Strawberry Crunch Cupcakes Recipe

We’ve been a fan of cupcakes for a very long time. I love the texture of cupcakes, and my boys love when I pile the frosting on super high.

This is the one to make when you’re craving a homemade cupcake recipe. It’s easy, it’s fast, and it’s so good and full of flavor!

What else besides frosting can I top these cupcakes with?

Cupcakes are a dessert that can be topped with various delicious toppings. Sure, frosting is a classic and tasty option, but why not mix things up?

Add a dollop of lemon curd or raspberry jam on top of your cupcake for a fruity twist. If you’re feeling decadent, drizzle chocolate ganache or caramel sauce for an extra indulgence.

For a crunchy texture, sprinkle chopped nuts or cookie crumbs on your cupcakes.

Don’t be afraid to get creative and experiment with different toppings to add extra flavor and pizzazz to your cupcakes.

When are fresh strawberries in season?

Few fruits can compare to the sweet, juicy taste of fresh strawberries. And while they are available in grocery stores year-round, there is nothing quite like enjoying them at the peak of their season.

Fresh strawberries are typically in season during the summer months, with the exact timing depending on your location.

For those in the northern hemisphere, the season typically runs from late April through June, while those in the southern hemisphere can enjoy them during November and December.

Whether you enjoy them on their own, as a topping on your favorite dessert, or blended into a refreshing smoothie, there’s no denying that the best strawberries are those in season.
