Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes Recipe
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 eggs (at room temp)
2 eggs whites (at room temp)
2 cups white sugar
3/4 cups buttermilk (at room temp)
1 cup softened unsalted butter
1 tsp vanilla
Juice and zest from 1 lemon
2 cups powered sugar
1 cups unsalted butter
1/4 cups strawberry puree
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together your flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a stand mixer, beat the sugar and butter on med speed until light and fluffy. Add the lemon zest, eggs, and egg whites to your butter mixture and continue to mix on medium.
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together your lemon juice, buttermilk, and vanilla.
Take turns adding some of the flour combination into the mixer bowl, followed by your buttermilk combination. Add some of each mixture until both bowls are empty.
Line your cupcake pan with liners and pour your batter until they are 3/4 full. Bake for 15-18 minutes, depending on how high you’ve made each liner. Allow them to cool for 30 min before frosting.
While the cupcakes are baking and cooling, wash out your mixer bowl to make your frosting. Add powdered sugar, butter and strawberry puree and mix on medium until until light and fluffy. If you feel that it is not stiff enough, add a little more powder sugar.
Add your frosting to a piping bag and frost each cupcake. Slice strawberries in half from the top down to garnish the top of each cupcake.
