Strawberry Buttercream Frosting Recipe

Servings 16-18 cupcakes 

Ingredients:

  • 1 heaping cup strawberries (preferably fresh)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) butter, room temperature
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon cream or milk
  • A few drops of red food color (optional)

 

Instructions:

  • Place lemon juice and strawberries in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Add the puree in a small saucepan. Next, place over medium heat and bring it to a simmer, stirring quite often. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until you have around ⅓ cup of the puree mixture. Then, remove from heat.
  • In case you don’t like seeds in your buttercream, strain the puree through a fine mesh strainer at this point. (Usually, I don’t strain mine – I like the seed zest, it gives more natural taste.) Allow cooling to room temperature.
  • In a mixing bowl, add strawberry puree and butter. Whip together with a mixer until smooth.
  • Next, add in the powdered sugar and a few drops of red food color (if you like more intense strawberry-color of the frosting) , and whip on medium-high until creamy and smooth.
  • Put the cream (or milk) and vanilla extract and whip again to combine. Now, test your buttercream. If it’s still too thick, continue adding cream or milk, one tablespoon at a time until it reaches desired consistency.
  • As soon as your cake/cupcakes/ or other baked dessert is completely cooled – you can frost with the strawberry buttercream frosting. Simply spread or pipe it on.

Enjoy!
