Strawberry N' Creme Muffins - Just Like Eat N' Park! Copycat

"Eat n' Park is a popular local restaurant chain in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. They are rightfully famous for their salad bar and scrumptious baked goods. These strawberry creme muffins are (almost!) like the ones served at their breakfast buffet. This recipe originally appeared in the Kitchen Mailbox column of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, June 21, 2007."

    Can you make it into a loaf?

    30 minutes is too long to bake - 20-25 is more than enough. A quick and very easy way to dispose of strawberries that aren't worthy of eating by themselves. Tastes just like Eat n Park.

    I had some strawberries that needed using up, so decided on muffins. These are very easy to assemble and have a nice crumb. :)

    Thank you, thank you, from one Shannon to another! We just moved east from Pittsburgh, and my son is obsessed with these muffins. You have made one happy little man and I haven't even made them yet! (Giving the rating based simply on my happiness at finding the recipe!)

    My husband is obsessed with strawberry muffins but I couldn't find a great recipe. When I say Eat n Park I knew I had to try them. I'm glad I did. Thanks for the great recipe. PS: Using brown sugar is great too.

    It's been a while since I've lived near an Eat N' Park, but these are just like the muffins I loved!


<p><strong><em>Thank you to everyone who has tried my recipes!</em></strong> I appreciate your feedback and the fact that you took the time to post a review.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>I am a vegetarian (pescetarian) who occasionally indulges in sushi and seafood, so the majority of my recipes reflect my preferences. I always try to offer substitutions in my recipes that can be made for my carnivorous friends. <br /> <br />I believe that vegetarians can make just about ANY meat dish under the sun by making smart substitutions of vegetarian mock meats, tofu, or vegetables. If a dish calls for meat or poultry, I NEVER let that stop me. I can make just about ANYTHING vegetarian...and taste just as good, if not BETTER, than the real thing. <br /> <br />&nbsp;<br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /></p>
