Martha Stewart Living offers a recipe for strawberry cupcakes made from scratch. First, puree 2/3 cup fresh or frozen strawberries, and set them aside.

Add a mixture of 1/4 cup room-temperature whole milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla and the pureed strawberries. When the batter is fluffy, add 1 cup sugar and 1 large egg.
