I absolutely love baking with berries (you must try my blueberry banana bread) and often have leftover strawberries during the spring and summer. These mini-muffins are the perfect way to use them up!

Strawberry Muffin Batter

Ingredients You’ll Need for Strawberry Muffins

The ingredients are all pretty simple. The batter is perfect for all sorts of mix-ins.

The strawberry flavor comes from a double-whammy of both strawberry jam and freshly diced strawberry pieces baked right inside the batter. The result is a light and moist muffin full of strawberry flavor!

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 cups flour all-purpose
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup strawberry jam
  • 2 cups strawberries, finely diced
  • ½ cup sour cream
Strawberry Muffins

Tips for this recipe:

Loosely coat your diced strawberry bits with flour to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the muffins when baking.

You can swap in your favorite berries, try with raspberries too!

Make these strawberry muffins in a standard muffin size, it will make around 20 muffins. You’ll just need to increase baking time to about 25 minutes, but watch carefully and muffins are done when golden on top and a skewer or knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Be sure not to over-bake these muffins.
