🥫 Storage instructions

Leftover muffins will be fresh for a day or so at room temperature. After that, it’s best if you freeze them.

Let the muffins cool completely before storing them. Put them in a freezer-safe container or ziplock bag and seal them tightly. Store in the freezer for up to two months.

To reheat, either let thaw at room temperature or microwave briefly until heated through. Enjoy!

🔍 FAQs

Can I use another fruit?

Sure! Blueberries are good too.

Can I use melted butter instead of oil?

Yes, that works too! You can even use a combination of the two if you’d like. Just make sure to mix it in with the wet ingredients before adding the dry ones.

Do I need all the sugar?

They are quite sweet, so you could reduce it a tad if you’d like.

👩🏻‍🍳 Expert tips

  • Don’t skip the flour and the strawberries. This helps prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the muffins while baking.
  • Make sure not to overmix the batter. If you do, your muffins will be dense with a rubbery texture.
  • If you don’t have sparkling sugar, feel free to use regular granulated sugar on top of the muffins for a nice crunch. Enjoy!
