  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease 12 cupcake pan cups or line with paper liners.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the strawberry extract. Combine the self-rising flour and salt; stir into the batter just until blended. Fold in strawberries last. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups, dividing evenly.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pan set over a wire rack. When cool, arrange the cupcakes on a serving platter. Frost with desired frosting.

To make less dense, I think you should cut down on the butter and eggs (say to 6 tbs of butter and only 1 or 2 eggs) and then make up for the lost moisture with 1/2 c whole milk. When beating together butter and sugar, make you are do it for a good 3-4 minutes. It will get noticeable lighter. Also cut the flour a little bit. Finally, only add a pinch of salt. Enjoy!


Delicious! I tweaked the recipe a bit and had fantastic results. As per another reviewers suggestion, I used only 6 tbs butter and added 1/2 c whole milk (still used 3 eggs!). I baked the cupcakes for the full 25 minutes and they were perfect! Not at all muffiny. Only a couple made it until the next day, and they were still great. We used buttercream frosting and that was a bit heavy for the cupcake, so maybe next time I'll try something new. Can't wait to make these again!


I should have read the reviews before making this recipe. I am supposed to be making strawberry cupcakes for a 9 year old's birthday party. These turned out to be delicious muffins, but definately NOT cupcakes. It's my own fault for trying a new recipe the day of the party, but now I must go buy some cupcakes at the store because there isn't time to make any now. If you want strawberry muffins though, these are really good.
