Strawberry muffins, great for breakfast or a snack

Muffins are one of my favorite things to bake. There are so many great flavors to choose from that I never get bored of eating them. Strawberry muffins are great year round, although admittedly I prefer them in the summer when the strawberries are in season. That being said, it’s great to have that taste of summer during the dreary winter months. This is a recipe I found online a while back and have modified over time.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine the milk, oil, and eggs.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.

Toss in the strawberries, coating them in the flour mixture. Fresh or previously frozen strawberries can be used in this recipe.

Pour the liquid mixture into the flour mixture, adding in the vanilla extract, and stir thoroughly.

Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full. These muffins expand quite a bit while cooking, so you do not want to overfill the muffin trays.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes. Cool for a few minutes before removing from the tray and placing on a cooling rack.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 5 cups flour
  • 3 cups chopped strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, combine milk, oil, and eggs.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Toss in strawberries, coating them in the flour mixture.
  4. Pour in the liquid mixture, adding in the vanilla extract and stir thoroughly.
  5. Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full, these muffins will expand quite a bit so you don’t want to overfill the muffin tray. Bake at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes.
  6. Cool for a few minutes before removing from the tray and placing on a cooling rack.

These strawberry muffins make an excellent snack ro breakfast, bringing the taste of summer with them.

      I love muffins for breakfast as well, and I’m not much of a breakfast person. I hope you enjoy them when you do give them a try.

      They are great, especially since they are decently moist but still crumbly like most muffins. Enjoy when you do make them.

    the vanilla with the strawberry… yum. these look so good! My next favorite are apple-cinnamon streusel muffins. but the latter doesn’t freeze well do to the topping. So I have to eat my baker’s dozen in one sitting. 😉 Thank you for the recipe.
