Tips on Making, Baking, and Resting Strawberry Muffins

Like many muffin recipes, strawberry muffins can be made by blending the dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate large bowls before you combine them together. After that, fold in the berries. Here are some tips on making, baking, and resting gluten free strawberry muffins:

  • Whisk these eggs together and then, put in the milk. Put in the melted butter last because if you are like me, it just came out of the oven and it is hot. You do not like to scramble your eggs.
  • Line the muffin tin with paper liners and spray every liner with a vegetable spray.
  • Taste the strawberries. If the berries are juicy and sweet, fold them into the batter directly. If they are a bit on the sour side, you may add a tablespoon of sugar. Then, give them a swift toss. However, do not let the strawberries sit too long or else they will begin to give up the juices. It will turn the batter a pink color while folding them in.
  • Bake the strawberry muffins until they’re golden and crusty on the outside. Also, check if a cake tester comes out neat.
  • Remove your gluten free muffins and let them rest for some minutes before you remove them from the tin. Serve them warm!
