I adapted a trusted cupcake recipe, I decided to replace the milk quantity with the blended strawberry, liquid for liquid what could go wrong?I realised something was wrong when I had to bake them for 50 mins just to get them 'set'. What I ended up with were sunken soggy cupcakes, beautiful cases though :P
I decided to ice them and brave it out. Even the icing went wrong. My imagined swirls of strawberry hued icing with crushed meringue on top, actually turned out as a blob of nasty pink icing with chunks of meringue that wouldn't stick.
They tasted like a kind of suet pudding when warm, when completely cooled they tasted like rubber.
I will try again, I love strawberries, I love cupcakes, I will make this work...
...just not anytime soon.
