homemade strawberry muffins

Here’s a delightful recipe for homemade strawberry muffins:


  • 1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk (or 2/3 cup milk mixed with 2 teaspoons lemon juice or vinegar)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, diced
  • Optional: Additional granulated sugar for topping


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease or line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. Prepare Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
  3. Combine Wet Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, buttermilk, egg, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  4. Mix Wet and Dry Ingredients: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
  5. Fold in Strawberries: Gently fold in the diced strawberries until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  6. Fill Muffin Cups: Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup about 2/3 full.
  7. Optional Topping: If desired, sprinkle a little granulated sugar over the tops of the muffins before baking. This will add a nice crunch to the finished muffins.
  8. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. Cool: Allow the muffins to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Serve: Once cooled, serve your strawberry muffins warm or at room temperature. They’re best enjoyed fresh but can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days.

Feel free to adjust the sweetness of the muffins by adding more or less sugar according to your preference. You can also add a streusel topping or a glaze for extra flavor if desired. Enjoy your homemade strawberry muffins as a delightful breakfast treat or snack!
