Strawberry shortcake muffins. THE perfect summertime muffin. Pockets of juicy fresh strawberries, in a buttery, shortcake style muffin. And only 7 easy ingredients. Sounds delicious, right?
Let me start by saying, I love shortcake. A lot. I love its “biscuity”, buttery texture, that it’s not too sweet–just sweet enough–and how when paired with freshly picked summertime strawberries, and real (stress the real) whipping cream, no other dessert comes close.
So now that everyone’s up to speed on my fondness for shortcake, let’s talk about these strawberry shortcake muffins. Essentially, it’s the best dessert, but in muffin form. I tweaked my mum’s original shortcake recipe and folded in chopped strawberries, and topped them with a sprinkle of sugar. YUM. And my kitchen smelled a-mazing.
This recipe makes 12-14 muffins depending on the size of your scoops, and trust me, they will not be around for long. My kids polished them off in two days flat.
