  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the strawberry extract. Combine the self-rising flour and salt; stir into the batter just until blended. Fold in strawberries last. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups, dividing evenly.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pan set over a wire rack. When cool, arrange the cupcakes on a serving platter. Frost with desired frosting.

To make less dense, I think you should cut down on the butter and eggs (say to 6 tbs of butter and only 1 or 2 eggs) and then make up for the lost moisture with 1/2 c whole milk. When beating together butter and sugar, make you are do it for a good 3-4 minutes. It will get noticeable lighter. Also cut the flour a little bit. Finally, only add a pinch of salt. Enjoy! Read More

I should have read the reviews before making this recipe. I am supposed to be making strawberry cupcakes for a 9 year old's birthday party. These turned out to be delicious muffins but definately NOT cupcakes. It's my own fault for trying a new recipe the day of the party but now I must go buy some cupcakes at the store because there isn't time to make any now. If you want strawberry muffins though these are really good. Read More

Delicious! I tweaked the recipe a bit and had fantastic results. As per another reviewers suggestion, I used only 6 tbs butter and added 1/2 c whole milk (still used 3 eggs!). I baked the cupcakes for the full 25 minutes and they were perfect! Not at all muffiny. Only a couple made it until the next day, and they were still great. We used buttercream frosting and that was a bit heavy for the cupcake, so maybe next time I'll try something new. Can't wait to make these again! Read More

I followed the suggestion of 6TBS butter one egg and I used 1/2 skim milk and a lot of strawberries and vanilla extract. These were still buttery cupcakes even with these lighter adjustments. I made icing with 8oz cream cheese 2 cups powdered sugar and dash of vanilla extract and topped with strawberries. Good like a strawberry shortcake not a typical cupcake flavor or texture. I will make again as they were a hit for my neice's 3rd birthday =) Read More

I've tried making them for the recent mothers day celebration.The texture isn't soft enough for my likings but the taste isn't that bad. Any idea of how to make it more soft and fluffy? Read More

Enjoyed these very much. Didn't have any strawberry extract so I used vanilla and they still turned out. I would go 1/2 cup finely chopped strawberries and I love the fruit and felt the 1/4 cup left me wanting more. Read More

I frosted these with Cara's White Chocolate Sour Cream Frosting. I was a little disappointed that they fell a little when i took them from the oven but that was probably my fault. They still looked really nice though and the texture was wonderful. I prepared them as described by another reviewer and I didn't use the extract but used almost.5 liters of strawberries. Still very moist 2 days later. Read More

These are fantastic! Used for a baby girl shower. To save time I bought vanilla frosting and mixed in leftover strawberry flavor to taste- so yummy! These were gone in a minute. Read More

This is a fun recipe but I let the strawberries drain so it woldn't be "wet". I also made a strawberry mousse frosting and added a strawberry taffy candy for decoration. Read More
