Perfect Strawberry Muffins

You might have noticed that we love muffins if you’ve been following us for a while. When I’m in the mood to bake but not do dishes, muffins are my go-to

These strawberry muffins are perfect — they are so quick and straightforward, you could make them in the morning for breakfast.

How to Make Muffins Bursting with Fresh Strawberries

We make a version of these muffins all the time — sometimes swapping strawberries for other fruits like blueberries. The batter is straightforward — flour, baking powder, a little oil, egg, milk, and vanilla extract.

Perfect Strawberry Muffins

In the strawberry muffin recipe below, you’ll notice we added a few extra spices to the batter — cinnamon and finely ground black pepper. It’s not often you see black pepper in sweet baked goods, but trust us, it’s so good.

You don’t specifically taste the pepper, but it lifts the flavor of everything in the muffin. Try it. We love it.

Adding the strawberries to muffin batter

Try to use strawberries that are sweet and flavorful for these muffins. If you can’t find them, try other berries — blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, or cherries would be amazing.

Just before baking, we add a sugary top to the muffins. It’s completely optional, but we love the tiny bit of crunch it adds once they’ve baked.

Strawberry Muffins

the pioneer woman's strawberry muffins recipe

Is there a better way to start the day than with a warm, sugar-topped strawberry muffin? While many think muffins are a treat reserved for the weekend or even a special-occasion brunch party, this recipe is so easy you can enjoy muffins any day of the week! (Muffin Mondays should totally be a thing, right?) Just like Ree Drummond’s “Awesome-est” blueberry muffins, this recipe uses yogurt to make a batter that’s thick enough to keep the berries from sinking to the bottom but still bakes up fluffy and tender. These are so good slathered with soft butter, but they’re extra lovely with Ree’s sweet and delicious strawberry butter!

What’s the secret to light and fluffy muffins?

Follow two rules for light and fluffy muffins every time: First, make sure the cold ingredients like dairy and eggs are at room temperature. Second, don’t over-mix the batter. This recipe calls for melted butter, which stirs together easily with the dry ingredients. Stir the batter just until no dry pockets of flour are remaining, about 12 to 14 good stirs—and be sure to scrape the bottom of the bowl!

When do you add the strawberries to strawberry muffins?

It’s best to stir the berries into the batter gently at the end of making the batter to protect them from getting mashed by the spoon too much. To make sure the muffins have plenty of pretty berries on top, hold back about 1/2 cup of the berries and gently press them into the tops of the scooped batter in the muffin cups. As the muffins bake, the batter expands up and out (like a mushroom), so avoid placing any berries near the outer edges to keep the muffins from sticking the pan.YIELDS:1 dozenPREP TIME:0 hours 10 minsTOTAL TIME:0 hours 30 minsIngredients
