Summer Strawberry Muffins are bursting, fresh summer strawberries nestled inside light and fluffy sponge. Um, yes please! These sweet strawberry muffins are a delicious breakfast food. I’ve even served them to my kids for dessert. They can easily be made dairy-free, too! Serve them with a side of yogurt or just a cup of coffee and enjoy! Recently I revamped the website and brought in an awesome new formatting for recipes. The downside is hours and hours of re-entering my work. So, I'm a little slow but this summer recipe is now up in the new format for you to enjoy! TIP: I have made these with lots of different ‘milks.’ The higher the fat content of the milk you use, the more tender your muffins will be.

Ingredients

  • 3-¼ Cups Flour
  • 1-¼ Cups Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Baking Powder
  • 1-¾ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Yolk
  • 1-¼ Cups Milk or Milk Substitute
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • ¾ Cups Olive Oil
  • 1-½ Cups Strawberries diced
  • Brown Sugar for sprinkling optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400. Grease a muffin pan with baking spray, or oil and dust with flour.
  • Mix Flour, Sugar, Baking Powder and Kosher Salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Mix Eggs, Yolk, Milk, Vanilla, and Olive Oil in a separate bowl until fully combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Whisk until combined. Do NOT try to beat out the lumps. Just fully combine the ingredients.
  • Fold in the strawberries.
  • Using an old-style ice cream scoop, take one level scoop of batter per muffin cup.
  • Sprinkle the tops with a little Brown Sugar if using. The brown sugar creates a little crisp crust on the muffin top. Without it the muffins have a soft top. Either way is very good!
  • Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the center of the center muffins should come out clean. And the tops should be golden and starting to crack.

Notes

This is the way I like to start my day! The strawberries are a tart burst of fruit inside soft and sweet fluffy cake.
