This easy strawberry cupcakes recipe is a GoodtoKnow favourite. A light strawberry sponge is a great way to transform your cupcakes. Top with a simple vanilla frosting for a classic summertime treat. This recipe makes 12 cupcakes and will take around 45 mins to make and bake. These delicious strawberry cupcakes are not only topped with fresh strawberries but have them in the sponge too making them extra sweet and delicious. Top with buttercream or freshly whipped cream for a simple dessert. These strawberry cupcakes are best eaten and served on the day they're made but if you have any leftover we'd recommend storing in an airtight container somewhere cool.
