Strawberry Muffins Recipe

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.

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?

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


Muffin batter

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, stems removed
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Paper muffin tin liners


  • 1/4 cup chopped, toasted pecans
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Strawberry butter

  • 3-4 large fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 powdered sugar


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F or 190°C. Chop strawberries into rough pieces.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Then add the strawberries and stir gently to combine.
  3. Crack the eggs into a different bowl. Add melted butter, milk, and vanilla extract. Mix by hand until the ingredients are well blended.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Fold gently until there are no more white flecks.
  5. Insert paper liners into your muffin tin. Pour the batter into the lined muffin tray.
  6. Top muffins with streusel.
  7. Bake muffins for about 25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Remove the muffins from the oven and let them cool.
  8. Then make the strawberry butter. Chop the strawberries. Add the sugar and butter to a food processor and pulse until combined. For a smoother butter, add the strawberries to the processor and pulse a few more times. If you prefer a chunkier butter, move the butter-sugar mix to a bowl and gently fold in the strawberry chunks by hand.

Am I missing something? I don't see anything about streusel or strawberry butter until I get to the comments.

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!
