These incredibly tender and moist muffins are bursting with honey-roasted strawberries! Plus, these fluffy and buttery muffins are all made in one bowl (minus the roasting of the strawberries).
Why this recipe works:
Roasted strawberries really make these the perfect strawberry muffins! The roasting process concentrates all that wonderful strawberry flavor and helps to remove excess water that would render the muffins too stodgy.
Butter: besides the roasted strawberries, this recipe is delicious because it uses premium European-style high-fat butter. I used Plugrá premium butter which is 82% fat vs. the 80% fat found in most American butter. This really makes a difference, and trust me when I say using premium high-fat butter will totally transform your baking! It not only gives your baked goods a better flavor but also makes the texture incredible as well.
Strawberries: roasting strawberries intensifies and concentrates their flavor. It also helps to remove some of the water in the berries. Strawberries are one of the fruits that contain the most water. When baked or cooked, that water comes out and can make your cakes and muffins too moist and gummy. Not here; these muffins are the perfect level of moistness.
Honey: honey adds a deeper and more earthy flavor than sugar. Adding honey instead of sugar to the strawberries provides depth as well as sweetness to the strawberries.
Almond flour: this recipe uses almond flour and all-purpose flour. The almond flour adds moisture and a slight almond flavor to the muffins, which is key to getting the perfect muffin texture and flavor.
How to make this recipe:
Time needed: 45 minutes.
- Start by roasting the strawberries with honey and 1/4 tsp vanilla.
- Next, whisk all the dry ingredients, including the sugar together.
- Melt and mix in the butter.
- Followed by the eggs, milk, and vanilla.
- Next, fold in the roasted strawberries.
- Fill a lined muffin tin with batter and bake!
Tips and tricks for this recipe:
- Use a parchment-lined baking tray for roasting your strawberries. As they bake, the strawberries will leak quite a bit of liquid, and a lined tray will ensure an easy clean-up.
- Thoroughly whisk your dry ingredients. Almond flour can be clumpy, and a good whisk will make sure your batter is nice and evenly textured.
- Melt your butter in the microwave by heating it in 15-second increments until it’s fully melted.
- Fold your roasted strawberries into your batter. Folding helps the strawberries to stay intact and helps to distribute them in the batter evenly.
Yes, but I would increase their roasting time to 45 minutes – 1 hour.
These muffins will keep for up to 3 days in an air-tight container.
