Today we’re celebrating our 1 year engagement anniversary. It’s nothing huge to celebrate but it’s undoubtedly a special day for us. Exactly one year ago today, this was happening.

We were in Deep Creek Lake, MD – visiting the snowy Swallow Falls – and he got down on one knee. I had no make-up on, wearing my glasses, shivering, and wearing snow pants. Totally unromantic, yet the best day of my life so far.

In less than 8 months, I’ll be marrying my peanut butter-loving, handyman, huge-hearted soulmate. I’m a little sappy today, forgive me.

Let’s take a break from all this whole wheat business and concentrate on something a little sweeter. Lip-smackin, sunshine sweet strawberry cupcakes made 100% from scratch. With real strawberries. And real whipped cream.

I’m going to be honest with you…

For the past year, I’ve been trying to make a strawberry cupcake from scratch. I even had it originally listed on my Table of Contents for my cookbook. I switched it out with another cupcake at the last minute because I truthfully could not bake a perfectly sweet, fruity, and non-artificial tasting homemade strawberry cupcake. Disaster after disaster after disaster. I felt completely defeated.

But you know what? I couldn’t get this strawberry cupcake ordeal out of my mind. I mulled over ways to perfect this recipe and gave it one more shot this weekend. Call me determined, call me cupcake-crazy, call me whatever. But… I finally conquered it. :)

This fresh strawberry cupcake recipe has been hiding under my nose the whole time.

After trying about 196 ways to bake a strawberry cupcake, I turned to my tried-and-true vanilla cupcake recipe. The same cupcake recipe I use as a base for these, these, this, these, these, and these. If it ain’t broke – don’t fix it. If you have a solid vanilla cupcake recipe in your repertoire, your options are endless.

To make the strawberry version, I simply added fresh strawberry puree, strawberry yogurt, a little more flour to make up for the added liquid, strawberry whipped cream, and here it is. Fresh strawberry cupcakes in all their beauty.

No doubt about it, you’re going to love these cupcakes.

You’re going to start with fresh strawberries. About 4-5 large strawberries and process them into a chunky puree. You’ll have about 1/3 cup puree. Add this with the rest of the ingredients, mixed by hand. No mixer is required to make the cupcake batter. In fact, it’s rare when you need a mixer for my cupcake recipes. (Besides the frosting, of course.)

Divide the batter between 12 cupcake liners, filled about 3/4 of the way full. You may get 13 cupcakes, if you don’t taste the batter like I did…

Taste testing, aka quality control.

At this point, you could fill the cupcakes with a homemade strawberry filling like I did with my Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes. I didn’t take the extra step and fill today’s cupcakes, but let me know if you try it. The cupcakes were plenty “strawberry-y” without filling. Is that a word? It is today.

Homemade Strawberry Whipped Cream

The homemade strawberry whipped cream comes next. Light and creamy on top of the fruity cupcakes – perfection.

Have you ever made homemade whipped cream before? It’s so simple. Take some heavy cream and… whip it. Whip it up with some sugar and 100% fruit strawberry jam. It will take about 4 minutes of high-speed whipping until the whipped cream forms stiff peaks.

Instead of jam, you could make the whipped cream with 1/3 cup of  this homemade strawberry filling.

Frost the cupcakes however you’d like. Nothing fancy, no piping tips – just pile it on top. Finish with fresh strawberry slices. The sprinkles are optional, but what else do you expect from me?

I am beyond excited to conquer the strawberry cupcake! And trust me on this, fresh strawberry cupcakes taste incredibly better than artificial strawberry cupcakes from a box.

And hey, guess what? If you want the strawberry cupcakes to be bright pink, just add a few drops of red food coloring until the batter reaches your pink shade of choice.

Kevin and I will be enjoying a couple of these cupcakes tonight after our fancy home-cooked dinner. And by fancy, I mean… not chinese takeout or a salad or pizza or sandwiches. Celebrating 1 whole year of our engagement! Time flies.

Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes

These fresh strawberry cupcakes are made purely from scratch with real strawberries. Fluffy, moist, and exploding with strawberry flavor! Top them with homemade strawberry whipped cream.

Yield: 12 cupcakes

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes, plus cooling

Ingredients:

Cupcakes

  • 4-5 large strawberries
  • 1 and 2/3 cup + 1 Tablespoon (218g) all-purpose flour (careful not to overmeasure)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup (62g) strawberry yogurt (Greek or regular yogurt)
  • 3/4 cup (180ml) milk* 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Strawberry Whipped Cream

  • 1 and 1/2 cups (360ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 3 Tablespoons (43g) granulated sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup (110g) strawberry jam*

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line a 12-count muffin pan with cupcake liners. Set aside.

Make the cupcakes: Slice strawberries and place in a food processor or blender. Pulse until strawberries are a chunky puree. You should have about 1/3 cup. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt butter in the microwave. Stir in sugar - mixture will be gritty. Stir in egg, yogurt, milk, and vanilla extract until combined.

Slowly mix dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until no lumps remain. Fold in the strawberry puree. Batter will be thick.

Divide batter among 12 cupcake liners and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting.

Make the strawberry whipped cream: In a large bowl, whip the cream, sugar, and vanilla extract together on high speed until stiff peaks begin to form, about 4-5 full minutes.  Add the strawberry jam and continue to beat for another 30 seconds. Add more strawberry jam if you'd like a stronger flavor or if you'd like a pinker color. Please note the whipped cream will be thinner the more jam you add.

Frost the cupcakes with the strawberry whipped cream. Cover and store cupcakes in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Whipped cream may be made 1 day in advance and stored in the refrigerator. Serve cupcakes chilled.

*Recipe tested with unsweetened almond milk and skim milk. Use any milk, dairy or non, that you prefer. 

*Feel free to fill the cupcakes with this strawberry filling and/or use 1/3 cup that homemade strawberry filling instead of the jam in the whipped cream. The jam I used was 100% natural strawberry preserves from the farmer's market, though any strawberry jam would be fine.

    Hi Sally–thanks for this lovely recipe! I’m going to try using it for some baby shower (it’s a girl!) cupcakes. However, the buttercream I’m using is quite sweet so I’m thinking I don’t need the cake to be super sweet. Do you think reducing the sugar will compromise the cake texture/structure? Is this cake not too sweet to begin with? Thanks!

    Reply

    • Sallyreplied on January 30th, 2014 at 5:48 pm

      Hey Karman! I assume you’re not referring to this whipped cream, right? You can definitely reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup. That will be no problem!

      Reply

      • Karmanreplied on February 2nd, 2014 at 1:36 pm

        Thanks Sally! Doubled the recipe (to make 24 cupcakes) and reduced the sugar to about 1.75 cups vs 2 cups and they were a huge hit! The strawberry flavor was subtle but noticeable for sure. I think I pureed the strawberries a bit too much, next time I’ll keep them chunkier! Thanks!!

    Hi Sally,

    These turned out so yummy!! And pink freckles have never looked so better! I have a question though. The heavy whipping cream that you have mentioned for frosting, is it the same as heavy cream that comes in a carton or is it whipping cream that comes in a can with nozzle?
    Keep posting the yummy recipes!! :)

    Thanks,
    Soumya

      Heavy liquid cream in a carton – you’ll whip it to make your own whipped cream (like what comes in a can with a nozzle) – only the homemade kind tastes better and fresh!

      Hey Amanda! That would be easy. Simply double this recipe. Then, fill the 9×13 pan halfway with batter. You’ll have some leftover batter, so you can use that to make a couple cupcakes on the side. I am unsure of the baking time, but it would exceed 35++ minutes at 350. Enjoy!

Ive made them FIVE times since then as they’ve been non-stop requested by my family.

      I fear the cupcakes will be quite heavy and dense using only whole wheat flour. Usually, I test about 20% whole wheat and 80% all-purpose and test until I find the right balance of just enough WW vs all-purpose without sacrificing taste.

    Hi Sally!
    I’ve always thought that room temp butter is better for baking cake, rather than melting the butter completely. But I see in your cupcake recipes that you say to melt the butter. So I was just curious, why do you choose to melt over just softening/ using room temp butter? Do you notice a significant difference in texture/ rise between the two variations? Perhaps I was wrong all along!

    Reply

    • Sallyreplied on April 30th, 2014 at 5:04 am

      I simply developed this recipe so I wouldn’t have to use a mixer. I also feel these cupcakes taste more buttery and moist than moist from the melted butter option. Great question, Jane.

    OH my glob. This recipe is truly fabulous! I am a vegetarian and all the other recipes I found called for gelatin mix which definitely is not vegetarian friendly. But when I found this recipe it was perfect timing, it was just in time for Mother’s Day. I am 17 years old and I have only been baking for about a couple years now (baking is my new favorite thing ever <3) and these were easy to make. I used the recipe to make 7 cupcakes and a medium sized cake in a brownie pan. They are cooling right now and I can't wait to decorate them and refrigerate them. So exciting. Thank you very much for your recipe and I will make sure to try your other ones. :)

    Hi Sally,
    I am a huge lover of your blog. I am wanting to make some
    Cupcakes for a friend, and strawberry lemonade is what I was thinking. I am looking to make your strawberry cupcakes that I love, and was wondering if I should just use a sweet fresh lemonade frosting. Our yogurt shop has strawberry lemonade in stock coincidentally and was hoping you’d have some tips or suggestions I incorporate that into the frosting.

    Thanks!
    Savannah

    Hi Sally,

    Can I use drinkable yogurt instead of the regular one?

    Thanks!

      I’m sure that would be fine.

    HI Sally,

    I tried baking the strawberry cupcakes yesterday, it baked wonderfully on the top, however, inside it was very densed, ended up like a muffin instead of a cupcake. Was wondering if the recipe uses too much liquid ingredients?Did i do something wrong? Looking forward to your reply :) Thanks.

    Hey Sally! Awesome recipe. Would it make a difference if I omitted the strawberry yogurt?

      Yes. Do not omit – though you may use regular plain yogurt or even sour cream instead.

    summertime=fresh strawberries. just made and frosted these babies… absolutely, ridiculously delicious. only problem was that they stuck to the liners so i had to peel and lick every crumb off to get the full serving in my belly.
    worth the struggle, i promise.

    Hi Sally,
    thanks for the amazing recipes. This is the first cake which turned out perfect. My husband loves strawberries and we we went to pick strawberries last weekend , so I used fresh strawberries. I made a 9-inch cake, baked for 30 mins, though I think I should have checked after 25. Anyways, It was a bit brown but not burnt. I filled it with strawberry jam and used the whipped cream recipe as the icing!!! Again, awesome recipe ever! You rock. Thanks again!!!!!

    Hello Sally,
    These cupcakes look amazing and I cannot wait to try them. I’m making them for my daughter’s second birthday party tomorrow. Question… I think I over-pureed the strawberries and I have 2/3 cup instead of 1/3, is this ok, or should I start over?

      Hey Beth! Just add 1/3 cup of the puree if you can – sorry I was not at my computer last night to see this comment.

    These cupcakes were amazing! I want to make that whip topping and just eat it by itself. Thinking of adding some mini chocolate chips to the cupcakes to give that hint of chocolate. Thanks for the great recipes, you always break them down perfectly.

    Hi Sally! I have an abundance of fresh fruit at home right now, so these look perfect!
    Would it be possible to use buttermilk in place of the normal milk?
    Thanks!

    Sally! or anyone who might know –
    I want to make this in the giant Wilton Cupcake Pan. Do you know about how much I would have to make? If I double the recipe would that be enough ? I am making some regular size cupcakes of this too.
    Thank you!

      I’m unsure, sorry Monika. I don’t have that pan.

    My youngest son asked for a strawberry cake for his birthday, so I used this recipe. I doubled the recipe to make a 9×13 cake. Everyone loved it!! Thank you for sharing this!

    Hi Sally, I love your recipes! But for this cupcakes, they need strawberries. And in my country, it’s difficult to find strawberries at this season. Is there anything I can replace it with?
