Strawberry cupcakes

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!

  1. 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!

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