Vanilla strawberry cupcake – A very simple, moist and yummy cupcake perfect for parties.
I made this vanilla strawberry cupcake for my baby shreeya’s 1st monthsary birthday. I could not plan much as my elder one was keeping me busy all the time. When I was thinking for some easy cake ideas, I landed up with this recipe. It was very easy to make.
I actually planned to make a basic vanilla cupcake and then thought of adding some strawberry pieces into it. I then added strawberry pieces and believe me, it came out very well. Initially I thought of posting vanilla cupcake and vanilla strawberry cupcake as a single recipe /post but then thought will post it as two recipes. Hope you like both vanilla cupcake and vanilla strawberry cupcake.
