For this recipe, I used fresh strawberries that I had just bought. They were very ripe but not very sweet, so decided to try this recipe! Makes for delicious muffins!
Berry-Smash Muffins (Strawberry Muffins)
made 9 muffins
2/3 cups fresh strawberries
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup vegetable oil (used Canola)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Heat oven to 425 F.
Put a paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups, or grease just the bottoms of 12 muffin cups.
Slightly smash strawberries in large bowl, using fork.
Stir in sugar, oil and eggs until mixed.
Stir in other ingredients just until moistened.
Spoon batter into muffin cups.
Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until light golden brown or toothpick poked in center comes out clean.
Cool 5 minutes.
Loosen sides of muffins from pan if needed, and take them out of the pan.
Makes 12 muffins (I made 9 big muffins).
Tip: If you do not have fresh strawberries, you can use frozen strawberries that you have thawed and drained.
