These strawberry muffins are easy to make and will make any morning a good morning. Make these muffins with fresh or frozen sliced strawberries.

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries, sliced
  • granulated sugar for topping


Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.

In a large mixing bowl with an electric hand-held mixer on high setting, cream butter and sugar; beat in eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Blend in vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

With a wooden spoon, stir flour mixture into creamed mixture. Gradually stir in lemon peel and buttermilk until dry ingredients are just moistened; do not over-mix. Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan, filling each muffin cup about 2/3 full. Evenly spoon sliced strawberries onto the center of each muffin and sprinkle each with a little granulated sugar.

Bake strawberry muffins at 350° for 18 to 20 minutes. Cool in pan on rack for 5 minutes. Gently turn strawberry muffins onto the rack. Serve strawberry muffins warm.

mix it in, Member charlotte_leggy

my muffins came out yummy. the recipe made a lot of batter--enough for about 20 muffins. on the first batch, we put the strawberries on top. the muffins seemed a little dry. for the second batch, we cut up another cup of strawberries and mixed them in to the batter. plus we put strawberries and sugar on top. they were way better. plus we added a little bit of almond extract to the second batch.
