Yields 12 cupcakes

Ingredients:
2 tbsp strawberry jam or preserves (preferably seedless for frosting)
1/4 cup chopped fresh strawberries

3/4 cup of sugar

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a small bowl, mix strawberry preserves and chopped strawberries. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt.

In a third bowl, beat sugar and butter together until fluffy (about 3 minutes using a hand mixer). Add egg whites, vanilla, and food coloring and beat until well incorporated. Add flour mixture and milk, beating on low speed until mixed. Fold in strawberry mixture.

Fill cupcake liners in cupcake pan 3/4 full. Bake for 25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center of cupcake comes out clean. Let the cupcakes cool in the pan for five minutes then remove the cupcakes onto a cooling rack and let cool for 45 minutes.

    I really loved this recipe! The steps were simple and easy to follow and the results were amazing! The only change I made was replacing the food dye with drops of strawberry juice :> it gave it a nice pink colour and a more noticeable strawberry scent to the cupcakes. I have to make more soon since the first batch I made disappeared in less than a day :B

    My daughter wants a strawberry cake. I’ve been looking for a recipe without gelatin and this looks like a good one. How much cake would you guess this recipe makes? Enough for one circular cake pan? Ideally, I’d like enough for two cake pans. I can double the recipe if necessary.
    Thanks.

    As much as I wanted to like this recipe, I was quite disappointed with this recipe. The texture was somewhat dry and dense with very little strawberry flavor. The top was also weirdly crunchy, which I assume is because of the egg whites. The frosting was also lacking in flavor. I will either replace the jam with my own strawberry compote, and using whole eggs, or I won’t be using this recipe again. :/
