Hello everyone! I am reviving my blog as of today! I have missed you all, and hope that you will follow me still, even after such a long absence! Today I thought since we are approaching the summer and all that is fresh fruit, I would feature a recipe with strawberries!
I saw a large container of strawberries at the grocery store and decided I HAD to have some, so, I bought them, got them home and realized rather quickly that the container was way too large for us to eat before the strawberries began to die! \i needed to make something with them that was quick, easy and loved by my whole family so that I would not have to throw them out! Aha!muffins, I thought! so, I took my basic muffin recipe, tweaked it a little, added strawberries, and some blueberries too, and voila! These muffins are moist, and taste like summer! Even my son, who does not love muffins is eating them! This recipe is a winner!
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cups milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped strawberries
1/2 cup blueberries, fresh
3 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Line your 12 large muffin cups with liners, or spray with non stick spray (or both)
Stir topping ingredients into a small bowl and set aside.
Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg and mix well.
Place flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl and mix just to combine. Add flour mixture and milk alternately to the butter mixture. Stir until just combined. Add in the fruit, being careful not to mash them up. Stir until just combined.
Spoon into prepped muffin cups and sprinkle with the topping mixture.
Bake for 20-25 mins
Enjoy with butter, or strawberry jam - can't ever have enough strawberries, can we?
