Strawberry Muffins

Recipe by PollyPocket
READY IN: 1hr 45mins
YIELD: 12 muffins




  • Combine the strawberries and 1/2 cup sugar in a small bowl, and set aside for 1 hour. (If chopping fresh strawberries, I find that most of a 16 oz. package will make 1 1/2 cups).
  • While you wait, go ahead and preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and prep the muffin pans with baking cups, or with grease.
  • Strain to separate the liquid and the strawberries, keep both parts.
  • Combine the flour, baking soda, nutmeg and salt; Set aside.
  • Mix the eggs, butter, vanilla extract and remaining 1/4 cup sugar and liquid from strawberries in a medium bowl.
  • Add flour mixture, and stir until just combined. Be careful not to over mix, it will be lumpy just make sure there are no more white patches.
  • Fold in reserved strawberries gently.
  • Spoon/scoop into 12 prepared muffin pans, fill about 3/4th of the way. Bake for 20 minutes, will be done when golden-brownish. Best enjoyed warm. :).
