Strawberry muffins are a lovely treat to enjoy with a cup of coffee in the mornings, to put in lunch boxes, or to serve as dessert after dinner. They’re also really simple to make. One of my favorite easy snacks to prepare for my family is muffins.
1 cup flour
Flour is a grain product made from wheat. It’s used in baking to make breads and cakes, as well as for pancakes, waffles and dumplings.
1/2 cup sugar
Sugar is a carbohydrate, and it helps to sweeten the muffins. It’s also a source of energy—just one teaspoon provides about 11 calories. You’ll likely find sugar in your muffin mix, but you can use any kind of sugar you like: honey, brown sugar or molasses are all good options!
1 orange, peeled and halved
Zest and juice of the orange
Grated zest of 1 lemon (optional)
2 eggs, separated
1 egg yolk
1 tsp baking powder
Baking powder is a leavening agent that helps to give muffins and other baked goods lift, height, texture and airiness. It also causes the bread to rise quickly, so that it can be ready for eating sooner than if you used only yeast or wild yeast. Baking powder contains an acid, which reacts with water in the mixture to produce carbon dioxide bubbles that give your muffin structure and volume as well as flavor.
The function of baking powder is twofold: it makes plain old muffins gooey inside (which we love) but also helps create little pockets of steam around your mouthful when you bite into them!
1/4 tsp baking soda
Baking soda is a leavening agent, which means it helps your muffin rise. It also gives the muffins that nice fluffy texture.
If you have a child who’s interested in science experiments, there are few better ways to teach them than with a classic experiment: baking soda and vinegar! This is an easy way to show kids how simple chemistry can be used to make something delicious—and fun!
1/2 tsp salt
Salt is a flavor enhancer. It’s important to have the right amount of salt in your diet, because it can help you to lose weight or stay healthy. Salt comes from many sources: table salt, sea salt and Himalayan pink salt are just three examples of different types of salts that you might find in stores or kitchens around your house. The main difference between these salts is whether they’re refined or unrefined (or sometimes even free, range).
Salt also helps keep our bodies running smoothly by helping regulate blood pressure levels and preventing dehydration when consumed with water every day, which makes it an essential ingredient for good health!
1 stick unsalted butter (melted)
You can use the melted butter to mix up the batter. If you have cold butter, it will be harder to get all of it in there because of how cold it is. So if you want your muffins to turn out right, melt your stick of softened unsalted butter at least 20 minutes before mixing up your muffins!
6 large strawberries (chopped)
How to Chop Strawberries
- Cut the top off of each berry and remove the stem with your fingers or a paring knife.
- Place whole berries in a small bowl, add lemon juice and toss to coat evenly; set aside to macerate until ready to use (about 10 minutes).
