It's a running joke that whenever I whip up this recipe, there's never a single bite remaining for the next day



2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup softened butter

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups diced strawberries

3 teaspoons granulated sugar (for topping)

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (for topping)


Preheat your oven to 400°F. Prepare a muffin tin with grease or muffin cups.

Cream the softened butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg thoroughly.

In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt.

Gradually blend the dry ingredients into the butter mixture, alternating with the milk. Mix just until combined.

Gently fold in the chopped strawberries.

Combine the extra sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.

Fill each muffin cup about two-thirds with batter. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mix on top.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.

Let the muffins cool in the tin briefly, then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
