Glazed Strawberry Muffins

These muffins would be great when strawberries are in season or for Valentine's Day when you're looking for a festive treat. 

Recipe from Garnish and Glaze.

Directions

  1. Preheat over to 400 degrees F. Line muffin tins with paper liners or cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine the milk, buttermilk and vanilla extract together and set aside.
  4. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add one egg at a time, mixing thoroughly after each one. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, alternate between adding the flour mixture and milk mixture in 3 batches to the creamed butter mixture. Mix after each addition until almost combined. Gently fold in the strawberries.
  5. Spoon batter into muffin cups. Bake for 17-20 minutes until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove muffins from pan and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
  6. Meanwhile, whisk all of the glaze ingredients together. When the muffins are completely cool, dip the muffin tops in. Rotate and twirl the muffin for even coating. Enjoy! Makes about 16 muffins.
