I have to admit that I'm not the biggest fan of strawberry.
Everytime I go to the grocery store,
Strawberry is always my last choice of fruit that I'll bring home with,
I haven't bought any strawberries for at least a year.
If I saw strawberry cake and chocolate cake on the menu,
Chocolate will be my immediate and final answer.
So how come I'm making strawberry muffins today?
My friend brought a giant box of strawberries to my house,
(Shouldn't my friend know better about my taste? >_<")
Right after I saw these little red things in the fridge,
My brain started to think,
It's trying to figure out a way to make those strawberries disappear,
Disappear in a breakfast-friendly way,
40 minutes later,
Strawberries turned strawberry muffins!-
Ingredients (for 8)?
1/2 stick of butter (melted, in room temperature)
1/2 cup of milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup of all purpose flour
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1/4 cup of brown sugar
2 teaspoons of backing powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 cups of chopped strawberries
First let's preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheits.
When I'm baking something,
I like to get the dry and wet ingredients ready first,
And then mix them in the end,
It just makes life much easier for me.
So first just combine the flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking soda, and salt in a big mixing bowl,
Have another mixing bowl ready, add milk, melted butter, egg, and vanilla extract in it.
Since we're using fresh chopped strawberries here,
Go ahead and prepare the fruit first and set it aside.
Now move on to the mixing part,
Mix the dry ingredients well, and pour in the chopped strawberries,
Give it a slight stir,
Have to be gentle here because we don't wanna mash the strawberries.
Meanwhile, mix the wet ingredients well, and pour the mixture into the dry ingredients.
Stir it till everything's combined nicely.
Have a muffin tin ready with 8 paper muffin cups in it.
Pour in the mixture and back for 25 to 30 minutes,
Or till slightly browned on the top,
I used a six muffin tin and saved the remaining mixture for a small round baking pan-
My whole house smells like strawberries now,
Maybe next time I should give strawberry dessert a try when I eat out.
