Strawberry Red Velvet Cupcakes From Make It With A Cake Mix

This wasn't a fabulously new recipe, but it was yummy, and Noah especially liked it.  This starts with a cake mix, and I actually used this cupcake mix, so I didn't even make the frosting really.  This made 16 cupcakes, the boys gave them a perfect 10, and each cupcake was 277 calories.  Here's what to do:

1 box red velvet cake mix
2 T flour
3 eggs
1/2 c melted butter, cooled
1/3 c pureed strawberries
1/4 c milk
2/3 c sour cream
1 t vanilla

1/2 c butter, softened
frosting packet or
8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 t vanilla
3-4 c powdered sugar
1/3 c pureed strawberries

Preheat the oven to 350.  Line your muffin tins.
Combine the eggs, butter, strawberries, milk, sour cream and vanilla, and beat.  Sift in the flour and cake mix.  Beat together, then fill the muffin cups and bake for around 17 minutes.  Let cool, then make the frosting by beating everything together and frosting the cupcakes.  Serve.
