Strawberry Muffins


I want to share with you all a sweet story that happened 5 years ago. I was pregnant with Thaara, then I suddenly started craving for strawberries a lot. At that time, it was not at all available in any store in Coimbatore.I know it was rare to get(I have had it once or twice only before that) but not that none of them will have it. Dad had inquired in almost all the shops there. The only response was if we get stock will let you know. I was so disappointed, you all know right, how a pregnant woman feels when she wants something to eat and didn't get it. Then one day my brother surprised me with a box of strawberries. My brother had asked his friend from Ooty to get it,(since it was available there at that time) and send it across. I was so delighted to get it, like I won a lottery. I was really touched that my little brother got me what I wanted to make me happy. So thoughtful of him!! So whenever I see strawberries, I always think about this. Thaara loves strawberries a lot. In whatever form I give her, she is ready to have it. Now you all know what this is all about. Yes!! A recipe with strawberries.. Strawberry Muffins.. 
As I was browsing for recipes for Strawberry Muffins, I came across this recipe from, Butter Yum . I tried this and the result was awesome. A wonderful, soft and moist muffins. 


 

What are the ingredients needed?

Diced Strawberries, 1 1/2 cups(approx.)
All purpose flour, 2 cups
Baking powder, 2 teaspoons
Salt,1/2 tsp
Unsalted butter(room temperature), 1/2 cup
Sugar, 1 cup
Eggs, 2 nos.
Vanilla Extract, 1 tsp
Milk, 1/2 cup


How it is made?

  1. In a bowl, sift together all purpose flour, salt and baking powder and keep it aside.
  2. In another bowl cream butter and sugar together and beat in eggs, one at a time and add vanilla extract and mix well.
  3. Then add this mixture little by little to the flour alternating with milk and keep mixing till you get a homogeneous mixture. But take care not to over mix the batter. 
  4. Finally fold in the strawberries. 
  5. Prepare the muffin pan by greasing and flouring it. Or you can simply use muffin liner. Then pour in the batter in the prepared pan and bake at 375 F for 25- 30 min till the tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
  6. Then let it cool and enjoy.

  7. I love strawberries too - we take them for granted here because they are so readily available. I love that your brother got some for you when you were craving them.... that was a very sweet thing to do. So glad you like the muffins - your photo is great! Much better than the one I have posted on my blog (I was a newbie blogger at that time I made them and wasn't as skilled with the camera yet - I should make them again so I can get a better picture posted). Thanks so much for the mention and link to my blog. I hope you'll visit again soon.!!
