Directions

While the oven is preheating to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, place paper liners in a muffin tin and set it to the side. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in one bowl, and beat the butter in a separate bowl on a medium-high setting until it’s fluffy -- around 2-3 minutes. Gradually add the sugar and set the speed to low to add the egg, egg whites, and vanilla extract.

Add half the contents of the flour bowl to the mixture while the mixer is still set on a low speed. When everything has combined nicely, add the milk until it’s mixed together well, and then add the remaining flour mix. Gently fold in the chopped strawberries and fill the muffin tin with the batter, baking for 18-20 minutes.

For the frosting, whip the butter and ricotta until it creates a smooth and creamy consistency. Gradually add in the powdered sugar and salt until the frosting has become thick, and then add in the lemon zest.

After the cupcakes have cooled and the frosting has chilled in the refrigerator, coat the tops of the cakes with the frosting.
