Using store bought cake mix is such a great base for bringing fun seasonally fresh treats to the table. Scratch made frosting using our creamy fresh fromage blanc takes these fresh peach cupcakes to the next level! Fromage Blanc resides in the same fresh cheese tier as ricotta and cream cheese, so it's a fantastic sub when you want to experiment or add a little more tang to a dish. Here we use fresh peaches but any stone fruit would work great.
2 large ripe peaches, peeled, pitted and diced into ½” pieces
Place diced peaches into a bowl, sprinkle with cinnamon and
brown sugar, mix lightly and set aside.
Mix vanilla cake mix according to directions. Place cupcake
liners into a cupcake pan and fill 2/3 full with batter. Add 1 tablespoon of
the diced peaches to each cupcake. Bake as directed, and let cool.
In a medium bowl, add 8 oz Apricot Honey Fromage Blanc,
butter, vanilla, and 1 cup powdered sugar. Mix with a hand or stand mixer until
creamy and fluffy. Add additional powdered sugar to desired sweetness.
