Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes Recipe

I love the summer time. Fruits and vegetables are ready to be picked and are as tasty as they are vibrant. One of my all time favourites snacks ever is strawberries and cream. Not only is it refreshing, but it is also healthier than most snacks that you can pick. With that being said, I decided I wanted to make Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes.

Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes Recipe

Freshly Picked Strawberries

Something about the tanginess of the strawberries mixed with the sweetness of the cream, it makes my taste buds explode. One day sitting at home with my teens, we decided that we were bored and wanted to go somewhere. Our local strawberry patch has just opened, so we packed ourselves up and headed to the berry fields.

Once we got back, I had to try and figure out what to do with all of these strawberries that we picked. Trust me, there were a ton of them! Some were short and plump, some were long and thing, and some were simply perfect. Recently, I cannot get enough of making cupcakes. I love to go in the kitchen, start a mix from scratch and make a delicious cupcake. It is so rewarding. You are just going to love my cupcakes! They are so easy to make!

Cupcakes are one of the easiest desserts to make. This is how to make my Strawberries and Whipped Cream Cupcakes:

How To Make Strawberry Cupcakes From Scratch

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake pan with paper liners.

Step 2: Sift flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl.

Step 3: Beat butter on high for 30 seconds. Add sugar, vanilla and strawberry extract to the butter until well combined. Add egg whites, one at a time, mixing after each. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each.

Step 4: Add flour mixture to the wet mixture; alternating with the buttermilk on low speed until it is thoroughly blended. Scoop the batter into the lined cupcake holders till 2/3 filled.

Step 5: Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Step 6: Cool for 10-15 minutes. Remove to a wire rack until fully cooled.

Frosting Ingredients

  • 1 cup Butter (room temperature)
  • 4 + cup Powdered sugar
  • 4 TBSP Heavy whipping cream
  • 10 Fresh strawberries, pureed

How To Make Strawberry Puree

  1. Add 10 fresh cut washed strawberries (with stem removed ) to a food processor.
  2. Puree until done.

How To Make Frosting

Step 1: Beat butter until creamed. Add powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time. Cream both until light and creamy. If not creaming slowly add a little whipping cream.

Step 2: Add pureed strawberries. Mix the strawberry puree with the butter and powdered sugar.

Step 3: Test to see if the frosting can make and hold a stiff peak. Test by pulling out a spoonful of frosting holding it upside down. If it doesn’t drop then your frosting is done. If not add 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Test again to make sure the frosting can make and hold a stiff peak.

Step 4: Spoon frosting into a pastry bag with a frosting tip. Twist open end to push frosting to the tip. Frost cupcakes.

Step 5: Add decoration of your choice to the frosted cupcakes.
