For the Cupcake Batter
1 1/2 cups cake flour
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 cups sugar
4 eggs at room temperature
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup undiluted evaporated milk
For the Raspberry Compote
2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
1/3 to 1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp corn starch
1 ounce water
For the Cream Cheese Frosting
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup cream cheese
3 1/2 cups icing sugar, powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
a little milk
To prepare the cupcake batter
Sift together the flours, baking powder and salt and set aside.
Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Beat in the vanilla extract.
Gently fold in the dry ingredients in three equal portions, alternately with the milk.
When adding dry and wet ingredients alternately in any baking recipe, always begin and end with the dry ingredients.
Pour batter evenly into paper lined muffin pans.
Bake in a 325 degree F oven for about 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Watch them carefully, you will not want to over bake these cupcakes, as soon as the toothpick comes out clean, remove the cupcakes from the oven and let them cool completely on a wire rack once you have removed them from the pan.
To prepare the Raspberry Compote
Slowly simmer the berries and sugar over low heat for about 10 minutes.
Dissolve the corn starch in the water and slowly pour into the boiling berries stirring constantly until thickened. Cool completely to room temperature.
To prepare the Cream Cheese Frosting
Blend together the cream cheese, vanilla extract and butter, then slowly add the icing sugar adding a little milk (a tablespoon or two) with it until all the icing sugar is used and the icing is a smooth, creamy, spreadable consistency. Use only enough milk to get it to this point.
To fill and frost the cupcakes
When the cupcakes are completely cool fill them with Raspberry Compote. Using a piping bag with a large star or a large round piping tip, fill the center of the cupcakes from the top pushing the tip to the middle of the cupcake and squeezing as you retract the tip. Do not overfill.
Pipe or spread the cream cheese frosting over the top of the cupcakes after they are filled.
