How to Make Strawberry Cupcakes with fresh strawberries

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Remove stems from strawberries and place in a food processor. Pulse until the strawberries are pureed.
  • Measure out 1/3 cup of the strawberry puree  and pour in a bowl.
  • In another bowl or in the bowl of your stand mixer add the self rising flour, cake flour and sugar.
  • Cut your butter into tablespoon size pieces add in one piece of butter mixing on low speed until the butter is combined and it is the texture of sand.
  • Pour half of the milk into the flour mixture and mix just until incorporated. Using a rubber spatula push down the bater  and add the remaining milk, strawberry poured and vanilla and mix on low until combined.
  • Add in each egg one at a time while mixing on low until all eggs are mixed in.
  • Scoop the batter into cupcake liners in a cupcake pan filling them 3/4 of the way full.
  • Bake for 10 minutes and then rotate the cupcake pan.
  • Bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Remove the cupcakes from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack to cool.

How to Make Chocolate buttercream

  • Place your butter in the bowl of your mixer. Mix on medium speed until the butter is nice and creamy.
  • Turn the mixer down to the lowest setting and slowly incorporate the powdered sugar and cocoa powder into the butter.
  • Once you have added all the powdered sugar in to your mixture, add in the vanilla extract, heavy cream and salt.
  • Turn the mixer up to medium-high speed and continue mixing for 10 minutes until light and fluffy.

Make Chocolate Covered Strawberries

  • While the cupcakes are cooling, make your chocolate covered Strawberries. Wash and dry the strawberries.
  • Melt your chocolate and shortening over your double boiler until almost all the chocolate has melted. Remove the bowl from the heat and stir until the chocolate is smooth.
  • Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat.
  • Dip each strawberry into the chocolate and place onto the sheet pan. Place the strawberries into the fridge to set.

How to Assemble Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cupcakes

  • If you are using a disposable pastry bag start off by cutting the tip off you bag wide enough to fit your piping tip in the hole.
  • Place your piping tip into your pastry bag.
  • Fill the pastry bag with your chocolate buttercream, making sure you do not overfill the bag.
  • Swirl the buttercream onto each chocolate cupcake by starting in the middle then swirling the tip around the whole top cupcake.
  • Top each cupcake with a chocolate covered strawberry.
