These cupcakes are good, and I would recommend the recipe -but don't follow the directions as they are. For instance: I dumped everything together for the cream filling against my better judgement, and ended up with a mixture that just wouldn't get smooth. Some of the cream cheese stayed separated in tiny chunks and, in my opinion, ruined the texture of the filling. I made the batter following usual baking procedure - cream the butter, sugar and cream cheese, mix in the egg and extract one at a time, then mix all the dry ingredients separately and add them gradually. I would also change the frosting a little: First, blend the butter and vanilla, then add the raspberries, then gradually blend in the sugar, and finally add only about a tablespoon of milk (it was loose enough with just that, maybe because I used fresh berries instead of jam.)
In fact, I could do without the cream filling altogether. I think that this would be a great cupcake with fresh berries stirred into the batter instead.
Overall, try this recipe out if it sounds good, just include more steps in mixing the ingredients.
