    • Ingredients for Strawberry Buttercream:
    • Adapted from 125 Best Cupcake Recipes by Julie Hasson
    • Makes enough to frost about 16 cupcakes
    • 2 cups confectioner's sugar
    • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
    • 1/4 cup strawberry puree
    • 1/2 teaspoon strawberry extract
    • Pinch of Salt
    • 8-12 fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced, for decoration
    • Note: This only made enough to frost about 2/3 of my 2 dozen cupcakes. I had to make a batch and a half to frost them all.

    Directions

    1. Directions:
    2. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 2 standard 12-cup muffin pans with paper liners. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
    3. 2. With an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition; add vanilla, and mix until combined. On low speed, beat in half the flour mixture, followed by milk; end with remaining flour mixture. Mix just until incorporated (do not overmix).
    4. 3. Fill muffin cups with 3 tablespoons of each batter, side by side. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of a cupcake comes out clean, 17 to 19 minutes. Cool cupcakes in pan, 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
    5. Directions for Strawberry Buttercream:
    6. 1. In a bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter until it is light and fluffy. Add strawberry puree, strawberry extract, and salt until well combined. Add sugar, a half cup at a time, and beat until frosting comes together and is light and fluffy, 5 to 7 minutes.
    7. 2. Spread or pipe frosting over cooled cupcakes. Top each with a sliced strawberry.
    8. *Note: This only made enough to frost about 2/3 of my 2 dozen cupcakes. I had to make a batch and a half to frost them all.
