San Diego Strawberry Muffins

San Diego Strawberry Muffins


Everyone needs a vacation, right?  I know I'm ready, but I'm still a few months out (more on that to come... let's just say it's looking like a gondola ride is in my future and it's not at the Venitian in Vegas!).

In any case, my friend Roxanna, of A Little Bit of Everything, is taking a meander down the East Coast while spending some valued time her family.  Today we have the honor of filling in for Roxanna with a Guest Post.

If you haven't visited A Little Bit of Everything, you really are missing out.  Roxanna consistently delights me with her fabulous baked goods that have you throwing all cares of calories out the window.  My personal favorite, though I have yet to make it (mostly because I know I will eat the whole thing!) is the Ricotta Olive Oil Bread.  Take a peek here.  Have you ever seen anything so beautiful??
 
For today though... come join us in sunny San Diego as we enjoy peak strawberry season with a muffin that has become a favorite in our dance rehearsal car pool.  I've had requests for "those awesome strawberry muffins" time and again since we first made them.

Sweet strawberries are chopped into a low fat, whole grain batter and topped with Liv's favorite sprinkle of raw sugar.  Served regular size or mini, these little beauties don't last long.

Head on over to A Little Bit of Everything and see our Guest Post, and be sure give Roxana a big hello while you are there.



AND...

  2. Kim,
    I love strawberries, and your muffins look perfect with those ripe, juicy strawberries. The crunch of the sugar is a great way to top those beauties. Going over to Roxana'as now

  6. I have a strawberry muffin in the archives that I need to post soon. The Hubs brought home two full flats of strawberries (that were allegedly local but I have my suspensions), and we made a ton of freezer jam. Hope I can get some more this weekend for some shortcake and other fresh berry goodies!
