Strawberry and rosemary are a match made in Heaven!
I went grocery shopping yesterday and found baskets of fresh strawberries stacked in the fridge! They smelled incredible! I couldn’t help myself and ended up going home with them! Of course as I strolled from there I suddenly found myself smelling a pot of rosemary and placing it in my cart without much thinking! Funny how herbs always find me!! I love herbs, and it seems that every time I am at the supermarket, I end up buying a pot of fresh herbs. I like the combination of Rosemary with strawberries and thought the two will make a refreshing cupcake. This cupcake is light, fresh and aromatic; therefore I did not want to top it with an overpowering frosting. Instead, I decided to stay on the fresh light side and go for a simple rosemary whipped cream topping. The outcome was delightful. Believe me, it is the perfect afternoon snack!
I like to cook with my children, and they love to help when I am cooking. This recipe is very child friendly, and is an excellent activity to do with your kids. They will love washing the strawberries, and picking the rosemary leaves. All you guys will need is a bowl, a wire whisk and the ingredients! I have made the cupcakes out of a one-bowl batter, to make it simple, and to have my daughter help. I have added a little pink food colouring to the batter, because she wanted to try adding colour to the batter, but you can omit the colour.
