Strawberry Streusel Muffins

These muffins are really simple and fast to whip up on a weekend morning. And, they're sure to fill your house with a smell that will draw the heaviest sleepers from their beds :). This recipe calls for fresh or frozen strawberries, but of course, fresh are better. I mean, just look at these beauties:

Anyway. To turn those into this:
You will need...
For the muffins:
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 c white sugar
1/4 c brown sugar
1 3/4 c all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 c chopped strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1/4 c canola oil
1/2 c milk
1 egg
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

For the streusel:
1/4 c sugar
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of table salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Oil an 8 cup muffin pan or use paper liners.

For the muffins:

In a small bowl, combine the oil, milk, vanilla and egg. Beat lightly.

 In a large bowl, mix flour, salt, cinnamon, baking powder and sugar. Toss in chopped strawberries and stir to coat with flour. Pour in milk mixture and stir together.

Fill muffin cups.

For the streusel:

In a separate bowl, combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, and butter. Mash butter into dry ingredients with a fork or your fingertips.

Sprinkle mixture on top of filled muffin cups.

Bake at 375 for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Allow to cool in pan on a drying rack for 10 minutes (if you can wait!).
