I love this time of year when there is just so much fresh fruit to eat! I go crazy in the supermarket produce section because it’s all so bright and cheerful looking just begging to be put in my cart! Not to mention the size of the berries, they are so sweet and scrumptious! Last week my daughter and I felt the urge to bake and the baby, aka the puppy, was tuckered out at the time and allowed for it! We decided on Strawberry muffins and I thought that some honey added to them would be super good, so we created Strawberry Honey Muffins. Since the puppy is napping and the kids are all playing (I have 5 here at the time!) I’m going to make this post short but sweet, hehe, literally sweet! I’m also hoping to maybe have time for one more post after this, I have some great recipes backed up! These muffins are so amazing, it made around 18 if I remember correctly (should have written that down!) and they did not last long at all, my son woofed them down, we all loved them. I love when then kids so thoroughly enjoy the things I make. The muffins are so sweet and the honey in them gives them almost a slight chewy texture (I LOVE chewy!) you just must make these!
3 cups flour
1.5 cups of sugar +more for sprinkling on top of muffins before baking
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup of milk
1/5 cups of fresh strawberies, chopped (you could use frozen, but don’t, hehehe
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat over to 350 degrees.
In a medium size mixing bowl beat together lightly the oil, milk, eggs and vanilla.
In a large mixing bowl mix flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Add chopped strawberries and the honey and mix lightly until the berries are well coated. Add the milk mixture and again, mix well. If you are using liners fill the liners with batter until liner is 3/4 full with batter. If you are not using liners make sure to grease the muffin tin well and fill 3/4 of the way to the top. Sprinkle with sugar and bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes or until done!
