Things to Make - Strawberry & Cream Muffins


Lately the kids have been more interested in cooking than in craft projects, so the other day we made strawberry & cream muffins, which turned out quite yummy. At least we thought so.

The recipe is from the book 1 Mix 100 Muffins (1 = 100!), which has a LOT of great ideas and combinations.

INGREDIENTS (for 12 muffins):
*1 cup chopped strawberries (fresh or frozen)
*2 cups all purpose flour
*1 tbsp baking powder
*1/8 tsp salt
*1/2 cup sugar
*2 eggs
*1 cup light cream
*6 tbsp melted butter
*1 tsp vanilla extract
*1/2 cup heavy cream

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line 12 count muffin pan with liners.
2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in sugar and chopped strawberries.
3. Beat the eggs, then add in the light cream, butter, and vanilla extract. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in beaten ingredients. Stir until combined, don't overmix.
4. Spoon into muffin pan. Bake approximately 20 minutes, until well risen and golden brown.
5. While muffins cool, whip heavy cream until stiff. Once muffins are cold, top each one with a dollop of cream. Chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.
