I mentioned a few weeks back I wasn’t done with the strawberry recipes. Today is the last recipe from the big batch of strawberries we picked a few months ago. I have to say that this recipe was my new favorite. I’ve never combined lemon and strawberries in a baked good before, so glad I gave it a try. The combination of sweet and tart is what made these muffins so good. They’re also pretty to look at too.
When baking muffins or cupcakes, I always let the kids pick out the liners for the pan. AG picked these out to match the lemons on the table. Girl after my own heart!
The fresh strawberries really made this recipe. The muffins are extra moist when you bite into them and then the lemon zest gives you that final tang. These muffins are full of flavor.
The recipe only makes 12 muffins, so if you’re making them for neighbors or friends, I would definitely recommend doubling it. I made them for breakfast for the week and passed the rest on to our neighbors. This recipe will definitely be one I pull out whenever I have fresh strawberries, perfect for spring or summer.
