Strawberry cupcakes


Makes: 8-10 medium size cupcakes or 24 small cupcakes


¾ stick of butter

¾ cup of granulated sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ cup of yogurt

2 drops of strawberry food flavor
1 to 2 drops of red food coloring

1 ¼ cup of all-purpose flour

2 teaspoon baking powder

Pinch of salt (very little amount of salt about 1/8 teaspoon!
Optional (as in picture): chopped  fresh strawberries mixed with ½ tablespoon of flour


White marzipan (as in picture)

Or any other frosting/icing of choice


Preheat the oven to 180-200 degree Celsius.
Beat the butter with sugar

Add the eggs and vanilla extract

Mix the batter well

Add the yogurt and mix

Add two drops of strawberry flavor, 1 to 2 drops of red food coloring and mix.

 In a separate bowl sift the flour and the baking powder with a pinch of salt
Add the sifted dry ingredients to the wet and mix (few folds just to get all ingredients together) Take care not to over mix. Add the chopped strawberries with the last fold

Fill ¾ of the paper (because it is going to rise a little in the oven)
Bake them in the preheated oven for about 20 min or until they are ready, this step depends on the thickness of your cupcakes and your oven so stick a wooden toothpick to check if they are ready.
 Let them cool on a wire rack then decorate them with marzipan or any other frosting/icing of choice

Serve them cold
