  • 250
    strawberries - hulled and dusted with 30ml castor sugar
  • 2
  • 250
    white sugar
  • 80
    vegetable oil
  • 50
    vanilla extract
  • 375
    cake flour
  • 10
    baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 60
  • For the icing:
  • 250
    double thick cream
  • 2.5
    vanilla extract
  • 15
    white sugar
  • 6
    strawberries hulled and sprinkled
  • with 15ml castor sugar. Stand for 30 minutes.


Pre-heat the oven to 165ºC.

Line a cupcake pan with cupcake holders.

Place the strawberries into a blender and blend until the desired consistency (according to your taste). Set aside.

Beat the eggs, white sugar, oil, vanilla and strawberry puree together in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl sift the cake flour, baking powder and salt together.

Fold the flour mixture alternating with the milk a little bit at a time into the egg mixture. Mix until just combined, making sure not to over mix.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin holders and fill each one about ²/³ full.

Bake for approximately 25 minutes, until the cupcakes have risen and browned. Test by inserting a toothpick into the centre of the cupcake and if it comes out clean the cupcakes are done.

Remove from the oven and cool down for 5 minutes in the pan before removing to cooling racks. Let the cupcakes cool down completely before decorating.

Place the cream, vanilla extract and sugar in a large mixing bowl and mix till combined. Place the mixture and your electric beater’s whisks in the refrigerator and leave for 30 minutes.

Remove from the fridge and beat until soft peaks form. Blend the strawberries into a puree and add to the cream, a little at a time, whilst beating continuously until stiff.

Decorate the cupcakes and add a halved strawberry on top.
