Strawberry Shortcake Muffin

Ive been MIA for a while because my kid's summer vacation has started and I'm frequently hearing the "Iam SO bored, Ma"  dialogue.This summer is even more challenging, taking care of 2 kids.I barely log on to blogger.

I managed to squeeze some time to post this recipe.I love browsing the foodgawker website.Whenever Iam in need of a recipe, I browse this site as it has so many versions of the same recipe posted by many food bloggers.When I was searching for strawberry muffin recipe this one grabbed my attention.The name itself was catchy.It tasted so good.

This recipe was posted by Jennifer of Seasons and supper.Thanks Jennifer!!

I tweaked the recipe a little bit.

Baking powder - 2 tsp

Sugar - 1/2 cup

Brown sugar - 1/4 cup

Salt - 1/2 tsp

Butter - 1/2 cup cold and cut into cubes

Egg - 1

Whole milk - 1 cup

Strawberries - 10 cut into small pieces.

Vanilla - 1tsp

Method :

Preheat the oven to 350 deg F.Line the muffin pan with liners.

Grease or line12 muffin cups with paper liners.
In large bowl mix together the flour, baking powder,salt and sugar. Cut in cold butter with a pastry blender (or two knives) until it is in small pea-size pieces.

Spoon into muffin cups, making sure each muffin has some strawberries and bake for about 25 minutes. Cool completely in pan before removing.

So glad you enjoyed them,Ramya! I can sympathize with your summer "I'm bored" problem. I had years of that but thankfully, my youngest got her first summer job this year, so I'm hoping that's now behind me :)
