Strawberry Cupcakes with Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting

Is there anything better than cream cheese frosting? Ummm…no not really.
Well, maybe this strawberry cream cheese frosting. It is made with fresh strawberries and reminds me of fresh strawberries on cheesecake.

I made the cupcakes with fresh strawberries too.

Strawberry Cupcake Recipe makes 12 cupcakes
1/2 cup salted butter, room temperature

2/3 cup granulated sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla 
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup milk
5 large strawberries pureed/chopped about 2 oz.
Beat butter and sugar, then add one egg at a time followed by vanilla. Blend all together. Blend baking powder with flour then mix in the flour in three additions alternating with the milk. Lastly, stir in the strawberries ( I did not drain the juice off of them)
I love baking in paper nut cups. I filled them just under 1/2 full of batter.
Bake cupcakes at 325 degrees in a lined cupcake pan for 18 minutes.
Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting
1/2 cup cream cheese
1/2 cup butter (room temp)
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar
1 oz  fresh strawberries chopped/pureed (about 3 large ripe strawberries)
If you strawberries don’t have produce juice when purred, add a tablespoon or two of milk
Beat butter and cream cheese, add in powdered sugar, vanilla, and strawberries. 

This is how I prepared the strawberriesI love my little hand chopper for things like this

works really well.
The strawberries were very ripe and juicy, it’s what made these so fresh and delicious tasting. No white strawberries here!

this is the 2 oz I used for the cupcakes.Since I baked the cupcakes less than 1/2 full I was able to put the frosting into the cups and top them off smoothly, then added a strawberry slice on top. I sliced a strawberry and made a V in the top for it to look like a heart.

I love strawberries!



  1. I have been pre-cooking ground beef for a long time – it is just so much easier to do it once and be done with if for a while. Sometimes I cook a batch that is just plain ground beef – and then I’ll do another batch and add green peppers and onions. I also store mine in freezer zip lock bags due to the storage issue – much easier to store flat.
