  • Cupcake
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • Frosting
  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup sliced strawberries
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners and set aside.
  2. Combine all cupcake ingredients in a large bowl and beat with an electric or stand mixer on low for 30 seconds, scraping the bowl several times. Beat on high for 3 minutes, scraping the bowl occasionally. Spoon into cupcake liners and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden.
  3. To prepare the frosting beat the butter in a large bowl until pale and fluffy. Stir in the powdered sugar.
  4. In a small bowl mash the sliced strawberries and add to the butter mixture. Beat until the frosting is smooth and spreadable. If frosting is too thick beat in a little milk a few drops at a time. If the frosting is too thin beat in a small amount of powdered sugar.
  5. Frost the cupcakes when completely cooled.
