Gooey Butter Cupcakes with Lemon and Strawberries

If you want something ooey and gooey, but with a little class, try these Gooey Butter Cupcakes with Lemon and Strawberries!!! Talk about fruity deliciousness! And aren't they beautiful? Read on to see the recipe!

1/2 cup of butter

1 box of yellow cake mix
3 eggs

8 oz of cream cheese

1/2 teaspoon of almond extract

4 cups of confectioners sugar

2 lemons

 Preheat oven to 350. Using cooking spray (Pam) spray a cupcake tin and the cupcake liners you intend to use, the batter sticks to anything and everything otherwise.  
Melt the butter, then mix it, along with one egg, into the cake mix to form a bulky dough. Press the dough into the prepared cupcake papers.
In a large bowl mix the cream cheese, almond extract, remaining 2 eggs, and sugar until thick and creamy. Spread over the tops of the yellow cake.
Bake at 350 for about 25-30 minutes or until brown on top. Allow cupcakes to cool. Cake will be gooey on top so be sure to not over bake.
Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the cupcakes and serve with strawberries.

These are very rich cupcakes, so the lemon juice serves to counteract the sweetness and yields a beautiful masterpiece!
