Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s been ages since I last added a cupcake recipe, so here we go.
These moist strawberry cupcakes have an amazing flavor, you can really taste the delicious strawberries in every bite. I prefer these cupcakes unfrosted, but if you would like a tasty topping I’d go for a chocolate frosting and a fresh strawberry on top.
You can find recipes for various frostings here.
- 2 1/2 cups (320 g) all-purpose flour
- 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup (115 g) butter
- 1 1/3 cup (300 g) regular sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/3 cup (310 ml) whole milk, at room temperature
- 1 1/3 cup (310 ml) strawberry purée
Preheat the oven to 350 ºF (180 ºC).
Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt at least twice.
Put the butter and sugar into a mixing bowl and beat on medium speed for about 3-5 minutes.
Turn down the speed to low and add the eggs, one at a time. Beat between each addition, but do not overmix.
Add the flour mixture, milk and vanilla extract in two additions, then add the strawberry purée.
Line a 12-hole cupcake tray with cupcake paper cases and divide the batter between them.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 18 minutes.
Leave to cool completely.
I wish you all a wonderful day!
Hugs from me to you.

how many strawberries are needed for 310ml?
Hi Melisha, the number of strawberries needed depends on the size of the berries, but you will probably need approximately 400-500 grams of berries.
Hi, love your recipes, u r amazing!! I try to do this cupcake but it did not work, spent more than 25 minutes in the oven and do not baked in the middle 🙁 you can tell me why? the taste was so good! Thanks
Hi Laura, it’s hard to tell why your cupcakes needed more time in the oven, but the reason may be that the stawberry purée used was too runny.
If this happens again, cover the cakes in the oven with a sheet of baking parchment and bake for another 10-15 minutes.
Hi, I was just wondering how many cupcake does this recipe make?
Hi Ayşe, this recipe yields about 18 medium cupcakes.
the strawberry purée contains any sugar or not?
Hi Maria, that is up to you, depending on how sweet you’d like the cupcakes to be. 🙂
