The refreshing flavors of strawberry and lemon combined into one delicious cupcake. It’s strawberry lemonade in a cupcake!
It’s pretty apparent that I love cupcakes. And I’m so excited to share this recipe with you today! It’s so yummy and perfect for a spring and summer treat.
Don’t you just love the bright colors? The strawberry buttercream frosting is so good you’ll be lucky if it makes it on the cupcakes! We used some of the leftovers on graham crackers and it was mighty delicious. It is made with strawberry jam, so you don’t have to worry about having fresh strawberries on hand!
Strawberry Lemon Cupcakes are a perfect dessert any time of year. Such a delicious flavor combo! Enjoy!
