Food from the Beach House: Strawberries and Cream Muffins

Posted by | July 11, 2015 | Food from the Beach House | 4 Comments

IMG_9384Kyle is pretty much the most serious muffin connoisseur I’ve ever known. Since he was a toddler we’ve called him “The Muffin Man” (you know that song? we’ve been singing it to/about him since he was about 3 years old). The muffins he loves most are fruit muffins — blueberry, or any berry. And he’s partial to the Starbuck’s “Blueberry Muffin with Yogurt and Honey.” Over the years I’ve made many different muffin recipes for him, always in search of a five-star muffin for Kyle, or at least one that will compete with that Starbucks muffin.IMG_9380This morning I resurrected the “Strawberries and Cream” muffins I had made for Meera’s third birthday party. I hadn’t made these in a long time. I doubled the recipe, and made them as full-sized muffins (not mini muffins). My boys (all three of them) went crazy for these. They are not too sweet, and moist, and the fresh strawberries baked into them are so delicious. But the big deal is this: Kyle has decided that these are the best muffins he’s ever had. Like, ever. Which. Is. Huge.

These have, immediately, become a big huge giant hit for us and I’ll put them right into our beach house (and probably at-home-too) rotation.

They are so good!

The recipe is here:

    Yum! Those look amazing! I’m a big fan of muffins but haven’t done much baking since I went gluten free. I’m going to try making them with a gluten free flour mix and see how it goes! Do you ever substitute plain yogurt for the sour cream? I’m glad you found a recipe that satisfied your muffin man!

      Yes yogurt is totally fine to sub– I’ve often done muffins and loaves like this with plain Greek yogurt. Also, I hear you re: gluten free baking struggles. We went gluten free as a family for a while a couple years ago and I learned first-hand what a challenge it is re: baked goods. I found a couple baking mixes that were decent (I forget brand names for them now), but pricey. Good luck and let me know how they turn out!!

    I love these muffins, & I usually don’t do baked fruit. I know what I’m baking this week.

    This is a great recipe I’ve made it with Greek Yogurt. I also like to make This Peaches n’ Cream recipe:
    Happy Baking JMs!
