How to Make Strawberry Cupcakes with Fresh Strawberries:
If you want to make strawberry cupcakes, you can certainly find a box of strawberry cake mix at the store and go with that. But the flavor of the boxed mix isn’t going to bring forth the delicious flavor of fresh strawberries. So how do you use fresh strawberries to make cupcakes? In this recipe, you’ll be using frozen strawberries that you will puree. If you have fresh strawberries on hand, you can pop them in the freezer until frozen and then puree them.
Cake flour is used in this cupcake recipe to give it a nice, cakey texture.
Fair warning: don’t taste the cupcake batter. It tastes like strawberry ice cream, and you may be tempted to grab a straw!!
These cupcakes turn out to be a lovely shade of light pink, but I help that process along with a squirt of pink/red gel paste. You can leave the coloring out and the cakes will be slightly pink, but they’re much cuter with a darker tint.
Pink Strawberry Cupcakes are a darling little dessert to serve at little girl’s birthday parties, baby showers and spring and summer celebrations. Everyone loves a good cupcake. And this is a good cupcake!
I frost these with my Wedding Cupcake Buttercream recipe- I highly recommend you try it! Just tint it with a little bit of red gel paste to get a nice pink hue.
