Would love to try Ur recipe for my toddler as he loves strawberrys.could plz share this recipe in grams plz.because my 1cup measure wud b different from yours.plz chef……
Hi! I made this recipe into “cup” measurement as it will be easier. If you have measuring cups at home, you will be fine. Please try using measuring cups. Let me know if you need help.
this is a great recipe, thanks for sharing. curious what do you do with the left over strawberry puree?
The frosting tastes great. I picked it out for it’s simple ingredients, and wasn’t disappointed. I recommend using a high quality butter like Kerrygold. It’s a full-butter recipe, so the better the butter, the better it will taste. It has a subtle strawberry flavor, so if you’re looking for something that’s super strawberry forward , I recommend trying a freeze dried strawberry recipe instead. To other people making the recipe, you can cut the amount of strawberries in half and will still have plenty of puree. Also, if you want your frosting to be more pink but don’t want to use an artificial food coloring, the Suncore Foods Pink Pitaya powder made my frosting bright pink.

You know not all of my recipes are something that I came up with because Of a craving. Sometimes they come about based on the weather that week or the previous week. Sometimes they come about because of a viewer’s suggestion or particular question. Sometimes they don’t come to me at all and I have to reach out to my “Recipe Idea Muse” for inspiration. But this week, this week falls under the I WANT THIS category.
Strawberry Cake along with Strawberry Shortcake or strawberry anything really, is the quintessential taste of summer that I crave where desserts are concerned… especially, special occasions like. oh, sayyyy. my upcoming birthday this Saturday! Now, I’ll be in New York City for the weekend, so if any of you decide to knock out a strawberry cake, you know for a special chef in your life, I would be happy to accept that cake when I return. It doesn't necessarily have to be this recipe, but please go ahead and use this one as your catalyst or inspiration.
With that said, enjoy this easy “All In One” strawberry cake utilizing the freshest most vibrant strawberries of the season. Of course when strawberries aren’t at their peak, like in the winter months, and you are craving strawberry cake… whole frozen berries are your next best option.
The Mascarpone Buttercream Frosting is my way to archive classic “cream cheese frosting” without actually using cream cheese. You can thank Miss Emily Sutton for that little nugget of ingenuity… she does not like cream cheese anything… so mascarpone cheese is my go-to! Lacey doesn’t like pancake syrup, and Lucas LOVES celery. Anyway, enjoy the strawberries and thanks for indulging my birthday inspiration. Cheers and Thank-you! -Chef Scotty
All In One Strawberry Cake
2 1/2 cups pureed fresh or frozen strawberry, reserve 1/2 cup for the frosting
How to Make Strawberry Cupcake Filling
For the filling, I used one of favorite cream fillings. It’s whipped cream with a little cream cheese added and some vanilla extract. Powdered sugar is used both to sweeten the cream and to stabilize it. I often hear people say they reduce the amount of powdered sugar used, but be careful doing that. The cream may not end up being as firm.
I added chopped strawberries to the cream, as well. I LOVE the extra pop of strawberries it gives. It’s a small addition that makes a big difference!
The cupcakes are finished off with the most amazing strawberry frosting! It was declared “the best strawberry frosting I’ve ever had” by all who tasted these cupcakes. So good! It’s made using freeze dried strawberries to give it plenty of strawberry flavor without thinning out the frosting too much from adding a bunch of strawberry puree. If you’d like to go the puree route, you totally can. I have a frosting like that here. But I definitely recommend trying the freeze dried strawberries.
The final cupcake just melts in your mouth! The moist vanilla cupcake, fluffy cream filling with bursts of strawberries and amazing strawberry frosting are a dangerously delicious combination! All who had them totally fell in love and despite my best efforts, I couldn’t resist eating several. These are definitely a new favorite for summer that I know you’ll want to make over and over!
How It&rsquos Made
If you&rsquove never made cupcakes before, start by reading my post on how to make cupcakes.
Start by preheating your oven to 350 F.
In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, sour cream, and vanilla extract until smooth.
Next, in the bowl of a stand mixer (you could also use a regular bowl and a handheld electric mixer), mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, lemon zest, and butter on high speed until fully combined.
Add wet ingredients into dry ingredients a little bit at a time and mix after each addition until they&rsquore just combined.
Mix in milk, again until just combined.
Using fresh strawberries is the secret to perfect strawberry cupcakes. Finely chop them and add them directly to the batter. The better the berries taste, the better the cupcakes will taste.
Tip: Frozen strawberries have much more moisture than fresh strawberries. I don&rsquot recommend substituting frozen strawberries in this recipe.
Stir in the chopped strawberries by hand. Stirring them in by hand ensures that the mixer doesn&rsquot break up the strawberries. Doing this also helps keep you from accidentally overmixing the batter.
Fill cupcake liners halfway full. These cupcakes rise quite a bit during the bake. If you overfill the liners, they won&rsquot bake up as nicely.
If you aren&rsquot sure how high to fill the liners with batter, try baking a single test cupcake first to see how it rises. Then, adjust the fill level accordingly.
Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
Take the hot cupcakes out of the cupcake tin immediately and set them on the counter or a cooling rack to cool to room temperature before frosting.
I always love strawberry frosting on my strawberry cupcakes! This recipe includes my strawberry buttercream. It&rsquos the most popular choice as it is an extremely versatile frosting that doesn&rsquot need to be refrigerated.
Begin by beating butter in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until it&rsquos light and fluffy. That typically takes three minutes.
Next, mix in strawberry puree and salt. I make strawberry puree by putting strawberries in a food processor and running it until I get a thick, seedy liquid.
Mix in powdered sugar a little bit at a time.
Finally, spread or pipe on cooled cupcakes.
