Melt in your mouth Strawberry Cupcakes

I have always loved strawberries. Growing up, they were my favorite fruit. I’d always get a bunch of them when they were in season, wash and cut them, and cover them in sugar. Duh! Then I’d have them ready to eat everyday after school.

So naturally I am a big fan of a good strawberry cupcake as well. And these puppies don’t disappoint.

The strawberry speckled cake and the light strawberry icing just melts in your mouth. I could eat these all day long.

My husband, who is not a big sweets person (I know, crazy right!?), is one of my taste testers. I know. That seems weird since I just said he’s not a sweets person. But he’s great at giving me his honest opinion and if he tells me it’s good, just too sweet, I totally ignore him :). There’s no such thing as too sweet.


When I took a forkful of this cupcake to him to taste, he immediately stopped what he was doing, gave me a wide eyed look, and said “That is gooooood.” He then followed me to the kitchen to come get his own. No joke. And I couldn’t blame him. Like I said, this recipe doesn’t disappoint. Not if you like strawberry. Whether you like things super sweet or not, this delivers.

So here you go! Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for the trackback!!! Glad you loved the recipe 😀

  2. Hi

    How many cupcakes do this recipe make. And what is strawberry puree?

    • Hi Jackie – this recipe should make about 24 cupcakes. Strawberry puree is made by putting strawberries in a food processor and pulsing a bit to get kind of like a strawberry juice, but with bits of strawberry in it. Does that help?

  3. I made this for my Niece’s Birthday yesterday…. and it was a hit!!! BIL said it was the best icing he’s ever had. And Niece loved it… she loves strawberries. I made this into a cake instead of cupcakes. Was so nice and moist. I was worried it may be to heavy of a cake, with milk and sour cream, but it wasn’t… turned out so well. TY for sharing it :)

  4. These look so good!! I was just wondering if these are ok If you make them a day before? Also do you have the measurements in cups instead of ounces

    • says:

      You can definitely make them a day ahead. They are very moist. And I’m sorry, I don’t have the measurements in cups. You can probably google the amounts though.

  5. Holy Moly! These look deeee-lish!
