Strawberry Cupcakes with Fresh Strawberry Frosting

Happy Monday!

It was a rainy, wet and windy weekend around here but I spent it all inside the nice toasty yoga studio, knocking out another 15 hours of teacher training. Friends that are thinking of becoming certified: it’s so much fun but SO time consuming! Be ready to be glued to your mat for six months. Bonus! abs of steel. At least that’s what they tell me. I’m too busy baking and eating cupcakes to notice such things. I’m prettyyyyyy sure eating your weight in strawberry buttercream frosting completely counteracts any potential six-pack. But here’s a secret—I’d rather eat the frosting! Six-packs are overrated…these cupcakes are not. Plus, isn’t the whole point of yoga to be totally present at all times? Let me tell you, I am completely and totally present licking a whisk or taking a big bite of cupcake. THEREFORE, cupcakes = yoga. Amen.

That being said, it goes without saying that my very favorite place in Savannah other than my mom’s yoga studio is Back in the Day Bakery. I adore this little bakery. I want to live in it. I want to sleep in it. I want to quit my job and just work there forever and ever and ever.

Kidding!!!! I would never quit my job. I’d miss you too much.

But trust me on this bakery! It’s the very best. Whenever I visit, mom and I will go take a yoga class and then hit up Back in the Day for lunch and sweets. They also have the best iced chai tea that I’ve ever had. Fact.

Last time when I visited (just the other week!), mom surprised me with this cookbook! It’s brand new and contains recipes for all my favorite treats that I sit and dream about three thousand miles away on a somewhat daily basis.

The food photography is stunning and the recipes are to die for. I couldn’t wait to get home, bust out the butter and start baking!

And what did I make first? These strawberry cupcakes, of course! Both the cupcake and the frosting are jam-packed with bits of fresh strawberries. Trust me, you want to make these as soon as humanely possible.

Just look at the strawberries in the batter! You literally take two cups of juicy whole strawberries, whirl ’em in the blender for a few seconds and then mix them with milk, vanilla and lemon zest before adding to the batter.

And the frosting!!!! Oh, the frosting.

I had some extra after icing the last cupcake so I took to just dipping whole strawberries in it. You know, for the yoga aspect of it.

If you love strawberry shortcake, you’ll go crazy for these! A big thanks to Back in the Day Bakery for such a yummy spring recipe! I can’t get enough.

Strawberry Cupcakes with Fresh Strawberry Frosting

from The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook

makes about 24 cupcakes

Print this recipe!

Ingredients:

for cupcakes—

3 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/3 cups pureed fresh strawberries (from about 2 cups whole strawberries—puree in a blender until smooth)

1/2 cup milk

2 tsp vanilla

2 tsp lemon zest

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

4 egg whites

for fresh strawberry frosting—

4 sticks unsalted butter, softened (1 pound)

2 tsp fresh lemon juice

1/2 tsp sea salt (original recipe calls for fleur de sel, which you can find at specialty shops)

8 cups powdered sugar (from two 1-lb boxes)

1/2 cup pureed strawberries (about 1 cup whole strawberries)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line or grease 24 cupcake tins.

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

Whisk together the pureed strawberries, lemon zest, milk and vanilla in another bowl. Also set aside.

Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and egg whites gradually, beating after each, until combined. Alternate between adding the dry ingredients and the wet strawberry ingredients to the butter mixture, starting and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.

Scoop batter into prepared cupcake tins, filling up 2/3 to 3/4 the way full (depending on the size of your tins…I have really small cupcake tins so I filled mine up all the way). Bake cupcakes for 25 minutes or until golden. Be sure to test using a toothpick to make sure they are completely done in the center. Let cool.

While the cupcakes are cooling, make the frosting! Beat the butter until creamy then add the powdered sugar, lemon juice, sea salt and pureed strawberries. Continue beating (ideally with an electric mixer but you can do this by hand if need be) until very light and fluffy.

Pipe or spread frosting on each cupcake. Enjoy!

Time:

2 hours (includes time to cool)

    High fives for going through all this yoga training and starting down the instruction road! I agree on the six pack thing – sure it’s great to be strong and healthy, but looks aren’t everything and enjoying the little things like great homemade frosting is way more fun than staring in the mirror ๐Ÿ˜‰ The cupcakes look moist and flavorful – I love the heaping amount of frosting on the cakes – you’re too cute ๐Ÿ˜‰

      April 3, 2012 at 4:00 pm

      Hmm…I think so but not sure since I haven’t tried that personally! Frozen berries might be a little too slushy and puree up too liquid-like for the batter. For BEST results, I would stick with fresh berries but you could certainly try frozen as an experiment!

    hi honey!! it’s you crazy sis. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I just decided to make these for Dan’s work today! I actually made a couple changes.

    subbed 1 c. whole wheat pastry flour for 1 c. white
    subbed 1 c. brown sugar for the 2 c. white (we always cut the sugar in recipes in half for Abbi… her blood sugar is just better!)

    then i made it into a regular cake! (9×13) and it was so pretty! I wish i used white sugar, as the brown makes it a bit less pink! Then… for the frosting:

    i just used 1 stick butter, half cup puree’d berries, and then as much powdered sugar as it took to get fluffy. (Dan was my mixer, as i do not own a mixer at the moment!)

    anyways… wallah! After digging a couple tiny pieces out for my fam, D took it into work. Such a yummy, springy surprise! All thanks to YOU!! eeee!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    hug hug hug. I love strawberries and you!

    I love this bakery! I used to live in Savannah and, although it opened after I had moved away, every trip back means a trip to Back in the Day. YUM – SCRUM!

    I made these today for Easter, and they were FABULOUS! Beautiful and so, SO delicious! I had a lot of frosting left over, but that is not a bad thing because it is so tasty. I put it in a freezer Ziploc bag, laid it flat and stuck it in the freezer for later. Thanks for sharing Jenna, these were a huge hit!

    These cupcakes are absolutely delicious. I made the full batch of cupcakes but halved the recipe for the frosting. The frosting was a little sweet for my taste so I added a little cream cheese and thought it was wonderful! I had to refrain myself from licking the bowl! Thanks for the recipe – it’s a keeper!

    I made these cupcakes over the weekend after going to a strawberry farm and picking 8 lbs. of strawberries. I shared them at a Memorial Day cookout, and everyone was raving about the frosting, and I agree, it is awesome! It was so fluffy and light, but still had the buttercream taste I love. I did add about 1/3 cup extra strawberry puree to the icing because I had extra, which made the icing have a stronger strawberry flavor. Next time I make these, I am going to add extra strawberry puree to the cupcake batter, as well. Very solid recipe, thanks for sharing. Amazing!

    My 4 year old wants chocolate cupcakes for his birthday today, and I’m trying desperately to avoid chocolate icing. I did a google search for strawberry frosting (I should really go check now and make sure we still have some strawberries left), and after checking out several, I’ve landed on yours. And I’m going to make it because it came from Savannah. And anything that comes from that enchanting city is sure to be delightful ๐Ÿ™‚

    My daughter has asked for strawberry cupcakes for her birthday party. I stumbled across your website and these cupcakes look like they will be perfect. I need to make the cakes the day before the party and am wondering if I should wait until the day of the party to add the frosting. The frosting looks so light and fluffy. Does it soak into the cupcake as it sits or loose its shape over time? Thank you for sharing this recipe with us!!

    My son wanted strawberry cupcakes for his birthday and I found this recipe. I finally found a recipe that did not have box cake mix listed as one of the ingredients. Anyway, today, March 12th is my son’s birthday and I made these cupcakes and they are to die for!!! They are so good, and the icing. Well, the icing, I do not have words to describe it now. My husband ate one of the cupcakes right out of the oven!!! I will purchase this cookbook. Thank you so much for sharing!!

    I made these a few days ago, and I halved the recipe. They were so ridiculously good, I just have to make more! My boyfriend inhaled like 7 of them in one go and I just had to stop him haha, they were extremely hard to resist. Even without the cream they were amazing! I have tried several of your recipies and all of them have turned out so well, I love the fact that you use such basic and easily found ingredients! Thanks for sharing!
