  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup strawberries , sliced (135 grams)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup sparkling wine (237 ml, 8 fl oz)

  • 4 cups powdered sugar , sifted (455 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

To make the cupcakes:

  • Pour the batter into the prepared muffin pan, filling each cup ¾ full. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake come out clean, about 20-25 minutes. Let cool completely.

To make the frosting:

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium high speed until light and smooth, about 2-3 minutes. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla, salt and strawberry purée and mix on medium speed until smooth. Add additional pureé if needed to get the desired consistency.
  • Frost cupcakes with the frosting. Store in the fridge. Cupcakes will keep for several days.

  • If desired, strain strawberry purée before using.
