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.

    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


      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.

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚

      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?
