I make breakfast 2 times a day on weekdays & once a day on weekends. I get up at 5:30am to make my husband some before he has to go in to work, and again a few hours later for my children & myself. Sometimes I don't feel like cooking a hot breakfast twice a day so, muffins have surely become a huge staple in our house, and I am always trying to come up with new & different ones.
With strawberries being so plentiful right now, I decided I wanted to come up with a strawberry one. But, not just your standard blueberry muffin recipe with strawberries replacing the blueberries. I wanted something more unique than that.
