Muffin Monday: Strawberry Shortcake Muffins

Written & photographed by

This week’s delightful recipe comes from Seasons & Suppers, a blog I have subsequently fallen in love with due to the beautiful photos and fantastic sounding recipes.

A simple yet delicate batter keeps the muffins light and crumbly, similar in texture to strawberry shortcake. Cold butter is cut into the flour mixture as per making pastry, with diced strawberries gently folded into the mix. If you’d like to dust the tops with icing sugar I say all the power to ya – but honestly these little gems of a muffin are perfect when kept simple.

I love how the flavours are straightforward, the berries kept centre stage. For me these muffins are the epitome of summer out here on the west coast, and although the strawberries were fashionably late this year due to lame weather they have (finally) arrived! And I plan on making many more batches of these muffins to celebrate.

Speaking of celebrating…look who stopped by for a bite?!

    These muffins sound fantastic and love the Strawberry Shortcake doll 😉 Bummed I missed out this week but had a balsamic fruit salad (and giveaway) that was scheduled for today. I think I’ll need to make these on my own though soon. So simple and tasty I bet! Happy Monday!
