Baking Recipe: More STRAWBERRIES..Strawberry Muffin

Oh, I hope you don't go oh! no..strawberries again o_0? It's funny how I can't seem to steer clear away from strawberries. I can't help it, it's one of my favourite berries..LOLs.

Actually, I had some left over fresh strawberries in the fridge, and since I was planning to pack some snack to the office, what better way to treat yourself to some healthier snack. Or least I try to think they are healthy.. Yes, I wouldn't buy a muffin as I find such joy to bake myself  Strawberry Muffins. All you got to do is pop it in a microwave oven, and pre-heat it for about 15 seconds or so and voila you will have a juicy fresh home baked warm muffin. Perfect to go with tea, milk or even coffee. Oh! since this recipe isn't exactly a super uber sweet strawberry muffin [yup.. I bolded it], you get to drizzle some honey and spread cream cheese over it. It's delish.. do try it sometime. Enjoy!

P/S: Just need a mixing bowl, spatula, some measuring spoons, a heat proof bowl and weighing scale. Minimal cleaning up ;). I've also tweaked the recipe by adding extra flavouring agents like our baking best friend" The Vanilla".

Recipe- adapted from BBC's Olive magazine

yields approx. 6-8 large muffins and 1 dozen medium sized muffins

For the strawberry muffins
100g  or 1/2 cups caster sugar
1tbsp baking powder
250g or 2 1/4 cups all purporse flour
1 large egg
175ml or 2/3cups+ 1tbsp milk
75g butter or 1/3 cup butter, melted
150g or 1 cup strawberries, cut into cubes
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Turbinado sugar, to sprinkle (optional)

Note: Both salted and unsalted butter is fine. In this case, I had some unsalted butter in hand, so I used unsalted butter this time. If you do like to add some salt to the batter, 1/8 tsp of salt is sufficient.

To prepare strawberry muffins:

1. Preheat oven to 180C approx. 350 degrees. Line cupcake pan with cupcake liners or grease them with a little butter and sprinkle some flour, if you do not have cupcake liners.

2. Sieve and combine sugar, baking powder and flour in a large bowl.

3. In a seperate mixing bowl, using a whisk lighly beat egg and milk together and stir in melted butter. With a fork or spatula, fold in siefted flour, sugar and baking powder. It does not need to be thoroughly mixed. A good muffin should have some lumps left in the batter.

4. Spoon muffin mixture into prepared muffin/cupcake pans and sprinkle some turbinado sugar (optional). Bake for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean or until the tops of muffin are golden brown in colour.



  1. I really would like to have one of these for breakfast-you have kicked in my craving for today. They look simply delicious! Thanks for sharing

  2. Yum! I always make blueberry muffins but never seem to make strawberry muffins and I don't know why because I absolutely love strawberry muffins. I was just looking for something to do with my piles of strawberries too though so it looks like I may have found an answer. This recipe looks scrumptious and great shots! Thanks for sharing.

  3. The muffins look fantastic. I love fresh strawberries.

  4. Jo dear! You have such a gorgeous blog...I just noticed you don't have RSS Feed, which is so important to have to get your blog out there in "blogsphere" for people to find you!
    It's so easy to subscribe to not just RSS, but other feeds as well!
    Love your strawberry a matter of fact I have two boxes of strawberries, and not know what to make with them. I was ready to just freeze them whole, but now I know what to make.
    They are so pretty and oh, so yummy as well!

  5. Looks delicious - as always. The pictures are incredible! I don't blame you for steering towards strawberries - they're one of my favorites, too!
