    I really loved this recipe! The steps were simple and easy to follow and the results were amazing! The only change I made was replacing the food dye with drops of strawberry juice :> it gave it a nice pink colour and a more noticeable strawberry scent to the cupcakes. I have to make more soon since the first batch I made disappeared in less than a day :B

    My daughter wants a strawberry cake. I’ve been looking for a recipe without gelatin and this looks like a good one. How much cake would you guess this recipe makes? Enough for one circular cake pan? Ideally, I’d like enough for two cake pans. I can double the recipe if necessary.

    As much as I wanted to like this recipe, I was quite disappointed with this recipe. The texture was somewhat dry and dense with very little strawberry flavor. The top was also weirdly crunchy, which I assume is because of the egg whites. The frosting was also lacking in flavor. I will either replace the jam with my own strawberry compote, and using whole eggs, or I won’t be using this recipe again. :/
