Strawberry Cupcake with Strawberry Frosting


Be prepared for people to ooh and aah over these little beauties. You have to make these! I take back what I said about me not having a sweet tooth. The smell of strawberries wafting in the air while the cupcakes were baking in the oven was too much for my heart to resist.

Okay so I scarfed down 5 of em’ and am making it sound all fancy.

They’re that good. Trust me. You can’t go wrong with this recipe inspired from Amy’s experiment to find the best strawberry cupcake recipe. She’s a winner. Though I did make changes, it doesn’t really matter. They’re alll yummy!  And yes, you have to make the frosting.

No frosting = No yummy cupcakes!


So now,  presenting to you my strawberry cupcake..


He is a cute little bugger isn’t he? (Maybe it’s a she?)



Strawberry cupcake:

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1 large egg
3/4 cup milk mixed with 1 tbsp vinegar OR 1 cup yoghurt (strawberry flavour would be good)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/3 cup fresh strawberries, diced


Frosting:


2  Tbsp. butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup mashed strawberries



First you dice em’

No, first you preheat your oven to about 160 degrees Celsius. Then you dice em’ strawberries. Say hello to my thumb.



Then you make the frosting. Whiz them together.


It should look like this…

And then this…


But not this..

I would know.. ( This is what happens when you start getting really happy whizzing the life out of your frosting. My point is… Don’t! Less than a minute and it should be done! I had to re-do mine!)

You can leave the frosting in the fridge while you go on to make the cupcake.

Now for the cupcake, you just whiz the butter and sugar, then add the egg and the rest of the wet ingredients. Then you just add the dry ingredients… sift it first… or not..

Then, put them in the oven for about 20-25minutes, it doesn’t really turn pink cos I did not mash the strawberries first and no, don’t do that, just add a few drops of red food colouring but it’s really unnecessary as the frosting covers the cupcake  anyway.


You can slice them in half to see what they look like inside.



Just use a spoon to scoop the frosting on. (Those who read my previous entries, that’s my new cupcake liner. Looking at it makes my heart go pitter-pat.)



I stuck a strawberry lollipop in there cos that’s how I roll.

Isn’t it a sight for sore eyes though! Enjoy! (Everyone at my house suuure did!)

Till next time! Ciao bella!


Love,

Nisha♥
