Preheat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour and baking powder. Alternately add flour mixture and milk, mixing well after each addition. Fold in strawberries. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 17-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on rack; remove and cool completely before decorating.

They tasted like biscuits! Why is there so much baking powder? I knew something was wrong when the batter rose as soon as it was mixed! Batter felt like sticky bread dough, never rose in the oven and, like I said, tastes like a biscuit. Not what I call a cupcake.

Made the strawberry cupcakes, using self-rising flour. Added in a box of vanilla pudding. Also used fresh frozen strawberries in their natural juice. Cupcakes turned out very moist and a pretty pale pink color. Made a banana cream pudding to fill them using heavy whipping cream instead of milk. And topped them with the strawberry cream cheese icing that I found the recipe for here. They were a big hit with my grandson's class!

This was okay but I have an easier recipe. Just use a strawberry cake mix and add in fresh strawberries (pureed) and they taste fantastic! I also have a buttercream recipe that uses fresh pureed strawberries. I also use cream cheese filling. I've made them three times and have perfected them.
