Cheesecake Filled Strawberry Cupcakes

One year ago, my best friend gave birth to the most beautiful baby girl ever! Camille is such a sweetheart and to celebrate, her mom made these wonderful cupcakes. And wow, sugar rush! Camille practically inhaled them. Think she liked it! Surprisingly she actually managed to get about 95% of it in her mouth as opposed to on her. :-)


1 strawberry cake mix
2/3 cups yogurt or sour cream
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
2 eggs

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Fill prepared cupcake tins 3/4 of the way full.


8 ounces cream cheese, softened
6 ounces vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup granulated sugar

In a medium bowl, cream with cream cheese, yogurt and sugar together until smooth.

Drop a large tablespoon of the filling in the middle of each of the cupcake batter. (Do not push down.)

Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the frosting


8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup strawberry preserves
1 cup powdered sugar

In a large bowl, mix with an electric mixer, the cream cheese and preserves. Add the sugar in batches and cream until smooth. Top the cooled cupcakes.
