These Strawberry Vanilla Cupcakes are all that I can think about. Getting out to the pick-your-own farm and collecting a few flats of these ruby little gems for baking and munching on. It just makes me happy.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Put cupcake liners into regular sized muffin tins.
Puree the macerated strawberries in a food processor set to the side.
You will need to sift the all purpose flour into the bowl of a stand mixer using a paddle attachment.
Add the sugar and baking powder into the flour and mix on low just until combined.
Add the butter and strawberry puree to the flour and mix on low until combined.
In a second bowl whisk together the eggs, egg whites and vanilla extract.
Add egg mixture to the flour mixture mix on low speed.
Mix on medium speed until well combined, about 1 minute.
Scoop batter into cupcake liners only 3/4 of the way full.
