Last Friday, Whole Foods had the most amazing one day deal: 1 pound of fresh organic strawberries for $1.99. Well, let me tell you, that was a deal I couldn’t pass up! Look at what I made with 1/2 pound.
Do you like blueberry muffins? Do you like strawberries? Well, if so, you will absolutely LOVE these! Now, keep in mind that since the strawberries are fresh, these goodies don’t have long shelf life. Of course, that’s not a problem at our house. Are you ready for the recipe? Here you go!
Fresh Strawberry Muffins
Makes 1 dozen.
- 1 egg
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup diced strawberries (approx 1/2 pound)
(Note, you do not want to over mix your batter so do not use a mixer, you will combine all your ingredients by hand).
Preheat your oven to 400 Degrees F.
In a large bowl, add the egg and beat with a fork. Add the buttermilk, butter, sugar, salt, cinnamon, vanilla, flour, baking powder and baking soda. Stir until just blended. Fold in the strawberries.
Either grease a muffin tin or line with cupcake liners. Evenly distribute your muffin batter between the 12 muffin tins. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
