  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ c all purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tbs baking powder

  • 1 c strawberries, finely chopped

Frosting ingredients

  • 1 c unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 to 3 c powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 to 5 tbs strawberry puree

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 12 capacity muffin tin or line the holes with paper cases.
  2. Beat the butter, sugar and vanilla together in a large bowl. Beat until the mixture is pale and creamy.
  3. Add one egg at a time to the butter mixture and beat for about a minute for each.
  4. Combine the flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl.
  5. Add about half of the flour mix and stir or beat it in gently.
  6. Add the milk and stir or beat in gently until just combined.
  7. Add the remaining flour and food coloring if desired, ensuring to not over beat the mixture.
  8. Gently fold in the strawberries and pour the mixture evenly among the prepared tins.
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  10. To make the frosting, cream the unsalted butter until it is pale and creamy.
  11. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and about 3 tablespoons of the strawberry puree. Mix until light and fluffy.
  12. Check the flavor and texture and add more powdered sugar or strawberry puree to achieve the taste and thickness you desire.
  13. Pipe the frosting onto the fully cooled cupcakes and decorate as desired.
