These Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes are double infused with pure strawberry flavor, by adding both fresh strawberry puree and freeze-dried strawberries to both the batter and strawberry buttercream. They are simply irresistible!!
There are strawberry cupcakes, and there are Strawberry Cupcakes! I’m talking about fresh strawberry cupcakes infused with all of the purest strawberry flavor made possible. That’s right. These cupcakes are made of freshly pureed strawberries that have been reduced to their purest form and I didn’t stop there. I added a second dose of pure strawberry flavor with what I call strawberry gold.
For the strawberry puree, I added fresh strawberries to a blender and pureed them. Then I added a little bit of sugar and cooked them until they were reduced, making the flavor more concentrated.
