The first reaction I got was as expected, Ma……… and a sour face. But as the idea gradually sank in I was asked,” Ma when are you baking those muffins? “So now that the green signal was waved there was no stopping to making these muffins.
I had already decided to halve the given recipe and I got 6 ½ muffins, 6 huge ones and one small oneJ!!
The only hassle was that we have no fresh strawberries in the market they will start coming somewhere in October or November so I substituted
1 cup Fresh strawberries with ½ cup of strawberry crush
½ cup unsalted butter with ¼ cup salted butter (no salt)
¾ cup light brown sugar with ½ and 1/8 cup ordinary sugar
I had no means of grinding cinnamon hence I did not use it
The muffins were yummy, soft fluffy and colourful but too sweet. Next time I will reduce the sugar ½ a cup.
I will like to thank Sweet Punch for introducing me to a new taste that I had heard of but never tried.
