Strawberry Muffin #Recipe

Recipe, fresh strawberriesThis morning I woke up and wanted to start the new year with fresh, from scratch muffins. I had a bunch of fruit leftover from my New Year’s Eve “Party” so I looked to see what I had the most of. It turns out I had strawberries. I’ve never made from scratch muffins before, besides apple, so I had no idea where to start. I did a quick Google search on my phone for strawberry muffins and came across this recipe from A Recipe A Day. It looked simple, yummy, and best of all I had all the ingredients without running to the store! To make it even more amazing that I made these muffins from scratch, I didn’t pull out my mixer, so I even mixed everything by hand! Her recipe calls for mixing together cinnamon and sugar to top the muffins. I already had the store bought mixture, so I just sprinkled some of that on top. I don’t think I used enough, and next time I’ll definitely add more. Here’s her recipe:

Strawberry Muffin Recipe

  • ½ c butter, softened
  • ¾ c sugar

  4. Spoon batter into muffin pans.
  5. Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over muffins. (If you cheat like I did and use the shaker cinnamon sugar combination, make sure you sprinkle enough!)
