Feeling like some summertime flavors? These Amish Friendship Bread Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes will hit the spot!
Okay, we know it’s not summer yet, but once it gets to spring, we already start wanting those summer-y flavors here at The Friendship Bread Kitchen. Enter these delicious strawberry lemon cupcakes. They are light and sweet with the perfect subtle tang from the Lemon Buttercream Frosting.
One of our favorite things about this Amish Friendship Bread Lemonade Strawberry Cupcake recipe is how quick and easy it is to whip it up. This recipe is one of those amazing one-bowl recipes where you don’t have to worry about a big clean up afterwards.
These strawberry lemonade cupcakes call for one small box of sugar-free strawberry Jell-O gelatin for the strawberry flavor (and color). However, you can also add more strawberry if you like a stronger strawberry flavor. Simply dice or crush a half a cup of strawberries and gently fold them into the batter before baking.
And if you’re less of a sweet tooth, you can cut down the sugar in the recipe or add a couple teaspoons of lemon juice in the batter. These cupcakes are super versatile and are definitely a hit with kids and adults alike!

Must try these!! Found starter in my freezer and this will be a little bit of summer during this snowy winter!

When you say 1 cup of starter is that the starter after you have let it sit for 10 days? So that could be one of the four cups that you would put into bags right? This sounds yummy and would love to make it so want to get it all right 🙂

Yes, Kathy, you are correct. It’s one of the four cups of starter you have after ten days. However, sometimes you might have more than four cups. I usually do. Happy baking!
These are delicious!
