As for me, I'm making some fresh strawberry cupcakes for my Valentines this year. (Shhhh ... let's just keep that our little secret.) Even though it's not strawberry season, there seems to be plenty of berries in the grocery store right now for Valentine's Day so I'm taking full advantage. I've dipped a few (hundred) in chocolate and the rest went into these delicious cupcakes.
2¾ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup cake flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
2¼ cups granulated sugar
1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
1 egg white
1 cup whole milk
2 cups finely chopped fresh strawberries
Cream together butter and sugar.
Beat in eggs, egg white and vanilla.
