These delicious Strawberry Smoothie cupcakes are so quick and easy to make. I love them as I have all the ingredients in my pantry so when I decide to make them with my girls the only thing we need to buy is the smoothie mix.
Makes 16 cupcakes
½ cup butter
1 1/3 cups castor sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 ¼ cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 cup strawberry smoothie
350g icing sugar
½ tsp vanilla
3 tbsp milk
1 punnet strawberries to decorate
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Cream butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Slowly add the eggs, then beat in the smoothie and vanilla.
In a separate bowl sift the dry ingredients together.
Combine dry ingredients with the creamed mixture, and fold together gently.
Spoon into paper cupcake cases until ¾ full.
Bake for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely before icing.
Cream butter and vanilla.
Beat in the icing sugar bit by bit, adding milk whenever the mixture becomes too thick.
To assemble the cupcake:
Spread the icing on top of the cupcake and decorate with the fresh strawberries.
