Ingredients You'll Need

Before you start baking, make sure you have all the necessary ingredients:

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups of fresh strawberries, chopped

Optional Streusel Topping:

  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter, melted

Optional Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Step-by-Step Instructions

1. Preparing the Batter

  1. Preheat Your Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a muffin tin with paper liners or lightly grease with cooking spray.
    1. Mix the Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
    1. Combine the Wet Ingredients:
    • In a separate bowl, mix the melted butter, milk, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
    1. Blend Wet and Dry Mixtures:
    • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and gently stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; the batter should be lumpy.

    2. Incorporating Strawberries

    1. Fold in the Strawberries:
    • Gently fold in the chopped strawberries, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the batter. Overmixing can make the muffins dense, so keep your stirring to a minimum.

    3. Baking the Muffins

    1. Fill the Muffin Tin:
    • Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup about 2/3 full.
    1. Optional Streusel Topping:
    • For added flavor and texture, mix the brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Drizzle the melted butter over the mixture and stir until crumbly. Sprinkle the streusel topping over each muffin.
    1. Bake to Perfection:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 18-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. The tops should be golden brown.

    4. Finishing Touches

    1. Optional Glaze:
    • If you prefer a glazed finish, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. Drizzle the glaze over the muffins once they've cooled for about 10 minutes.

    5. Serving and Storing Your Muffins

    1. Serving Suggestions:
    • Serve your strawberry muffins warm or at room temperature. They pair perfectly with a cup of coffee or tea.
    1. Storage Tips:
    • Store any leftover muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days. For longer storage, freeze the muffins in a plastic bag or container for up to three months. Thaw at room temperature or reheat in the microwave for a quick treat.
