These lovely and delicious Gluten-Free Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes are perfect for summer! They are tender and flavorful and only use a few simple ingredients.
I published a similar recipe a few weeks back for Gluten-Free Raspberry Lime Mojito Cupcakes. My daughters loved watching me make them and requested that I make a kid friendly version that didn’t include rum. With all the recipe testing to get ready for the cupcake battle, I didn’t really have time.
My youngest had a birthday coming up and what better way to celebrate than to make the cupcake she had been requesting – Gluten-Free Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes! This was my chance to please my daughters cravings for a kid version of the mojito cupcakes, and make something special for my daughters birthday.
This Gluten-Free Strawberry Lemonade Cupcake was a huge hit at my daughters family birthday party. Even the gluten eaters said it was the best cupcake they had tasted. The lemon cupcake is bursting with citrus and vanilla and the strawberry buttercream frosting is sweet and lends subtle hints of fresh strawberries, making this Gluten-Free Strawberry Lemonade Cupcake a PERFECT cupcake.
I used my KitchenAid Mixer to whip up these tasty cupcakes. Don’t have one? No worries. I’ve teamed up with 26 other bloggers for a recipe sharing collaboration and KitchenAid Mixer giveaway to help my friend Sharon from What the Fork Food Blog celebrate her birthday.
Each blogger is sharing a fabulous recipe that would make anyone swoon (see their recipes below).
