Like any other children, even my kids are fond of cakes and cupcakes. Winter being the best season for strawberries I made these for them as a weekend treat. You woudn’t believe me this is the first time I made cupcakes with strawberries, but look at how good they turned out. Isn’t it?! 🙂 

My kids loved it so sooo much. We finished all the 15 cupcakes in a go!! Do try it for your family too!!

    For the topping, strawberries and powdered sugar mashed up
  • You can top each cupcake with a teaspoonful of this strawberry topping just before serving or you can even have them as it is without any toppingl!! Done!!

Tips:

  • Vegans, can use any plant based milk. But, almond milk works perfectly.
  • You can use vanilla essence in case you do not have strawberry essence.
  • Pink food colour can be skipped and have plain cake colour too.
  • I used brown sugar which is raw i.e. unrefined , so my cupcakes might vary slightly in colour.
  • You can even use just the wheat flour or just the all purpose flour too. (Unlike me)
  • I did not use the white vinegar while making, but still my cupcakes were perfect.
  • I added bits of strawberry pieces (2 to 3) in each cupcake while filling in the tray. 
  • For Vegan cupcakes, you will have to use almond milk. 
  • You can double the ingredients to get double the cupcake count/double size of Eggless strawberry cupcakes.

Result:

  • These, Eggless strawberry Cupcakes are super fluffy.
  • They are filled with lovely smell of the fresh strawberries and flavour too.
