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.
Fresh Strawberry 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
Add dry ingredients in batches, alternating with milk.
Stir strawberries into batter.
Bake 22 minutes at 350. (My batter made 14 jumbo cupcakes.)
Happy (early) Valentine's Day to all of you and much love from your favorite blogger. (hehehe)
