries get when they warm up a little bit in the fryer! I'm not usually a huge proponent of frying everything I can get my hands on, but a tart, crisp berry in a crispy light layer of fried batter is irresistible!
After the holiday weekend indulgences I've been through, I'm looking forward to some lighter fare. Of course this is still a dessert and not exactly as healthy as a salad, but don't fresh berries sound amazing right now?
We have several trays like this in my home. Trays that are PERFECT for a romantic breakfast in bed. Have I ever found a lovely romantic breakfast in my bed? No. I have not. Though there was that one time I was really sick and got soup in bed. I guess that counts.
I like the move to include bits of real strawberries in the frosting on these cupcakes. I bet it's light and fluffy and not too sweet and has just the right little tart edge. If I drool on my keyboard one more time it's gonna break again.
