Cup cakes or cakes are always my kids favourite at home.I always like the fresh fruits added to my baked items rather than the store brought flavoured syrups as a matter of eating healthy food :-)

I had some fresh strawberries with me, so just pruned into  juice and strained ,added this to my cup cakes.At the end just garnished it with pink icing.This is a recipe, I shared with my friends for a small snacky party of kids.

all purpose flour 2 1/2 cups
eggs 2
strawberries 10-12 (blended n strained)
sugar 1 1/2 cup (as per your taste)
butter 1 stick / 1/2 cup melted /vegetable oil 1/2 cup
vanilla essence 1 tsp
baking powder 1 1/2 tsp
red food colour 1/2 tsp (optional)
almond shredded 1/3 cup

  • Wash the strawberries and hulled.Blend them into fine syrup and strain for the seeds.keep aside.
  • Whisk the eggs at room temperature till frothy.
  • Add the sugar and blend again,then the melted butter.
  • Add the all purpose flour ,baking powder,vanilla essence,strawberry syrup.
  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees and line a muffin tray with baking cups .
  • Spray oil or apply oil into the cups,pour the mix upto 2/3 rd full in each cup.
  • Garnish with shredded almonds.
  • Place it in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until tooth pick comes clean.
  • Switch off the oven and leave the tray in the oven for 15minutes.

  • Then, take out and cool it completely before icing.

  • Apply icing in desired shapes.
Servings 25 cup cakes
