Ok, now my hubby is a HUGE fan of Alton Brown and his show Good Eats on Food Network. He is all about science and food, if you havent ever seen the show.
He made this recipe:
OMG! I tweaked it just a bit, and used the vanilla recipe and made strawberry instead. I used a container of frozen sliced strawberries. I substituted the water for the strawberry juice after the strawberries defrosted. I also added about 1/2 cup of finely diced strawberries to the mix.
IT WAS THE BEST! Everyone RAVED over these cupcakes! I just frosted with a little vanilla bean buttercream (my own creation) in a little swirl, and everyone went crazy! You have gotta try it!
I saw the show since I am a Good Eats junkie as is my DH. As soon as I saw it I wanted to make cupcakes but I have to wait until this weekend cause no time! I am gload to hear it worked so well and I love the strawberry idea...I might have to use that.

I saw that too! I love Alton Brown! Thanks for sharing your tweaked recipe, it sounds delicious!
we don't have the show here, but the recipe sounds great, I'll try it, thanks for letting us know
My hubby has set up our TiVO to record Good Eats everytime it comes on! Hes a huge science/computer/nerd/geek, so it actually gets him interested in cooking with me, which is nice for me.
i think alton brown is just really funny. hes like a mad sciencetist
