strawberry muffins


Strawberries are cheap and plentiful in the shops right now so it's an ideal time to incorporate fresh strawberries in your cooking. But baking with strawberries can be difficult - they tend to release their water content and shrink in the oven and leave behind ugly holes.

Until recently I'd given up on adding strawberries to muffins in preference for other more stable fruits. But since discovering the secret to perfect strawberry muffins was to puree the strawberries, this strawberry muffin recipe is now one of my favourite muffin recipes.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 12

Ingredients
1 cup fresh strawberries
2/3 cup castor sugar
1/3 cup olive oil
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Method
Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees celsius (fan-forced)
Line a muffin tin with 12 muffin cases
Cut off the leaves and stalks of the strawberries and puree them in a bowl with a potato masher
