This absolutely mouthwatering cupcake recipe is one of my most popular creations and is regularly requested by my friends and family. A delicious fresh strawberry sponge topped with vanilla buttercream, melted chocolate and fresh strawberries.

You will need (makes 12 cupcakes):

 

  • 195g plain flour
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 120ml milk
  • Approx. 14 strawberries, mashed
  • 115g unsalted butter or margarine
  • 195g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • Iced Jems Baking Cups – Just £2.50 a pack from IcedJemsShop.com
  • For the topping:
  • 250g unsalted butter
  • 450g icing sugar
  • 2tbsp single or double cream
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • Confetti Sprinkles – Just £2.50 a pot from IcedJemsShop.com
  • 12 strawberries to decorate

 

Start by preheating your oven to approx 160 degrees (I was using a Belling Electric Fan Assisted Oven). Place your baking cups onto a flat tray, if you are using paper cupcake cases you will need a cupcake pan.
Mix your butter and sugar until creamy and smooth, then add the eggs (one at a time) whilst continually mixing on a medium speed.

Sift together the plain flour, baking powder & salt into one bowl, then alternate adding the flour mixture and the milk to the butter and sugar mixture a little at a time until completely combined.
Pour your mashed strawberries into the cupcake batter and fold in with a spatula until you start to see red swirls throughout the mixture.

Transfer the batter to your baking cups or cupcake cases and fill the cups approximately 1/2 – 2/3rds full to allow them to rise. Place on the middle of the shelf of the oven and bake for approx 16 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean when pushed into a cupcake. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

For the frosting, ensure your unsalted butter has reached room temperature, then mix it with the icing sugar and cream until smooth. Transfer to a piping bag and snip off the end so you have a large round hole to pipe from.
Pipe a large swirl of icing onto each cupcake, making sure not to touch the edges of the cake. Next melt your dark chocolate and pour about a tablespoon full onto of the frosting on each cupcake, allowing it to drip down the sides of the frostings and cake.

Finish with a few sprinkles and a fresh strawberry on top of each cupcake, then allow the chocolate to set before serving.
