Watermelon - Recipes Blogs


I heard on the radio this week that this Monday is National Watermelon Day.  I mean...there is just no other fruit more synonymous with summer than watermelon, right"  In honor of Monday's Watermelon Day, I thought we could all use a watermelon treat this weekend...

I'm re-posting my Watermelon Cupcakes for your delicious day.  Make it a watermelon weekend friends!  Happy Friday!

This recipe makes 2 dozen cupcakes.
Shopping List1 box of white cake mix1 1/4 cups pureed watermelon, divided1/2 cup vegetable oil4 egg whitesa few drops of pink food coloring, optional1/2 cup butter, softened2 cups of powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line 2 (12-count) muffin tins with paper liners.  Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat white cake mix, 1 cup pureed watermelon, vegetable oil and egg whites with an electric mixer.  Beat in a drop or two of pink food coloring. Pour batter into prepared muffin tins and bake 19 to 21 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Allow cupcakes to cool in tin about 10 minutes before removing them to wire racks to finish cooling.
Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, beat butter, remaining 1/4 cup pureed watermelon and powdered sugar until blended.  Add more watermelon if the frosting is too thick or more sugar if it's too thin.  Beat in a drop or two of pink food coloring.
Frost cooled cupcakes with Watermelon Frosting.

Store in the refrigerator when not enjoying.
And pssssst: I added a little bit of pink food coloring to both the cupcake batter and the frosting.  You can omit that if you like and then your cupcakes will just be more peach than pink.
