Oh my goodness!! I decided to make these muffins in advance of Valentines Day and 'hide' them in the freezer for DH so that he has a nice breakfast treat to take to work. Well...that was super idea but I doubt they'll last 6 days. I tested one just as they're come out of the oven and pre:strawberry butter (not sure how they can possibly get any better)

One of my concerns on making this recipe was that I only had frozen strawberries. Not a problem. I'm sure they're great with fresh but in this case I was careful to drain surplus juice and toss with flour and the muffin was perfect. Thanks for a great recipe Sue!
