Listen, y’all. I know it’s almost September and that pumpkin and apple recipes are popping up all over the internet, but I don’t really care. I’ve made it through almost a month at my new school, and just before our first day, I made these cupcakes.
I’ve made my fair share of strawberry cake, but my attempts haven’t been without some struggle. Layer cakes I’ve made have turned out undercooked and soggy. Cupcakes have browned to the point that they don’t resemble any shade of pink. And pies, well, pie is a different story.
Anyhow, I was pleasantly surprised with how these cupcakes turned out, and they were just in time for a coworker’s birthday! I hope you enjoy them!
*Note: I tested this recipe as a 2-layer 9 inch cake, and it worked just fine! You can also add some pink or red food coloring to the cake batter before mixing in the strawberries for a bolder color.
