Strawberry Cupcakes

Strawberry Cupcakes

Strawberry Cupcakes are soft, fluffy, and topped with the most delicious strawberry buttercream. Loaded with fresh strawberries, this easy treat is perfect for spring and summer!

I’m generally not a huge cupcake fan because of the overly sweet frosting, but with this strawberry cupcakes recipe, it’s definitely worth the taste (and not overpoweringly sweet).

The strawberry frosting is made with freeze-dried strawberries and the cupcake batter is made with fresh berries that make the tastiest fresh strawberry puree.

And if you’re wondering what gives the cupcakes that pretty, red coloring (besides from the pureed strawberries), it’s from strawberry powder. Or, more specifically, strawberry jello powder. It enhances the taste just a bit, which results in a delicious strawberry flavor, with no red food coloring used.

The cupcake itself is moist and fluffy, with a subtle fresh strawberry flavor. And the creamy strawberry buttercream frosting is light and fluffy, while bursting with flavor. Mmm mmm good!

  • ¾ cup fresh strawberries, (chopped)
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons strawberry jello powder
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, (softened)
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil, OR melted coconut oil
  • ¾ cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste OR vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup milk, any kind, (I used 2%)

  • ½ cup freeze-dried strawberries
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, (softened)
  • 1½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste OR vanilla extract
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
