Directions See How It's Made
- First rinse and clean the strawberries. Place them in a small bowl. Pour some milk over the strawberries to cover. Soak for 1 to 2 hours. (This should get the seeds to fall off. If the seeds don't bother you, then skip this step.).
- Prepare the muffin tin, either grease it or place cupcake liners in it.
- Preheat the oven to 400°F.
- In a large bowl, mix the brown sugar, the oil and the egg until smooth.
- Add the orange juice, the mashed bananas and the vanilla sugar and mix again until smooth.
- Then add the flours and the baking powder.
- Strain the berries. Discard the milk. (Do not add the milk to the mixture!).
- Mix until all ingredients are just moist and no dry clumps remain.
- Fill the muffin tins 2/3 full of the batter.
- Bake at 400°F for 15 - 20 minutes.
- Remove from oven.
- Let the muffins cool in the tins for about 10 minutes.
