Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes Recipe

The biggest thing to remember is that you can use a food processor to get the texture that you need for the strawberries. They need to be pureed but not lost if that makes sense! Also, don’t forget that using a cupcake liner is key! You don’t want to miss out on any flavor by having these stick to the pan!

This simple cupcake recipe is one that my boys love and I tend to make it a lot during the warmer parts of the year. It’s also really great for birthday parties and baby showers, too.

How do you know when cupcakes are done baking?

All you have to do is have a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cupcake. If it comes out clean, they’re done baking. If not, just insert it back into the oven and let them bake for a couple more minutes.

This is the best cupcake recipe you're ever going to make!


  • 1 cup of sifted flour
  • 1 cup of sifted cake flour
  • 2 Tablespoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup of room temp butter
  • 1 1/2 of cups sugar
  • 3 large beaten eggs
  • 1/2 cup of fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon of lemon zest
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 1/4 cup of sour cream


  • 1 package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup of butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup of pureed strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla


  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 eggs yolks, beaten
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of mashed strawberries


For the strawberry filling:

Put the egg yolks into a bowl and whisk. Pour in the condensed milk, egg, yolks, mashed strawberries, and sugar into a saucepan. Cook on medium-low heat and stir the whole time. This should take about 15 minutes and be thick. Put in the fridge to cool.

For the cupcakes:

Combine the butter, eggs, sugar, lemon zest and juice, sour cream, milk, and mix.

Grab a different bowl and sift the two flours. Add the baking powder and salt and mix.

Put the flour mixture into the other mix a bit at a time and mix until well blended. Mix on high for 1 minute.

Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full. Put in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Remove and let cool on a wire rack.

For the frosting:

Blend the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add in the pureed strawberries and vanilla. Add in the powdered sugar in small batches and blend. Frosting should be thick to pipe on the cupcakes.

Put the bowl in the fridge and cover it with foil until you're going to use it.

Once the cupcakes are done cooling, take out the center of each cupcake with a corer. Put in a teaspoon of the strawberry filling and put a whole strawberry on top.

Then, take the frosting out of the fridge and put it in a pastry bag with a star tip. Pipe on the frosting and top the whole cupcake with a strawberry.

Cover and put in the fridge for 2 hours.
