Strawberry Sundae Cupcakes

Strawberry Sundae Cupcakes

This is the cake I made when I married the man of my dreams. I knew this was his favourite cake so I perfected it. Its perfect for cupcakes too, here’s my favourite take on the strawberry sundae cupcakes to use some of our amazing local of strawberries.


225 g salted butter

4 large room temperature free range eggs

1 cup white sugar

200g self raising flour

60ml milk

10ml vanilla extract

1 teaspoon grated lime or lemon


Beat the sugar and butter with the whisk attachment until light and pale fluffy.  The sugar must be dissolved right through and the mixture should look like a little bit of heaven…all light and fluffy!

 Now put the mixer on to really low and add the self-raising flour, eggs and vanilla and zest.  Mix well to form a smooth batter.

Now pour into a greased cupcake tin or cupcake papers.

Bake for about 15-18 minutes at 170c, until lovely and brown and until a skewer comes out clean from the middle.

Once cooked, remove from the oven and cool!

Once cooled I simply piped these with whipped cream, some sliced strawberries and white chocolate curls or bark.


Happy Baking!
