How to Make Strawberry Muffins
This muffin recipe is simple, using basic ingredients you probably already have on hand.
For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:
- baking powder
- lemon juice
If you want the freshest strawberries possible, look for a local farm. Many farms will allow you to pick the strawberries yourself, which not only allows you to get the best selection, but also lowers the price. It’s also a great activity for the family to enjoy together on the weekend.
Once you have gathered your ingredients, grab a small bowl and combine your dry ingredients: sugar, flour, and salt. Set aside dry ingredients while you prep your wet ingredients.
In a large bowl, mix butter, eggs, buttermilk and sugar until light and frothy. Then, add the dry ingredients to the bowl and stir until just combined. Do not overmix!
