Homemade Strawberry Muffins

Wonderful homemade strawberry muffins from scratch are a great start to a morning. Light and full of sweet strawberries; they are a cinch to make.

The night before, I will sift my ingredients together and have the muffin pan ready, so when I wake up I don’t have a lot to do to make these. 

I always butter these beauties, but you may also use a simple glaze of powdered sugar and water.  It’s up to you.

Offering a fresh strawberry banana muffin recipe and strawberry rhubarb muffins from scratch below.

Homemade Strawberry Muffins

Easy Strawberry Muffins from Scratch

2 cups flour
1 cup white sugar
1 TBS baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup milk or half-and-half
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp strawberry extract (optional)
1-1/2 cups fresh strawberries, quartered

PREHEAT oven to 400 degrees. Grease or use paper lined muffin tin; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine eggs, milk, oil and strawberry extract. Stir into the dry ingredients and mix JUST until incorporated (there will be lumps). Fold in strawberries.

Spoon into greased muffin tins (don’t fill more than 3/4 full) and sprinkle tops lightly with white sugar. You may also use sanding sugar which reflect light and makes the muffins look beautiful.

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Run a knife around the muffins before you release them from the pan.  They have a tendency to stick at times.

If you want to reheat these beauties (or any other muffin for that matter), just wrap in foil and place in a preheated 325 degree oven for about 8 to 10 minutes. At that time you may drizzle with a glaze if you wish.
