  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  2. Stir flour, sugar, and baking soda together in a large bowl; make a well in the center. Add water, mayonnaise, strawberry preserves, and vanilla extract to the well and mix until batter is just blended. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups. Press 1 strawberry into each.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when pressed, 20 to 25 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Sift dry ingredients before adding wet ingredients to make cupcakes lighter and airier.

no strawberry extract. yes! i definitely will!!

I really like this recipe because the ingredients are easy to find when strawberries are out of season. I got lots of compliments on them.?

I liked it alot! But when I went to get the ingredients, my friend was like, " What the hell do you need mayo for???" XD
