Recipe provided by Kitchen McCabe


  • 2 cups Kodiak Chocolate Chip Power Cakes Flapjack & Waffle Mix
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup avocado or vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup + 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • 8 ounces salted butter, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 6 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 1/4 cup freeze-dried strawberries, crushed
  • Fresh strawberries, to top


  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F. Line a muffin tin with 12 cupcake liners.
  2. Place the Kodiak mix, baking powder, and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Whisk to combine.
  3. Add the egg, sour cream, oil, and 2/3 cup milk to the dry ingredients. Whisk until a smooth batter forms.
  4. Divide the batter equally between the 12 cupcake liners.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Remove from the oven and let sit for 1 minute. Transfer cupcakes to a wire rack and cool completely.
  7. Place the softened butter, vanilla, half the confectioner’s sugar, and freeze-dried strawberries in a large mixing bowl. Beat together with an electric mixer until a thick paste forms.
  8. Add the 3 tablespoons milk and the remaining confectioner's sugar and beat in until combined. Move the speed up to high and beat for another minute until whipped and smooth.
  9. Spoon the frosting into a piping bag fitted with desired tip and pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes. Top each cupcake with a slice of fresh strawberry. Store in an airtight container.
