What ingredients for these strawberry lemon cupcakes?
These are simple ingredients, there is nothing complicated about this recipe. For the soft lemon base, these are classic ingredients for a cake: flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, butter, cream and lemon.
I advise you for this recipe to choose organic lemons well since we will use their zest and juice.
For the icing, this is a strawberry mascarpone whipped cream. So we need liquid cream, mascarpone, sugar and strawberries. Take them very ripe, they will be well scented! It's perfect for this recipe.
How to make strawberry cupcakes?
To make this recipe, we start by making compote strawberries to mash them. To do this, we heat them slightly and then put them in a blender before leaving to cool.
During this time, we prepare the lemon cake base. On one side we mix the dry ingredients, on the other we beat the eggs and the sugar then the butter. Little by little we incorporate the dry ingredients into the previous mixture. We finish with the cream, lemon juice and zest.
Finally, we make the icing by whipping the cream, mascarpone and whipped sugar. We add the strawberry puree. Here it is ready!
For decoration, we fill a pastry bag with a fluted tip, for me it is the socket 1M. We decorate the cupcakes as we wish, without forgetting the whole strawberry on top!
