Strawberry Muffins

5 stars based on 80 votes

Packed with sweet strawberries, these tender muffins with crisp, golden tops are perfect for a special breakfast or brunch. They’re a nice change from blueberry muffins, and just as delicious. The secret is adding a lot of berries to the batter — which gives the muffins an intense strawberry flavor and keeps them very moist — along with a touch of almond extract to complement the fruit.

I made several batches of these muffins and experimented with different flavors — such as lemon, cinnamon and nutmeg  — but my family liked the plain version best. That said, feel free to play with the recipe and add a teaspoon of lemon zest or hint of spice (1/2 teaspoon cinnamon plus 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg), if you like.

Strawberry Muffins

Servings: 12
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 30 Minutes
Total Time: 50 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup and leveled-off with knife, plus 2 teaspoons more for tossing with strawberries
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick or 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2-1/4 cups diced strawberries, from 1 pint, divided
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar, for topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners; spray the liners and the pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and granulated sugar for about 2 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl and beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract and almond extract. (The batter may look a little grainy -- that's okay).
  4. With the mixer on low, add the flour mixture in three separate additions, alternating with the milk and ending with the flour.
  5. Toss the strawberries with 2 teaspoons of flour (this will keep them from sinking to the bottom). Set 1/2 cup of the berries aside. Add the remaining berries to the batter and fold with a spatula until evenly distributed. Do not overmix.
  6. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tin (an ice-cream scoop with a wire scraper works well here); they will be very full. Scatter the reserved berries evenly over the muffins, then sprinkle the turbinado sugar over the center of each muffin (keeping the sugar away from the edges will prevent sticking).
  7. Bake for about 30 minutes, until lightly golden and a cake tester comes out clean. Run a sharp knife around the top edge of each muffin to free it from the pan if necessary (the edges can stick), then let the muffins cool in the pan for about 25 minutes. Transfer the muffins to a rack to cool completely.

    These are the best muffins I’ve ever made! Will definitely make this again and again.
    The only thing I changed was to only add 3/4 cup of sugar (I don’t like my muffins to be too sweet)
    The taste was awesome as well as the texture. Next time I’ll add paper cups when baking them as the texture was soft and clinged to the tray. Thanks for this recipe !

  • DELICIOUS! I don’t like changing a recipe and then reviewing it but these were so good I had to post something. Due to my son’s egg allergy I literally couldn’t make “as is”. So, for one egg I subbed 1/4 cup applesauce and for the other egg I subbed 1/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (Oikos Triple Zero Vanilla). Other than that followed other measurements and instructions to a “T”. They turned delicious!!!!

    These are perfectly moist, and unlike some muffin recipes I try, turn out exactly like the picture and in a perfect quantity. Kids loved them, as did the adults. thank you!

    Another excellent recipe. I made this and your key lime pie ice cream recipe the same day. My strawberries were pretty juicy and I put the flour on them perhaps a little too early as the muffins were a bit wet after cooling off. They tested “clean” with toothpick. The taste was very good. Next time I’ll wait to add the flour right before I add the strawberries to the batter and see if that helps.

    Excellent recipe. I have tried several strawberry muffin recipes in the past and was always disappointed. I get my berries at local Amish farms and they are particularly juicy (and delicious). But their juiciness usually ruins muffins. So I cut the milk down to only 1/4 cup and the muffins came out perfect. This is sure to become a seasonal favorite.

    We went strawberry picking yesterday, made the muffins last night, and they were gone by this morning. Sooooo delicious! They were light, moist, and the strawberry taste shone through. I only used half the turbinado sugar at the end because 2 tbsp seemed like a lot but wish I’d used the full amount – the sweet crunch of the muffin top was the “icing on the cake.” Luckily we picked enough berries to make another batch today!

    This is one of the best recipes I’ve found online. The muffins were super moist and flavorful, they reminded me of strawberry pancakes. I didn’t have sugar for the tops but in all honesty it was delicious without. Otherwise I made the recipe as written and will make them again.

  • I’ve just recently come across your site. For Easter I made the grilled asparagus and feta salad. We loved it! At least speaking for the asparagus lovers among us.
    Tonight I’ve made the strawberry muffins. Exactly as your recipe states….however I am wondering if your idea of a 12 cup muffin tin is actually what I would call a jumbo muffin tin, because I actually have 18 muffins (I would call these also cupcake tins.) in my oven and…I hope I don’t have an overflow situation as they are very full even for 18 and not 12.

    - Patti Wallace on May 7, 2017 Reply
    • Glad you liked the asparagus salad! For the muffins, I do use a standard muffin pan, not a jumbo pan. A few other readers have commented that they’ve gotten more than 12 muffins from the batter, but that hasn’t been my experience. I hope they turned out okay!

      They turned out great! I may not have quite understood your direction on the amount of strawberries. I had a qt. of strawberries with a few missing. I’m thinking I may have had more strawberries in my batter once I cut them up, hence more muffins. I would advise NOT giving these to “non-experienced” eaters lol!. My muffins were very light and rather tender and my grandsons made a horrible mess eating these…crumbs everywhere😳. But they loved them! Will be making them again.

    Strawberries were on sale at the grocery store so I decided to try these muffins. They came out looking exactly like your picture, the taste was delicious. The strawberry flavor shined through, so tender and flavorful. The tip about tossing the strawberries with flour first was so helpful, they did not sink to the bottom of the muffins. Thank you for this special recipe.

    - Paula on April 25, 2017 Reply
    • Sure Paula, you could get away with making them two days ahead. I would cover them loosely with foil. (You don’t want them wrapped too tightly; the muffins are so moist that they may get a bit soggy if you do.)

    My husband thought these were amazing and I agree but wished the strawberries would have been sweeter (not the recipes fault, just the berries). They were very delicate and we loved that. But when Jenn says to use cupcake liners, do it! I only had a few & those turned out perfect. The ones without liners were difficult to get out of the pan and fell apart. Will try again using the liners & more ripe strawberries!

    Oh My! So good. We are trying to use up our leftover frozen strawberries before the freshies arrive. This was a big hit. We did not have baking powder so used the tartar/soda sub, & used brown sugar for topping which was fine but I’m sure the other would have been better. Nonetheless, this is a KEEPER.

    I made these today last minute because I had strawberries I needed to use or lose. I was a little worried because I only had salted butter and had to substitute a mixture of cream of tartar/baking soda for the baking powder. I did not have almond extract so I just added a dash more vanilla. They turned out great and I can only imagine how awesome they would be with the almond extract. They got 2 thumbs up from my 21 month-old little helper.

    I made this last night with my 6 year old daughter. Half way through mixing I realized I was out of muffin cup liners so we used 2 loaf pans instead. It turned out great.

  • Hi! I am making these muffins as we speak. They are in the oven now, and they are rising and spreading so much that they are all conjoining together. What did I do wrong?

    - Ashley on February 12, 2016 Reply
    • Hi Ashley, Unfortunately, I’m not sure why that would happen, but once they’ve cooled, you can gently separate them. Was the texture and taste okay?

        While using up our groceries after a 2month in a condo, I wanted something sweet. I had all the ingredients when I ran across this recipe. Took it our last group outing. EVERYONE OF US ABSOLUTELY LOVED THEM. This is definitely a keeper.

    Another delicious recipe by Jenn! These were delicious, I almost didn’t use the almond extract because I didn’t have any, so I bought it just to use in this receipe. I am so glad I did, I loved the taste of the almond with the strawberrys. I just added some chocolate chips to the mix. I will be making these over and over again.

  • Hi I will be at work on the 23rd and i want to bring these to work on Dec 24th as well, will it be okay if i made the batter in advance? how should i store it? or is it better i make it the same day? thanks

    - Reese on December 18, 2015 Reply
    • While I think you could refrigerate the batter, you could also make the muffins a day in advance. Hope everyone enjoys them!

  • would strawberry muffins work if made into cupcakes with strawberry frosting?

    - jess on December 7, 2015 Reply
    • Sure Jess, that would work. They will obviously have more of a muffin texture than a cupcake one, but they should be delicious.

  • Hi Jen

    Is that cooling time right? 25 minutes in muffin pan.

    - Jackie on June 30, 2015 Reply
    • Hi Jackie, Yes, it’s correct. The strawberries release a lot of moisture so the muffins need a little extra time to set up, otherwise they’ll fall apart when you take them out of the pan.

      - Jenn on July 1, 2015 Reply
  • These were delicious! I cut the sugar back just a little. I ended up with too much batter to fit in 12 regular sized muffin cups, so I made a few extra. Thank you!

    I had to try these after I made your blueberry muffins, which were so tasty. These did NOT disappoint. So moist & full of flavor. As with the blueberry muffin recipe, I followed the recipe exactly. However, I checked these around 25 minutes and mine were perfectly browned. I’m sure my oven runs hot though. Thank you for another fantastic recipe!

    I was looking for a good strawberry muffing and have just recently found your website, but had yet to try any recipes until I made these. They are so very good with a real strawberry taste. My husband and I were going out of town, so I froze them. They were even better it seemed when pulled from the freezer. So moist with those wonderful moist bites of strawberry. Next time I think I will add a little orange zest to the batter. Thanks so much for the great recipe. Really enjoy your website.

    Another FANTASTIC recipe! I’ve never made muffins with strawberries before, but I had to try this one because it looked just too beautiful. And I’m so glad I made them! It was not just pretty, but also so delicious! Now I wonder why not more people make muffins with strawberries. It is just as good as standard blueberry muffins, but just different. And this recipe is a winner! Great texture, balanced flavor and aroma including sweet crunch top that was made from sprinkling the raw sugar. Simply irresistible! Now I think I have to make Jen’s blueberry muffin recipe as well, since that is the original version of this amazing recipe. Thank you for another great recipe!

    Tried these muffins in my brand new Wolf Gas Oven and they came out beautifully. They were moist and yet had a lovely crusty top. My husband loved them and my girlfriends raved when I gifted them each a few. (I doubled the batch since strawberries are in season here in Michigan) I know I’ll make these time and again. This recipe is a keeper!!
