Strawberry Muffins and Tuesday Tag-Along

Welcome visitors from Tuesday Tag-Along! I'm glad you stopped by! I've got a little bit of everything going on at my blog. Crafting, sewing, decorating and always a recipe! Poke around a little and be sure and say hi!



I found both this muffin recipe over at Confessions of a Bakeaholic. Since it's strawberry season I thought I'd give it a try. I didn't add the orange zest because I was out of oranges, but I did add about 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips. They were delicious! She has two different Strawberry Muffin recipes posted, this first one she got from America's Favorites:Bake Sale. The other recipe came from Cooking Light and it's just a lighter version of Strawberry Muffins. I'll post that recipe tomorrow.

Strawberry Muffins

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 cup uncooked old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
1 t vanilla
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
Finely grated zest of one orange

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Grease bottoms only of 12 standard muffin pan cups or line with paper liners. Set aside.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Stir in oats and sugar. Combine milk, butter, egg and vanilla in a small bowl until well blended; stir into flour mixture just until moistened. Fold in the strawberries and orange zest. Spoon into prepared muffin cups, filling about 2/3 full.

Bake 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned and toothpick inserted into centers comes out clean. Remove from pan. Cool on wire rack 10 minutes. Serve.

I like the idea of the chocolate chips! Chocolate added to anything usually just makes it better! :)
