Strawberry Muffins

I'm a muffin girl.  And a cupcake girl.  If I had a choice, I would pick muffins or cupcakes over a slice of cake any day.

It's like your own personal pretty cake.  And nobody will want to steal yours because it is bigger.

(Can you tell I have a complex from being raised in a household with 6 brothers who always wanted to steal my food?  Or fought over the biggest piece?  Yes, yes I do.)

Muffins are awesome.  And they have so many flavors.

Coffee Cake
Lemon Poppyseed
Banana Nut
Etc., etc., etc.!!! 

But until last week I had never had a strawberry muffin.  Never ever.  So, I altered a taste of home recipe called "Berry Cream Muffins."

{Come on over for breakfast, we'll sip coffee and gorge ourselves on these, okay?}

Let me just warn you though, these are not "healthified, fuel you for the next 10 hours" kind of muffins.  These are like dessert muffins.  They are like the most moist, rich, delicious little cake ever.

And I like cake.  Seriously, I kept having to tell myself to "step away from the muffins!"  while my tastebuds kept screaming "eat ALL the muffins!!"

It was intense.  =D

It's a simple recipe, that tastes like something fresh out of a fancy schmancy bakery.  Don't want to use strawberries?  Use blueberries, or raspberries, or whatever you want to throw in.  It'll be delish.  Promise.

Strawberry Muffins
yield: 1 dozen

2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups fresh chopped strawberries
2 eggs
1 cup (8 oz. sour cream)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract  (lemon would be yummy, too!)

1.  Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  
2.  Combine wet ingredients (minus the strawberries) and mix well.
3.  Stir wet and dry mixtures together, just until moistened.  
4.  Gently fold in strawberries.
5.  Fill greased muffin pan and bake at 400 degrees for 18-22 minutes. 
6.  Cool for at least 5 minutes before removing from pan.  (I think I did 10.) 


Oh...and try not to eat them all.  Because you'll want to. =D
