This weekend at the grocery store Andy and I found some monster strawberries that we couldn't pass up - and what better to make they Strawberry Cupcakes with them. I've used a few different Strawberry Cupcake recipes in the past and would say this is one my favorites because it is not overpowering in flavor and not too sweet. Here's what you'll need:
Ingredients - Cupcakes:
1 Box French Vanilla Cake Mix
1 Cup Water
1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
3 Egg Whites
1/2 Cup Pureed Strawberries blended in blender
Mix and Bake for 18 Minutes at 350 Degrees
Ingredients - Strawberry Frosting:
5 Cups Powdered Sugar
2 Tsp Lemon Juice
1/4 Cup Pureed Strawberries
1 Stick of Butter
For the icing - First beat the butter until creamy, then add the lemon and already pureed strawberries. After they have blended, add the powered sugar slowly giving the icing time to fluff and then get stiff.
Voila! Nothing fancy but the perfect cupcake for those who want a little something light for those upcoming warmer days. Enjoy!
