These strawberry banana cupcakes came to life for two reasons:

1. Strawberry banana is my favorite yogurt flavor and I wanted a cupcake that went with Greek yogurt frosting.

2. The farmers’ market was flooded with amazing looking fresh strawberries!

The strawberry banana cupcakes were my kind of cupcake – moist, dense, and not overly sweet. My only disappointment with them was that they tasted too much like banana cake. While you could taste the strawberry, the flavor wasn’t as prominent as I would have liked. Next time, I might cut the banana in half and add even more berries.

Recipe Notes

The Frosting

I topped the cupcakes with Greek yogurt frosting.


The Cupcake Liners

When I first began cupcake blogging, I used only plain white cupcake liners, but I quickly developed a sizable liner collection. I get super excited whenever I see a style I haven’t seen before. My friend Christina bought me the liners shown above as a surprise gift. Despite my lot of liners, I had never seen this pattern! They are so cute and appropriately came in strawberry and banana colors! Thanks, Christina! Sorry you didn’t get to eat any of the cupcakes baked in them. Luckily, I have some liners left, so you can try one next time.

    adorable liners!

    the recipe looks good, too. I have yet to make a banana cupcake, but I’ve been craving things banana lately. I may have to give this one a whirl!

  2. oh wow. can’t waste beautiful strawberries like that on something ordinary, right? i am really hoping these can be veganized because they look amazing!!!

    i love cupcake liners too. isn’t it so fun looking for new patterns?

  3. Yum! These look very good! I am especially curious to try the Greek yogurt frosting…

  4. Love the idea of strwberry and the banana, loke the cup cake liner.

  5. These sound fabulous! Might hit my strawberry craving sweet spot too. Wonder if there is a strawberry frostine (w/o yogurt)…I’ll go for full on sugar buzz at this point!

  6. Ivysays:

    I love the top photo! You are so creative.

  7. Pinkysays:

    Yumm. I love strawberry banana too. I made some banana muffins awhile ago and replaced part of the banana with strawberry. But I also thought the banana was still dominant. Maybe some sort of strawberry filling…
    And I love the greek yogurt frosting idea. I’ve been on a huge greek yogurt kick lately (just finished my morning bowl of fruit, yogurt, and cereal) and I had been thinking lately that it would be good for frosting. Glad to see it works!

  8. Elysesays:

    These cupcakes sound summery and delicious–plus, with the Greek yogurt frosting, they aren’t too bathing suit-unfriendly :) I can’t wait to try this recipe out–and I’ll take your advice and cut the banana down.

  9. The yogurt frosting is absolutely amazingly yummy! Great texture and taste. I agree with you Queen O Cupcakes, more berries, less nannas. But they were still extremely yummy. I could have eaten 5 … but that would have been rude.

  10. Love your cute smiley face photo. I too love banana strawberry yogurt and glad you decided to experiment with this great flavor combo!

  11. Katiesays:

    these look so cute and delicious.

  12. This is so cute and sounds so delicious! Do you know how I could make this vegan?

  13. JSDsays:

    Thanks for the recipe. Keep on the good work. For all the cupcake lovers, take a look at this lovely animated short film:

  14. Anonymoussays:

    hey so ireally wanna try these but where can i get masarated strawberries from? or do you make them yourself? if so, how?

  15. Stefsays:

    Anon – Just smash up a bunch of strawberries. You can use a food processor.

  16. Anonymoussays:

    these look amazing, I was thinking of making the batter and pouring into ice cream cones with your whipped strawberry icing!! Is there any way I could substitute whole wheat flour instead of white or half and half??

  17. Stefsays:

    Wheeler’s – To make it vegan, I would use oil instead of butter and soy milk instead of yogurt.

    Anon – I would suggest half whole wheat and half white flour.

  18. Hey, just made these Strawberry Banana Cupcakes and they are amazing! Made the Greek yogurt icing too…mmm mmm good!

  19. shamekasays:

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! I just made these cupcakes and i must say they are to die for. I didn’t make the yogurt icing but i decide to make strawberry banana icing instead but boy oh boy was it good

  20. Jesssays:

    could you use strawberry jam to get more of the strawberry flavor?

  21. Wow the hubby and son would love these!

  22. imandelsays:

    Would these cupcakes be just as good if I used blueberries instead of the strawberries and bananas?

  23. Corneliasays:

    Wanna try these delicious cupcakes, just have one question… What kind of vanilla do you use? Sugar, extract, bean or bean paste? Thank you.

  24. aledasays:
