Strawberry Muffins

Fresh strawberries are an appealing fruit with numerous health benefits. Strawberries are in season and abundant right now, so they are a great choice for eating fresh or for using in recipes. This muffin recipe is rich with buttermilk, but not too sweet, allowing the strawberries to take center stage. I baked these for breakfast, but I predict I will be having another one for a snack later today.

Strawberry Muffins

1/2 cup sugar

  1. Great recipe! I'm getting a few strawberries from my plants but something is getting to them before I do! LOL! I'll have to go to the store to make these.....not a problem! How are you? I "lost" you I think when you changed your name but I looking at my "list" again instead of just what I have on my blog. So glad I did!

  2. The muffins look wonderful and so pretty on your plate, Anita. I've made a Strawberry Muffin from a favorite cookbook of mine, but I'll have to try your version.
    Happy weekend!

  3. My husband has been dropping hints that I need to make a batch of muffins. These would be perfect!
