If you’ve tried my Spectacular Blueberry Muffins or Raspberry Dark Chocolate Muffins, these should be next on your list. The base recipe is the same and I’m so pleased with it. They turn out big, beautiful, and perfect every time.

Glazed Strawberry Muffins

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 12 muffins

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt (can substitute light sour cream)
  • 1 heaping cup fresh, chopped strawberries (rinsed and dried)
  • For the Glaze:
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 to 5 teaspoons heavy cream or half-and-half, or more to reach desired consistency
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a 12 cup muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.

In large bowl beat eggs with an electric hand mixer. Add 1 cup white sugar and beat for a minute or two until completely combined. Pour in the oil, with beaters running, and then add vanilla. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, salt and baking soda.

Using a wooden spoon, mix flour mixture into wet mixture, a little at a time, alternating with the Greek yogurt.

Add the strawberries and mix with the wooden spoon just until combined. Divide the batter between the prepared muffin cups.

Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 22 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow muffins to cool for about 10 or 15 minutes and then carefully remove from tin to cool completely.

Combine ingredients for glaze in a small mixing bowl. Drizzle over completely cooled muffins.

Store leftovers in an airtight container.

    Fresh strawberries in the muffins! I’d love to have these for breakfast with my coffee. Love that berry season is here. I can imagine these muffins with blueberries, or blackberries… must be so good!

      They are very good with all sorts of berries. I’ve done them with blueberries, raspberries, and now strawberries. Blackberries may be next!
