Hello readers of WhipperBerry! I'm Michael from Inspired by Charm. I am so excited to be posting here today. I've been a fan of Heather's for quite some time and was honored when she invited me to guest post. Over at Inspired by Charm, I share a colorful mix of DIY projects, home decor ideas, gardening, quilting and baking! Today I wanted to teach you how to make one of my latest baking creations: Strawberry Lemon Yogurt Muffins. With spring and summer quickly approaching, I needed a quick and easy muffin recipes that was moist and jam packed with flavor. After combining a couple of previously great recipes, I invented this winner that is sure to please.

Ready to get baking? Lets go! Here's what you'll need to make 12 muffins: 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus 2 tablespoons 1/3 cup light-brown sugar 1/3 cup sugar 2 teaspoons baking power 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup butter – melted and cooled 2/3 cup milk 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt 2 eggs – beaten 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 teaspoons lemon zest 2 cups strawberries – diced Lemon Glaze: 1 cup powdered sugar 1-2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Add paper liners to twelve muffin tins.

Begin by mixing your dry ingredients. In a large bowl, stir together 2 cups flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Next, mix your wet ingredients. In a medium bowl, stir together butter, milk, yogurt, eggs, vanilla and lemon zest.

Then, add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients, stir until just combined.

Mix the remaining two tablespoons of flour with your diced strawberries. This will prevent the strawberries from sinking to the bottom of your muffins.

Gently fold the flour coated strawberries into your mix.

Using a scoop, completely fill your muffin liners with batter.

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffins comes out clean. Place muffin tin on wire rack to cool for five minutes. Then, remove muffins from the tin to finish cooling.

As your muffins cool, prepare your lemon glaze. Add powered sugar to a bowl, then add one tablespoon of lemon juice to your powered sugar and stir until combined. Continue to add the second tablespoon of lemon juice until you receive the constancy desired. Drizzle unto the top of your cooled muffins.

And you're finished! I placed my muffins into a decorative liner and topped them with a slice of strawberry and lemon. It's a little teaser for what's inside.

The result is a light, fruity, and moist muffin perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a late night snack!

    I stumbled across Michael’s blog just recently Heather and saw the artwork makeover. What a fantastic idea. I was actually in my local thrift store today looking at a vintage artwork piece wondering if I could do the same. That’s the effect he had on me, all the way over here in Australia. His photos are amazing and what gorgeous little muffins. I can wait to try them. Thanks for having him today. It’s prompted me to follow him. I don’t want to lose track of this one! LOL

    i made these muffins and was so excited about them but they never, ever set! i live in a country where strawberries are VERY expensive so i am sooooo disappointed that i wasted so much money and time and effort on a muffin that didn't even turn out. i didn't matter how long i left them in the oven (i tried a lower temp) they still never got done. i bake all the time and never have this problem. has anyone else noticed that there are too many wet ingredients? the batter was so runny! i guess that was the problem. i am not seeing anyone else comment who actually made them. am i the ony one? soooo bummed. 

  14. Nbake says

    Wow, these are delicious!!!  I made them fairly healthy and they are still one of the best muffins I've ever tasted, and I'm not even the best baker.  I used 100% whole weat flour, peach greek yogurt, unsweetened applesauce in place of butter and tossed the strawberries with flaxseed instead of extra flour.  I did skip the glaze, but they are so moist and fruity alone that it doesn't even matter!
