Strawberry (Fragaria spp., Rosaceae family) is a small fruit, sweet and (usually) red, characterized by the seed on the surface of the fruit. This fruit can be consumed fresh, natural, in fruit salad and added to sweets. The fruit is medically recommended as diuretic, laxative, astringent, tonic, antirheumatic and antiseptic. 100g of strawberry is equivalent to 33 Kcal.

For a sunny Sunday, nothing better than reading a book while enjoying a delicious and fresh cupcake with seasonal fruit!

The recipe is a delicious blend created by me that accommodates the original recipes of Sylvie Aït-Ali (1) and a recipe from a friend.
