Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 16
  • ¾ cup + 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • ½ cup cake flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 6 egg whites, at room temperature
  • 2½ Tbsp warm water
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ tsp cream of tartar
  • 1½ cups heavy whipping cream
  • 6 oz cream cheese, softened
  • Half of a 1.5 oz bag of freeze dried mixed berries
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • Fresh strawberries, blueberries or raspberries
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a food processor, pulse sugar until super fine, about 2 minutes. In a mixing bowl, sift together half of the sugar, the cake flour and the salt.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together egg whites, water, vanilla and cream of tartar until well combined, about 2 minutes. Add remaining sugar to mixture, until medium peaks form. Sift just enough of the flour mixture in to evenly dust the top of the egg white mixture and using a spatula gently fold flour layer into egg white mixture and continue this process until all of the flour mixture has been incorporated.
  4. Divide batter among paper lined muffin cups, filling each cup nearly full. Bake in preheated oven 18 - 20 minutes until golden and toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool completely then spread Cream Cheese Whipped Cream over cupcakes just before serving and top with fresh fruit.
  5. For the Cream Cheese Whipped Cream Topping: Pulse half of the bag of freeze dried fruit in a food processor or coffee grinder until fine. In a mixing bowl whip heavy cream until soft peaks form. In a separate mixing bowl, whip cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add cream cheese to whipped cream along with powdered sugar and whip until stiff peaks form. Add in the ground fruit and mix until well incorporated. Store in refrigerator.
