Strawberry Muffins Recipe

Strawberry Muffins
I have never really done a lot of baking but today I decided to give it a try. So I quickly began surfing the net and came across a recipe for strawberry muffins. They looked and sounded amazing, but were they? After about a half hour of prep and another half for baking I was eating the most delicious muffins I have ever tasted in my life. Seriously, they were really that good. Now I just have to control myself and stop eating so many of them J
. They are good by themselves, but the strawberry butter just gives them an out of this world taste. This strawberry muffins recipe consists of three parts. The muffins, the streusel, and the strawberry butter. All of that might sound a little complicated, but it’s really easy and takes little time. If you like muffins I recommend you try this immediately. Hmm, maybe I should bake more often?

Strawberry Muffins Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup butter (melted)
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries (chopped and light tossed in 2 tablespoons of flour)
  • Streusel-
  • ¼ cup chopped toasted pecans
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter (melted)

Strawberry Butter-

  • ½ cup butter (softened)
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries (chopped)
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar (powdered sugar)
  • ¼ cup toasted pecans (finely chopped)

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees and grease the bottom and sides of an 18 cup muffin tin/s. Mix together all ingredients for the streusel and set aside.
  2. Mix together for the muffins- 1 ¾ cups flour, 2/3 cup sugar, and 2 teaspoons baking powder.
  3. In a separate bowl mix ½ cup milk, ½ cup melted butter, 2 beaten eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Gently mix this mixture into the flour mixture. Fold in lightly floured chopped strawberries.
  4.  Pour muffin batter into your tins and top with the streusel mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes (you can check to see if their done by sticking a toothpick into the muffins. If it comes out clean, their done)
  5. Allow muffins to cool for 10 minutes before removing them from the pan or else they will stick. Finish cooling muffins on a wire rack.
  6.  Now you are going to make the strawberry butter by thoroughly mixing ½ cup butter and 1 cup powdered sugar. Fold in chopped strawberries and toasted pecans. Chill until needed and soften before serving. The strawberries butter can be spread on the inside of halved muffins.

    Bobby-
    Had to laugh when I saw the strawberry muffins…I think winter is finally getting to us all. I live in Wisconsin, and had to make strawberry muffins 2 weeks ago just to confince myself that spring was on its way.

    Man those muffins look so good that you’ve motivated me to give this recipe a try. Note: I’ve never baked a day in my life, but they just look too yummy to pass on. I will give you an update on how things work out.

    Wish me luck,

    These muffins look amazing. I’m especially intrigued by the strawberry butter. Can you edit the post to let us know how much strawberry to put in? That detail seems to be missing. Thanks! Love your blog!

    Angie – opps, haha. I must have forgot to put that in. Thanks for noticing. The strawberry butter uses 1/2 cup of chopped strawberries. I will edit the post as well. I hope you enjoy them!

    i was wondering do u need to make the streusel? would there be a difference?

  11. Bobby — February 21, 2009 @ 9:03 pm

    Dan -
    ¼ cup chopped toasted pecans
    ¼ cup brown sugar
    ¼ cup all purpose flour
    2 tablespoons butter (melted)

    I think it would taste ok with out it though.

    Thank you so much for this recipe! I have been baking for a long time and haven’t made muffins before that were so delicious. My roommate is still asleep and I look forward to surprising him with them. I also love that if you want a little less sweet all that’s required is taking away the streusel. Thanks again and I can’t wait to see what’s next!

    I made these and they were very good,,,,Scrumptious….I wasnt sure about the strawberries, I added 1 cup of chopped strawberries…wasnt sure if it meant that or just a cup of strawberries chopped…they came out so I guess I did it right
