Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes are a homemade, easy and delicious recipe. The cupcakes are made with yogurt and topped with a fresh strawberry and whipped cream frosting. So delicious.
So if you have noticed lately I have been over indulging in the chocolate department and believe me I still have more chocolate recipes waiting in the wings! “Whether you like it or not. 😉
I have to say of all the sweet recipes on this blog the most popular in my house is my Easy Yogurt Cake. My eldest daughter (who arrives home for a visit in 2 weeks Yayyy!) has always declared it her favourite cake.
And the Italian, well the Italian as long as it is dunkable, he won’t complain.
And then comes my youngest who decided a few weeks ago that I had to make it with strawberry yogurt and also cupcake size and wouldn’t a nice strawberry frosting be perfect? As you can tell strawberries are her favourite fruit.
Homemade Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes
So I made these Homemade Strawberries and Cream Cupakes, and they really were delicious!
I used strawberry yogurt in the cupcakes, and I also cut back on the sugar.
While the cupcakes were cooling…
I cleaned some large strawberries and I blended them. Then I made some Stabilized Whipped Cream, when it got to the soft peak stage I added the pureed strawberries and continued to whip the mixture, until it was very stiff.
By that time the cupcakes were nice and cool and just waiting to be frosted. If you notice I even forgot to add sugar to the whipped cream and strawberry frosting. If your strawberries are nice and ripe they really don’t need any extra sugar.
I have to admit this is one Amazing Cake Recipe that can be made into a thousand different desserts. And these Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes are just one of them. Fast, easy and really delicious. Enjoy!
