These Soft Strawberry cupcakes are made using fresh strawberries and paired with yummy Strawberry buttercream.No artificial Strawberry flavor or color is used here. 


For the Strawberry Cupcakes:

All purpose flour
¾ cup
Corn flour
½ tblsp
Baking powder
¾ tsp
Baking soda
¼  tsp
a pinch
Fine granulated sugar(Increase the sugar quantity if you want to make the cupcakes without frosting)
1/3 cup
¼ cup( 50 gms)
Thick curd
2 tblsp
Milk( see note below)
1/3 cup
Vanilla essence
1 tsp
Strawberry Puree(see note below)
3 to 4 tblsp

For the Strawberry Buttercream:

¼ cup
Icing sugar
1 cup
1 tsp
Vanilla essence
½ tsp
Strawberry Puree
2 to 3 tblsp


  • For the Strawberry Puree,Take around 4 to 5 big strawberries in a small mixer jar and blend well so that no big chunks are present.Small chunks are fine.The puree should be thick and not watery.Keep aside.   
  • Preheat oven to 180 º C.Sift the Flour,Corn flour,Baking powder,Baking soda,salt twice.
  • Melt the butter.Take the melted butter and sugar in a bowl and mix well with a whisk.Add the curd,vanilla essence and mix well till sugar is dissolved well.Now add the milk and mix.
  • Add the sifted dry ingredients to this butter-sugar-milk mixture and mix well till there is no lumps.Don't over mix and mixing with a whisk is enough.
  • Add the required strawberry puree to the batter and fold using a spatula.
  • Spoon the batter evenly to a cupcake tray fitted with liners till 3/4 th full. Bake at 180 ºc  for around 18 to 20 mins or till a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Mine took exactly 20 mins to bake.
  • Allow to cool in the tray for 5 mins.Take out the cupcakes from the tray and allow to cool completely before frosting.
Strawberry Buttercream:
  • Take the butter (softened to room temperature) in a bowl and beat using an electric beater for about 5 to 7 mins till the butter becomes pale and fluffy.This step is very important.
  • Now slowly add the sifted icing sugar little by little and beat till all the sugar is mixed well.
  • Add the milk and beat for a minute.Now add the strawberry puree little by little till you get the desired colour,flavour and consistency.Add more icing sugar if the frosting is thin.
  • Frost the cupcake as desired. 
  • The cupcakes are not overly sweet.So increase the sugar quantity especially when making the cupcakes without buttercream frosting.
  • All the ingredients like curd,milk etc must be at room temperature for getting good soft cupcakes.
  • If after adding the strawberry puree in the cake batter the batter is very thick add little milk to get desired consistency as shown in the image above.
  • The above quantity yields 6 cupcakes.
