strawberry muffins

July 23, 2011  •  Category:



These are extra-light textured, extra-moist, slightly spongy, studded with fresh strawberry bits, doused in fresh strawberry syrup.


  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 4 ounces of yogurt (114 g.)
  • 4 ounces of melted unsalted butter (114 g.) Can substitute oil
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 2 cups of cut-up strawberries


  1. Hull and cut the strawberries in small dice; cover them with one cup of sugar and let them macerate and give up their juice for two hours or longer.
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl.
  3. Mix the remaining sugar with the melted butter, add the yogurt and vanilla and the eggs, mixing thoroughly; add the dry ingredients and finally add the cut-up strawberries, leaving their juice. Pour the batter into muffin cups, 3/4 full and bake in a preheated oven at 350F until the muffins are golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Poke a few holes and pour one tablespoon of the strawberry syrup on each muffin; use more if needed. Let the syrup soak for a few minutes and serve.

    Your strawberry recipes are making me berry crazy! I bought a bunch yesterday to make jam with, but I might have to set some aside for these lovely muffins.

    Love adding yogurt to baked goods, it adds such a nice texture and slightly tangy flavor. These look wonderful, Joumana.

    Yes, must do these before the “real” strawberries go away. The photos are stunning!

    I love recipes that look like you can substitute whatever fruit is in season, and this looks like that kind of recipe. But, the strawberries look divine and they have oodles at the market right now. Although, I have a pint of blackberries in the fridge as we speak. Hmmm…….

    Thanks for another lovely post!
