Strawberry Muffins
Strawberry Muffins … bringing out the best in fresh strawberries

My wonderful neighbour gave me 2 punnets of organic strawberries the other day. They were the freshest strawberries I had ever seen, and I’m not sure if it had to do with them being organic, but there were none of the sourness that is typical with most strawberries I had tried. With such fresh ingredients at hand, I had to put them to good use or it will be a big waste.

Strawberry Muffins
Delicious & Pretty Strawberry Muffin

I chanced upon this simple strawberry muffin at nibbledish and I know that this is the perfect recipe to use for the strawberries – the recipe looks simple and I just know it will be good. I made minor changes to the recipe, and the end result did not disappoint – the muffins are absolutely delightful. I had some for tea break, and as for the extras, I froze them in ziplock bags and will toast them for a few minutes till they are warm whenever I want a muffin or two. Hope you will like this recipe too ^o^

Ingredients
(Makes about 30 small muffins)

- 3 cups (375g) plain flour
- 3 eggs
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 2 cups (450g) caster sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla essence/extract
- 1.5 cup diced strawberries
- 1 cup (250ml) milk
- 125 gms butter, cut to small pieces and melted at room temperature

Directions

1. Sift flour, baking powder and sugar together, and mix well.
2. Add in milk, eggs, vanilla essence and butter and stir until just blended (and lumpy). Be careful not to over mix as it will result in a tough texture.
3. Fold in the diced strawberries into the mixture. Place baking cases in muffin tins. Spoon the mixture into the cases (each about 2/3 filled).
4. Bake for 20 minutes in preheated oven of 200C (400F) or until slightly golden brown. Allow to rest for several minutes before serving.

    I tried making a berry muffin a while ago and it didn’t quite turn out… Those look fantastic though! My parents had a strawberry patch when I was a kid, it was the best.

    That’s so nice of your neighbours. I haven’t had strawberry muffins before, usually go for blueberry ones. Good idea to freeze them! I know what to do with the extra muffins next time. :D
