Certain seasonal fruits are never missing in my kitchen. One such fruit is the strawberry. I remember in my youth my daily breakfast consisted of a fresh strawberry smoothie with a slice of toasted bread and butter. To this day, I still prepare it from time to time. My kids are sometimes a little picky when it comes to eating fruits, but they like strawberries. They don’t like the smoothie like I do, but they’ll gladly eat the whole fruit as is or in desserts. Since strawberries are so versatile, you can always find different ways to prepare them. In this case, I’ll be sharing a very easy recipe that will give you new options for breakfast or dessert.

    Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center of muffin comes out clean.

Expert Tips

  • You can bake the muffins a day in advance so that they’re cold when you’re ready to decorate.
  • You can also keep the muffins refrigerated in a vacuum-sealed container.
  • If you don’t have lemons you can use lime. Just be sure not to grate the white of the fruit, only the skin.
