Strawberry Cupcakes with Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting.

fresh strawberry cupcakes recipe

Strawberry Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting...these cupcakes not only look cute but are very soft and super delish..My family prefers vanilla /fruit cakes over chocolate..So made these lovely cupcakes for them..I had some frosting left from my red velvet cupcakes ,so used it to frost this..
Fresh Strawberry adds a very nice flavour and taste to these cupcakes if you do not have fresh strawberries you could add preserve/coulis.. as well ..For the frosting i added little strawberry crush for the colour and flavour as well.

  • For the strawberry cream cheese frosting I used the leftover frosting from red velvetcupcakes.
  • I just added a tablespoon strawberry crush and mixed and then piped it using a 2d tip.

1/4 cup milk + 1 tsp vinegar/lime juice = butter milk
if you don't want to add egg,skip and add 1/2 cup buttermilk in place of 1/4 cup
you can use whipped cream frosting to decorate them as well
if you don't have strawberries/crush/preserve just add the strawberry essence and 1 tbsp strawberry custard powder instead of cornflour.
