Strawberries were on sale this weekend.  They looked so big, bright and pretty that I had to get a few boxes.  The sight of the beautiful strawberries made me want to make a strawberry dessert. 

A while back, I found a strawberry cupcake recipe from Little Corner of Mine, using strawberry yogurt.  I decided to try out the recipe, and add some fresh strawberries to the recipe.

The cupcakes were really moist and had a peach color due to the strawberry yogurt.  I usually don't like strawberry flavored stuff like strawberry ice cream, so this was not my favorite recipe.  But I think this recipe would be great for those who do love strawberry flavored desserts.  And I love the pretty color!

Strawberry cupcakes (adapted from Little Corner of Mine)

Ingredients

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar

3/4 cup strawberry flavored yogurt
3 large eggs, whisk
2 Tbsp. whole milk
1 tsp. imitation strawberry extract
One drop of red coloring (the original recipe called for one drop. This turned the batter pink, but the baked result was more of a peach color. if you want a deeper pink batter, I would recommend adding another drop)
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup strawberries, cut into small pieces

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350'F. Place paper cups in the muffin pan.

2. In a big bowl, add in flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Whisk to combine.

3. Then, make a hole in the center and add in remaining ingredients, except strawberries. Whisk and blend until incorporated.  Then mix in strawberries.

4. Scoop the batter into each paper cups until 3/4 full.

5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes
out clean. Cool on wire rack.

    This recipe looks unbelievably good. For some reason, I don’t bake (or cook) much with strawberries, but these cupcakes have inspired me. Thanks for posting!

    I thought I would do something lighter for a change. Strawberries and yogurt are much healthier ingredients and go well with the warming weather!
