A Little Summer Baking

Strawberry Coffee Cake Muffins
I come from a long line of bakers.  My grandma and my aunts were all excellent bakers.  I love to cook and especially love to bake.  Probably because I love eating the stuff, and quite frankly, store bought doesn't hold up to home baked.  

Being that berry season is just beginning, I wanted to share this wonderful recipe for Strawberry Coffee Cake Muffins with you.  If you like to bake, you will LOVE this recipe!
They taste like the muffins my grandma used to make.  You can make them with just about any doesn't have to be strawberries.  But, I love to make them with strawberries because there are so few recipes that use them.  

The batter is made with buttermilk.  You don't have to use buttermilk but you should.  Something magical happens in baked goods when sour cream or buttermilk are used.  The results are just that much better!  It's worth it.  
Some of the berries get mixed into the batter and then more are sprinkled on top.  The muffins have a delicious crumble topping....oh, what's not to love?!!!
They are absolutely delicious!!!  Recipe makes 12 muffins.  If you don't gobble them up in a day or two, they can be frozen.

Happy Berry Season!


  1. We have a large strawberry patch but they aren't ripe yet can't wait to try this

  2. Appreciate this recipe however I am seeking out a cookie I used to make with strawberries. Lost my recipe in a fire and I only remember flour, oj, strawberries and not sure what else. If you can help I would appreciate it forever. Thanks in advance.

  3. So happy to have a recipe for baking with strawberries. Just received another for a strawberry tea loaf. I have a small berry patch but as soon as I bring them in the demand for cleaning, cutting & sugaring starts. I have made a strawberry jalapeño jelly which is tasty with cream cheese on a cracker.

  4. Looking forward to giving these a try - muffins plus strawberries - YUM!

  5. I just may need to make these muffins this weekend! Thanks for the recipe.
