1/2 cup unsalted butter, nearly at room temperature

2 1/2 – 2 3/4 cups powdered sugar

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

4 drops red food coloring (optional)

strawberry cupcakes CC

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift cake flour into a mixing bowl then add baking powder, baking soda and salt, whisk 20 seconds, set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip butter and granluated sugar until pale and fluffy (occasionally stop and scrape down bowl throughout entire mixing process if not using a paddle attachment that constantly scrapes bowl). Mix in egg then mix in egg whites one at a time. In liquid measuring cup used to measure buttermilk, whisk together the buttermilk, 1/3 cup strawberry puree and the vanilla extract. Working in three separate batches, beginning and ending with flour mixture, add 1/3 of the flour mixture (to the butter mixture) alternating with half of the buttermilk mixture and mixing just until combined after each addition. Fold in the 3/4 cup diced strawberries. Divide batter among 12 paper lined muffin cups, filling each 3/4 full (nearly 1/3 cup in each). Bake in preheated oven 20 – 23 minutes until toothpick inserted into center of cupcake comes out clean. Allow to cool in muffin tin several minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.
  • For the Strawberry Buttercream Frosting:
  • Add 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp strawberry puree to a small saucepan. Heat mixture over medium-low heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally until reduced by about 2/3 to 3 Tbsp, about 10 – 14 minutes (measure and if it isn’t quite 3 Tbsp then return and continue to simmer, if it’s not reduced to correct amount it will make frosting runny). Pour reduced puree into a small bowl, then freeze until cool (stir occasionally for even chilling, it will chill quickly in the freezer since it’s such a small amount).
  • In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip unsalted and salted butter until very pale and fluffy (nearly white. Stop and scrape down bowl occasionally throughout entire mixing process if not using the paddle attachment that constantly scrapes bowl). Mix in 1 cup powdered sugar, then blend in 3 Tbsp reduced strawberry puree, vanilla extract, and optional red food coloring. Add remaining 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and continue to mix until frosting is pale and fluffy, adding in an additional 1/4 cup powdered sugar if needed to reach desired consistency.
  • To assemble cupcakes:
  • Place a small mound of small diced strawberries on top center of cupcakes. Pipe frosting around and over berries then decorate with a whole small strawberry. Store cupcakes in an airtight container.
  • *To get the strawberry puree, puree strawberries in a food processor then measure out amount needed. For both the puree for cupcakes and frosting it was about 10 medium strawberries but that amount will vary just depending on the size of your strawberries.
  • **I just used the buttermilk substitute, so if you don’t have buttermilk on hand simply add a scant 1 tsp lemon juice or white vinegar to a liquid measuring cup, then add in enough milk to reach 1/4 cup. Whisk and let rest 3 minutes.

Strawberry-Cream Pie

12

Strawberry-Cream Pie

Yield : 9″ pie

INGREDIENTS:

 

Vanilla Cookie Crust:

5 Tablespoons Non-Dairy Margarine or Coconut Oil, Melted
1 1/2 Cups Finely Ground Vanilla Wafer Cookie Crumbs

Strawberry Cream Filling:

1 Pound Fresh Strawberries
1 1/2 Tablespoons Lime Juice
1 Teaspoon Lemon Zest
1 1/2 Teaspoons Agar Powder
1 Pint So Delicious Vanilla Coconut, Almond, or Soy Ice Cream, Melted

12a

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the melted margarine or coconut oil with the cookies in a large bowl, stirring thoroughly to completely moisten every last crumb. Transfer the mixture to a 9-inch pie pan and use your hands to press it evenly across the bottom and up the sides. If it’s too sticky to handle with ease, lightly moisten your hands before proceeding. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool while you move on to the filling.

Wash, hull, and roughly slice the strawberries before tossing them into your blender along with all of the remaining ingredients. Puree until mostly but not entirely smooth, leaving a few small chunks of berries intact. If you’d prefer a silkier texture, continue blending until no lumps remain, and pass the pink mixture through a fine mesh sieve, discarding the seeds. Transfer the mixture to a medium saucepan and set over moderate heat. Whisk frequently as it warms up, cooking until it comes to a full boil. Continue stirring vigorously for a full two minutes and then pour the hot filling into your prepared crust.

Tap the pan lightly on the counter to release any air bubbles, and let cool to room temperature. Only then is it safe to transfer to the fridge to continue cooling. Don’t rush this process, since an agar gel that’s cooled too quickly will weep and become watery later on.

Once fully chilled and solidified, slice and serve with additional fresh berries if desired- Or, additional scoops of ice cream!

Fresh Strawberry Cake

Fresh Strawberry Cake

Yield : 9″x  13″

INGREDIENTS:

For the Cake
    • 3 cups cake flour
    • 2 tsp baking powder
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
    • 3 eggs
    • ½ cup sour cream
    • 2 Tbsp vanilla extract
    • ¾ cup milk
For the Strawberry Frosting (See note below!)
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3 pints (~2 pounds) strawberries, stems and hulls removed

DIRECTIONS:

For the Cake
    1. Grease and flour 2 9” round cake pans; set aside. Preheat oven to 325°F.
    2. In a medium bowl, combine the cake flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir until well combined; set aside.
    3. Using a countertop mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
    4. Add about ½ of the flour mixture to the bowl; mix on low speed until well combined.
    5. Add the sour cream, vanilla, and approximately half of the milk to the bowl. Mix on low until well combined.
    6. Add the remaining flour mixture; mix on low until well combined.
    7. Add the remaining milk; mix on low until well combined. (Tip: Don’t forget to scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure all ingredients are fully mixed.)
    8. Divide the batter evenly between the 2 cake pans. Bake at 325°F for 34-36 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
For the Strawberry Frosting
    1. In a medium bowl, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form; set aside. (Make sure to beat until whipped cream is very stiff–stiffer than “normal”–but take care not to overbeat.)
    2. In the bowl of a countertop mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the softened cream cheese on high speed until light and fluffy. (Tip: Stop and scrape the sides of the bowl once or twice during this step.)
    3. Add the sugar and vanilla, and beat on medium speed until fully combined.
    4. Meanwhile, chop about 3/4 of the strawberries into 1/3″-1/2″ cubes.
    5. Add the chopped strawberries to the bowl and mix until fully combined. (Note: The frosting will turn pink; mix until frosting is uniform in color.)
    6. Remove the bowl from the mixer and fold in the whipped cream. Stir until well combined.
To Assemble the Cake
  1. Place one layer of cake on a large plate. Frost the top of the layer with Strawberry Frosting. Place the second layer of cake on top and frost the top of the cake.
  2. Using an offset spatula, frost the sides of the cake. (Note: It is helpful to refrigerate the frosting for about 20-30 minutes before frosting the sides of the cake.)
  3. Slice the remaining strawberries and garnish the top of the cake with the slices.

Notes:

Baker’s Note #1: Update based on readers’ comments In order for the whipped cream frosting to be stiff enough for the cake, the cream should be whipped longer than normal. You don’t want to create butter, but the cream should be whipped past the stiff peaks stage. Alternatively, you can either increase the amount of cream cheese by 4 oz. or reduce the amount of heavy cream by 1 cup. This will produce a frosting that is a bit more stable…making it easier to frost the cake. I hope this helps!

Baker’s Note #2: The cake pictured in this post actually has 3 layers. I normally make this cake in 2 layers, and the recipe below is for the 2-layer version. If you’d like to make the 3-layer version, just make 1.5x the recipe.
