Strawberry Cupcake Recipe by Creative Team Member Jesseca from One Sweet Appetite // I have been on the hunt for the perfect fresh strawberry cupcake for years. It seems like almost every one I try has turned out dense, sunken, or dry. Luckily I never gave up and found a recipe that was intriguing enough for me to give it another try! These little cakes are to DIE for amazing. Light, moist, and full of strawberry flavor. I think the secret is keeping your berries diced nice and small. It spreads them out and keeps t hem from sinking to the bottom of the cake. Strawberry Cupcakes 2-3/4 C. flour 1 Tbsp. cornstarch 1 Tbsp. baking powder 1 tsp. salt 1 C. butter, at room temperature 2-1/4 C. sugar 1-1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract 3 large eggs plus 1 large egg white 1 cup buttermilk 2½ cups finely diced strawberries Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line two muffin tins with paper liners and set aside. Whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside. Cream together the butter and sugar. Add your vanilla and eggs + white, one at a time. Mix until fully incorporated. Slowly stir in the flour mixture and buttermilk. Fold in the strawberries. Fill each cup 3/4 full with batter. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely then top with your favorite frosting! Super simple, and delicious! I topped mine with a Strawberry Swiss Meringue Buttercream that is out of this world amazing! The flavor of the cake combined with the silky frosting is perfection. Great for a sweet snack on these warm summer nights. The great thing about this recipe is how easily you can change the flavor! Substitute the strawberries for blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries!
