If you know me well, you would know that I love baking. Especially simple baking! Those everyday tea time cakes, simple cookies, muffins etc are my favourite ones to bake when I have time in hand. There was a time when I was so much into frosted cakes and cupcakes. But now I have grown over it and relish those cakes only for special celebrations.
My evenings with some muffins and a warm cup of tea are just absolute bliss. Try it if you are a fan of those relaxed evenings too. These perfect strawberry muffins are such a delicious way to start the morning too!

How to store these Strawberry Muffins
Ensure the muffins are packed in an air-tight container. These muffins can be stored at room temperature for 2 days. If you are keeping this over two days, either refrigerate it for immediate consumption or store it in freezer-safe bags in the freezer for consumption within 3 months.
You can add some chocolate chips or walnut along with berries. Strawberries and dark chocolate make a great combination!
These muffins can be made with other berries or a mix of berries too.
Do not over mix the muffin batter. Over mixing results in dense and hard muffins.
You can replace all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour. Depending on the flour you use, you may need to adjust the quantity of liquid. If needed, you can add a bit of extra milk for the batter to come together.
