Based on an allrecipe.com recipe, I added some cinnamon and vanilla to kick up the taste of the muffin. Then sprinkle with a little cinnamon sugar and you have a taste treat. Not much work to surprise the family.

RS-4A nice solid 4 but not as much strawberry pop as I was hoping for. A 4 from my wife also.

Notes: the original recipe would have been a bit bland. The comments had some suggestions and the most common were adding some cinnamon and vanilla to the muffin. I took it one step further with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar that was really needed.

The strawberries need to be a bit smaller than in my picture. The are moist and will create pockets otherwise.

      I feel they should. The original recipe was reproduced many places and nobody was very specific (all just said chopped). A couple had a few pictures so I did it somewhat like them. But the strawberries have a lot of moisture and I thing produced some steam pockets. Smaller (maybe 1/2 inch max) would be better.

    I just made these. Simple, yet delicious! Your instructions were so easy to follow that I was able to include my 3 year old in the measuring/mixing process. Thank you!
