REALLY Real Strawberry Cupcakes

Rating: 4.5 stars 56
I've been messing around trying to make a perfect strawberry cupcake to go with the Real Strawberry Frosting I developed a couple of years ago. It's been a long road and lots of cupcakes tested and tasted along the way. The trick was NOT using puree as I do when making the frosting. Rather, grinding freeze-dried strawberries into a powder brought this cupcake recipe out of my test kitchen and into my recipe box! I am so pleased with the results!

These are the most moist cupcakes I have ever had. It is more of an adult cupcake, as it is not piled with frosting. The glaze on top gives just enough sweetness and flavor!
