Strawberry Buttermilk Muffins

This recipe can be found all over the internet, so I don't know who to give credit to. I had strawberry buttermilk muffins at Sweet Tomatoes earlier in the month and thought they were delicious. So Caralie and I made these today. They bake up nice and big - very pretty. There is an optional streusel topping as well if you want to make them really special.

STRAWBERRY BUTTERMILK MUFFINS

2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 egg
3/4 cup buttermilk
2/3 cup canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups chopped fresh or frozen strawberries

Streusel topping:
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease or line muffin tin.

In a medium bowl, whisk together egg, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla.

In another bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gently fold berries into dry mixture. Now fold in wet ingredients, just until combined.

Fill each cup to the top. (Optional: in a small bowl, combine streusel ingredients. Sprinkle liberally over muffins.)

Bake 20 - 22 minutes.

Makes 1 dozen muffins.
