Strawberry Lemonade Muffins

25 May

I made these muffins for a friend’s birthday party with strawberries from FFTY and lemons from my parents’ tree. They were super-duper delish!

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups self-rising flour [Google how to make this if you don’t have it – that’s what I did]
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 (8-oz.) container sour cream [I didn’t have enough, I bulked it up with some yogurt]
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups diced fresh strawberries

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Combine flour and 1 cup sugar in a large bowl; make a well in center of mixture.
  2. Stir together sour cream and next 4 ingredients; add to flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Gently fold strawberries into batter. Spoon batter into lightly greased 12-cup muffin pans, filling three-fourths full. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup sugar over batter.
  3. Bake at 400° for 16 to 18 minutes or until golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on a wire rack 1 minute; remove from pans to wire rack, and cool 10 minutes.
