Raspberry Butter Cream, Vanilla Creme Filling & Chocolate Cupcakes...AMAZING!!!!

Chocolate Cupcakes

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda...
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup 1 stick butter softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1/4 cup plain sour cream or yogurt

Cream butter sugar and sour cream together add eggs then add the dry ingredients. Line cupcakes

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Bake aprox 19 minutes

Raspberry Butter Cream

1 cup softened butter
1 cup raspberry puree (put through strainer so you get no seeds) I made this by using my mini food processor
1 tsp vanilla
2 pounds of powdered sugar

 Vanilla Cream Filling
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

(I doubled this)

In a small saucepan, whisk flour into milk until there are no lumps. Heat milk and flour on Medium Low heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens to a gravy consistency. Remove from hot pan into a cool bowl and cover with saran. Allow to cool to room temperature. A cool water bath or refrigeration will speed up this process.

In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and granulated sugar about 4 minutes. Add cooled milk-flour gravy and beat until fluffy and granulated sugar is dissolved completely, about another 7 minutes. Be sure to scrape your bowl and beater so that the grains of sugar at the top will be beaten in and dissolved and add vanilla . If in doubt, whip more. It gets to look like thicked whipped cream and is amazing!!!
