Easy Strawberry & Yogurt Muffin Recipe

Easy-Strawberry-&-Yogurt-Muffin-Recipe

When it comes to food, not much has been on my mind besides the Get Grillin’ event I’m hosting with Marla of Family Fresh Cooking.  Well that, and strawberries. From Easy Strawberry Sorbet (three ingredients, people) to Frozen Strawberry & Lime Daiquiris, it is safe to say that I am smitten with the sweet, red fruit. The last day of school is tomorrow and I wanted to make a treat for my boys. These muffins are made moist with yogurt and fragrant with the fresh berries. What did my boys think? They thought that summer holidays were off to a great start.

The recipe:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and ground ginger.

StrawberryYogurtMuffin1

In the bowl of a stand mixer set on medium speed (or in a large bowl, using a hand mixer), beat unsalted butter and sugar until fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla extract.

Turn the mixer to low speed and beat in the flour mixture alternately with the yogurt, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Do not overmix. Stir in sliced strawberries. The batter will be very thick.

Coat 1 1/2 muffin tins (18 cups) with cooking spray. Fill each cup two-thirds full with batter. Sprinkle each muffin with turbinado sugar.

StrawberryYogurtMuffin2

Bake until the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 15 to 18 minutes, rotating the pans from top to bottom and back to front halfway through baking.

Cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pans and cool completely on a wire rack.

Fantastic! I went a little overboard with the strawberry buying at the farmer’s market this weekend (they just looked so good!). I definitely have enough to make these yummy-looking muffins. :-)

I’m totally addicted to mini muffins these days, so I’m going to try this recipe and downsize it into the two-bite minis. And, that way, I’ll get to eat two instead of just one!

“Mini” is always best, Lydia. I think I may have to try that myself.

These muffins look great! Do the strawberries make them soggy at all?

Reply

Megan, I was worried about that, but they weren’t soggy at all.
