Strawberry Cupcakes

 So let me first preface this post by saying that I don’t cook.  Really, I don’t.  My wonderful husband is the chef in our home and he is a GREAT cook!  I like to try my hand in the kitchen occasionally, but the result is usually a burn of some kind – the scars on my right arm speak for themselves.  But I would really like to get better so here is one such attempt.  I saw this pin last week and thought I can do this and it makes a sweet treat quite a bit healthier!  
I bought a cake mix and we keep Greek yogurt on hand as we eat it and use it in various cooking recipes all the time and we were ready to roll. Instead of using the oil and eggs, use a cup of Greek yogurt.   

This is where I will tell you DO NOT forget to add the cup of water.  I made that mistake and my wonderful chef of a husband caught it as I struggled to make to mix my thick and chunky batter.  Once the water was added, things went much easier.   
I used an ice cream scooper to put the batter in the pan and popped them in the oven for about 20 minutes (be sure to follow the directions on your cake mix). 

Here they are fresh out of the oven.

I put cream cheese frosting on top and viola!  We had cupcakes! Hubby and I both quite enjoyed these little treats!  They are dense but VERY moist!  For a few less calories, they are delicious!
