Strawberry Cinnamon Muffin Ingredients
2 cups of flour
1/2 stick of butter
2/3 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 cup of plain yogurt
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
Strawberry Cinnamon Muffins Recipe Directions
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius).
Wash and hull the strawberries, then cube them and set them aside.
Grease a muffin tin or line it with baking cups.
Melt the butter and allow it to cool.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs together with the sugar until mixture is light. Then, add milk, yogurt, vanilla, and the melted butter. Gently whisk until well-mixed.
In another mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Add this to the mixture to the milk/yogurt mixture and stir until the flour just disappears. Then, add the cubed strawberries and gently stir them into the mixture.
Spoon the batter into either the greased muffin tin or into the baking cups in the muffin tin. Place the muffin tin into the oven and bake for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. When finished, invert them onto a cooling rack and allow them to cool sufficiently prior to consuming or serving.
