Fresh Stawberry Muffins

The first day of Autumn is only 18 days away, but in many areas ( like Texas!) it is still hot.

Strawberry Muffins are a yummy treat to enjoy during these last days of summer!


Fresh Strawberry Muffins

1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup chopped strawberries

1. Gather your ingredients and preheat oven to 375F.




2. In a small bowl, combine oil, milk, and egg and vanilla. Beat lightly.


3. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugars, salt, baking powder and cinnamon.

4. Toss in chopped strawberries and stir to coat with flour.


5. Pour in milk mixture and stir together.

6. Fill a greased or paper lined 12 cup muffin tin. (If you would like larger muffins, fill only 8 sections and bake slightly longer.)


Bake at 375F for 15 to 18 minutes, or until slightly golden brown. Cool 10 minutes and remove from pans.


Served warm with a little butter!


Enjoy!

I'm pushing for autumn. Your treat looks wonderful, but I skipped strawberries and decided on pumpkin muffins instead. Do you think I would like some cooler weather? Oh, yes! Florida is with Texas ... frying.

Christopher will love these. While I prefer chocolate "anything", he is the same with berries.

A way to a son's heart is definitely with food. :)

Hi Kelli,

I can't believe this is the first time I'm visiting your lovely blog, with all the 'Show and Tells' I've seen countless times on people's blogs ;) - just signed up for your new magazine, what a treat! I'm sure I will be back to visit again many, many times.

Oh, I envy your weather in Texas! Over here - as you know - it has not really been VERY HOT this summer and now, it's already so cold outside when I am heading to work. Yes, fall is on its way... ;-(

I am looking forward to seeing your S&T tomorrow!

Have a wonderful hot summer day today!

Those are beautiful... Like your step-by-step directions, it makes it so easy to figure out, like how big you cut the strawberries.
