Fresh Strawberry Muffins

Berry picking, and buying, is in full swing here in Ohio.  We have had strawberries in the store for a month or so, but they are nothing like the fresh locally grown ones you can buy right now.

There are so many wonderful things to do with strawberries.
 I like to keep a bowl cleaned, chopped and mixed with a tablespoon or so of sugar.  We add them to yogurt or ice cream, drizzle them over angel food cake, or bake with them.  

I have used the recipe below for years.  I actually tore it out of a Martha Stewart magazine years ago.  I really haven't changed it much.  I always double the recipe, which will give you 24 nice size muffins.

Fresh Strawberry Muffins

Makes 12 Muffins

1 1/4 tbsp melted butter
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 large egg
1 1/4 cup strawberries, chopped (any fruit can be used)

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Butter, or spray muffin tins.

2. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl; whisk to combine.

3. In a medium bowl, combine butter, vanilla, sugar, milk, and egg.  Fold butter mixture and fruit into flour mixture; don't over mix.

4. Spoon into muffin tins.  Bake until golden brown,  15 to 17 minutes.  

5. Serve warm or at room temperature.
