Sprinkles Strawberry Cupcakes

Lately, I have been in withdrawal from the lack of Sprinkles cupcakes in my life so I thought their strawberry cupcake recipe would be perfect to bake for Valentines Day. I promise that the cupcakes are super easy to make and are so yummy.  Hopefully, this inspires you to bake these cupcakes for that special someone for Vday.
Enjoy!

Cupcakes
Ingredients:
 
o   2/3 cup fresh or frozen whole strawberries (thawed if frozen)
o   1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour , sifted
o   1 tsp. baking powder
o   1/4 tsp. coarse salt
o   1/4 cup whole milk , room temperature
o   1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
o   1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter , room temperature
o   1 cup sugar
o   1 large egg , room temperature
o   2 large egg whites , room temperature
 
Instructions:

o   Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake liners; set aside.

o   Place strawberries in a small food processor; process until pureed. You should have about 1/3 cup of puree. Add a few more strawberries if necessary, or save any extra puree for frosting; set aside.

o   In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In a small bowl, mix together milk, vanilla and strawberry puree; set aside.

o   In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter on medium-high speed, until light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar and continue to beat until well combined and fluffy. Reduce the mixer speed to medium and slowly add egg and egg whites until just blended.

o   With the mixer on low, slowly add half the flour mixture; mix until just blended. Add the milk mixture; mix until just blended. Slowly add remaining flour mixture, scraping down sides of the bowl with a spatula, as necessary, until just blended.

o   Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups. Transfer muffin tin to oven and bake until tops are just dry to the touch, 22 to 25 minutes. Transfer muffin tin to a wire rack and let cupcakes cool completely in tin before icing.

 

 

Strawberry Icing

Ingredients:
o   1/2 cup whole frozen strawberries, thawed
o   1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, firm and slightly cold
o   Pinch of coarse salt
o   3 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
o   1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

 

Instructions:

o   Place strawberries in the bowl of a small food processor; process until pureed.

o   In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together butter and salt on medium speed until light and fluffy.

o   Reduce mixer speed and slowly add confectioners’ sugar; beat until well combined. Add vanilla and 3 tablespoons strawberry puree (save any remaining strawberry puree for another use); mix until just blended.
