  • 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar 
  • 1 cup corn 
  • 2/3 cup (11 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature 
  • 1/2 cup milk, at room temperature

Directions

For the graham cracker crumbs: Mix the graham cracker crumbs and granulated sugar together in a medium bowl. Stir in the melted butter with a fork until the crumbs are well coated.

For the cake batter: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F; line a cupcake pan with 12 liners.

Using an electric mixer, cream together the cake flour, brown sugar, corn, butter, milk, strawberries, baking powder, vanilla, baking soda, salt and eggs.

Scoop the batter into the cupcake liners, sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon of the graham cracker crumbs and bake until cooked through, 20 to 22 minutes. Let the cupcakes cool completely before frosting.

For the frosting: Using an electric mixer, cream together the confectioners' sugar, cream cheese, butter and vanilla until fluffy.

To assemble: Core out the center of each cupcake and fill with some of the chopped strawberries. Top each with some of the frosting, and a few chopped strawberries.
