Strawberry Muffins

I wanted to bake some blueberry muffins this week. But could not find any good ones and they are getting expensive. I went to HEB yesterday and saw that the strawberrys are in seasons. I bought 2 packs for USD 3. Gosh.. they are big and fat and juicy.

I decided to make some strawberry muffins instead!

The strawberry muffins - fresh from the oven !!!!!

I am happy with the perfect dome shape

and more muffins !!!!!!!!! See the strawberrys peeping out???

Muffins are one of the easiest bake. They are not cake.. but rather "quick bread". And Yes.. it is quick and easy to make muffins.. just 4 basic steps:
i) Whisk all dry ingredients together
ii) Whisk all wet ingredients together
iii) Mix the wet ingredients to the dry ingredient
iv) Fold lightly to combine

I used a simple muffin recipe and added the strawberry and also added a simple streusel topping

Ingredients for Muffins:
8 oz low cake flour
3.5 oz sugar
2.5 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup packed brown suggar
1 tablespoon flour
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter
1. whisked together first 4 dry ingredients together
2. whisked together the remaining wet ingredients ( make sure all ingredients at room temperature)
3. Pour the wet ingredients to the dry ingredient
4. Fold lightly. Do not overmixed
5. For Streusel, Combined all ingredients until it resembled fine bread crumbs
6. Poured muffin batter onto prepared muffin pans
7. Topped with streusels
8. Baked at 425 F for first 10 minutes, and reduced to 420F for remaining 10
