I know it's nowhere near Valentine's Day but that doesn't mean I can't throw a little pastry love to you guys. And on a brownie, no less! Yum yum!
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!
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.
