Fresh Strawberry Muffins

by Laura

Last year we planted strawberry plants, but you don’t get strawberries until the year. Well it’s that time now, and my husband and kids harvested our first batch.
My cute husband came in and immediately washed the strawberries. I told him you aren’t suppose to wash them, until your ready to use them. So I had to use up my strawberries. Luckily I had just found this recipe for Fresh Strawberry Muffins from A Recipe A Day.
This muffins were tender and delicious. The down side is you really have to make these the day you bake them. I put some in a container for the next day and they were not so great. Because the strawberries have a lot of moisture in them and the muffins are so moist, they get gooey and gross the next day.

We love these muffins. After they cool, I freeze them on a cookie sheet uncovered. After they are frozen I put them in a freezer bag and pull out just what we need. Let them set to thaw. They are moist and keep very well. We can’t eat them all in a day.

Do you know if almond milk can be substituted for milk? Sounds delicious!

Hi – I was considering your muffins (that I found on another site) to use in an article I’m writing for Parade Magazine and tracked them back to you. Here’s the thief’s site: https://wendysfoodfiles.blogspot.com/2010/04/fresh-strawberry-muffins.html?m=0

just made these last week. the note at the end of the post says to eat them the same day. i put my leftovers in the freezer once they had cooled. just popped one in the microwave for about 35-40 seconds and it tasted just as good as right out of the oven! i’m making batches of muffins for a family reunion coming up and these are definitely on the short list

Thanks for the tip about not getting strawberries the first year. I planted some in "strawberry pots" this spring. I have some tiny strawberries, but not a "harvest". I don't think my family would have any trouble eating up those wonderful muffins!! Those look delicious!
