NOW ONTO THE RECIPE! Strawberry Blonde Cupcakes
These cupcakes come together real quick. I started out with the traditional method of making a cupcake base. Flavored it with strawberry essence. A few drops of strawberry essence to this eggless Strawberry blonde cupcakes will add a great strawberry flavor.
No Strawberry essence on hand. No worries. Replace strawberry essence with the same amount of vanilla essence. With the addition of strawberry essence, the batter smells delicious. Once the batter is ready, toss a cup full of Malt-O-Meal® Cold Stone Creamery Our Strawberry Blonde™ in the batter and fold it in. Strawberry Blonde Cupcakes
Fill those cupcake liners 2/3 full with batter and bake as directed. The Strawberry blonde cupcakes bake up golden and puffy.
