Strawberries and cream cupcakes

These cupcakes are very light and fluffy. They are topped off with sweet cream and strawberries – so yummy. Try it out!

Ingredients for 12 cupcakes:

  • 225 g butter
  • 160 g caster sugar
  • 225 g plain flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder

All ingredients should be at room temperature.

In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one by one, mixing after each addition. Add the sifted flour, baking powder and vanilla extract and mix with a spatula to combine the ingredients.

Line a muffin tin with cupcake cases. Place the batter into the cases up to 3/4 of their height. Bake for about 25 minutes at 170ºC or until a stick inserted into the cupcakes comes out dry. Remove and cool on a wire rack.

Cream topping:

  • 400 ml whipping cream 36%, chilled
  • 1 Tbsp mascarpone cheese
  • 1 Tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 250 g small strawberries
  • 4 Tbsp strawberry jelly
  • 1 Tbsp hot water

In a mixing bowl, add the whipping cream and mascarpone cheese. Beat with sugar and vanilla extract until light and fluffy. Place the cream in a piping bag with a decorating tip and pipe onto the cupcakes. Place the cut strawberries on top. Add hot water to the jelly and mix until the jelly dissolves (you can add more water). Spread the jelly on the strawberries and cool.
