Strawberry Cupcakes Ingredients:

  • 200 grams of butter
  • 60 ml. lemon juice (juice from 1 large lemon)
  • finely grated peel of 1 lemon (yellow part only)
  • 250 grams of sugar
  • 100 ml. of water
  • 2 eggs husband
  • 100 grams of yogurt
  • 250 grams of flour
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • strawberry jelly: 150 grams of strawberries, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 teaspoon cornstarch, 20 grams butter
  • cream: 2/3 portion strawberry cream with Italian meringue and butter
  • optional: 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • decoration: fresh strawberries, fresh mint leaves
  • in addition: paper baskets for muffins

Preparing Strawberry Cupcakes:

For the preparation with growing agent, things are very simple: turn on the oven and set at 180 degrees Celsius soft butter beaten with sugar flour mix with baking powder and grated lemon peel over butter, add eggs whole, one at a time, mixing vigorously with the mixer after each yogurt beat with a fork with lemon juice, 1 pinch of salt, vanilla extract and 100 ml. of water. Add the flour over the butter cream and eggs and mix with the mixer on low speed. Add the liquids (yogurt beaten with water and lemon juice) and mix well. Prepare the special tray for muffins with paper baskets, pour the composition (which will be quite liquid) to the level of 2/3 of the space of each place and bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven at 180 degrees. Attention, I got 18 pieces because I used Italian meringue, which increased the volume of the dough by a lot, in this version it is possible to result in exactly 12 muffins.

If you want to imitate me, here's how I did it:
1. I turned on the oven and set it at 180 degrees Celsius. I separated the eggs, put the egg whites in the bowl of the mixer and kept the yolks aside. In a saucepan, I put 100 ml on the fire. of water with 200 grams of sugar. I beat the egg whites with 1 pinch of salt, I added 50 grams of sugar and I beat further. The moment when the sugar dissolves in the meringue must coincide with the moment when the pan syrup reaches a temperature of 117 degrees Celsius, ie the soft ball stage. To synchronize, you need either the help of a second person or a stand mixer.
2. Once it has reached the temperature indicated in the previous step, the syrup is poured in a thin but constant thread over the egg whites, while still beating at medium speed. Once all the syrup is incorporated, increase the speed and continue beating the meringue until it cools down to room temperature.

3. Add the yolks and mix briefly, beat the yogurt with water, lemon juice and vanilla extract separately and mix the flour with the grated lemon peel. Add flour in a few batches, alternating with small amounts of yogurt composition. Incorporate carefully, using a wide spatula, so that the air accumulated in the egg whites is not lost. At the end, add the melted butter, but not hot, so that it is barely warm.

4. The composition is poured into forms lined with special paper baskets, leaving about 1-1.5 cm. place at the top.


5. Bake in the preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes, or until the toothpick test passes. Be careful not to open the oven door for the first 18 minutes, the dough does not contain any growth agent and can be quite sensitive. They do not need to be too brown, just to be well baked inside (ie a clean toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin to come out clean, without traces of raw dough). Cool on one side.


6. My muffins may not have grown as tall as those with baking powder (whose taste is very unpleasant to me and that's why I avoid it), but the inside is quite airy, the texture is moist and dense and the taste is very pleasant.


7. For the strawberry jelly, pass in a blender 150 grams of strawberries with 2 tablespoons of sugar. They are put on the fire, in a saucepan. Separately, dissolve the starch 2-3 tablespoons of cold water and add over the strawberry puree. Bring to a boil, remove from the heat and add the butter, stirring until incorporated (be careful, the jelly should not be thick, rather like a creamy syrup). Dig with a teaspoon in each muffin a cavity that is filled with strawberry jelly.


8. For the cream, follow the preparation instructions from the recipe strawberry cream with Italian meringue and butter (click on the link for the recipe), of which you will need 2/3 (ie 260 grams of strawberries, 230 grams of sugar, 99 grams of raw egg white, 250 grams of butter with a minimum of 80% fat, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 pinch of salt and a few drops of vanilla extract). After the cream is ready, put it in a pos with a star opening and decorate the cupcakes with a generous amount of cream.


Finally, decorate the cupcakes with fresh strawberries and fresh mint leaves and are ready to serve. I prefer them at room temperature rather than in the fridge, so it is good to decorate them as close as possible to the time of serving or, if they are filled with cream beforehand, to take them out at room temperature an hour before serving and the strawberries and mint leaves to add at the last minute.

Good job and good appetite!
