Recipe Notes & Tips

  1. Keep an eye on the oven when baking your cupcakes and remove them when you feel like they’re ready, whether it’s at the 10-minute mark or 12-minute mark. You can use a fork to check the center to make sure these cupcakes have baked all the way through.
  1. If you want to add a slightly chocolate touch to the cupcakes, you can use a bit of cocoa powder in the cake batter mixture.
  1. Chocolate shavings are a great addition to this recipe. You can shave pieces of your favorite bar of chocolate using a cheese grater! You can also use shredded coconut.

Variation of the Strawberry Cupcakes

  • If you’re not a fan of strawberries, you don’t have to add them to this recipe. You can omit them altogether or replace the pieces of strawberries with a different fruit, such as pineapple, raspberries, or blueberries. If you don’t want to use fruit, feel free to use pieces of chocolate, such as mini chocolate chip morsels.
  • You can switch up the flavor of the frosting by adding different extracts to it, such as almond, vanilla, or even peppermint extract, depending on what you like best and believe would taste good with the specific type of cupcakes you’ve decided to prepare.

    Haha! Lack of will power will just be waiting for them to cool off before frosting them. The recipe also makes one jumbo cupcake if you ever want to use that as a birthday cake! It's perfect.
