Strawberry crumble muffins

Light and soft muffins with strawberries and cinnamon crumble- a summer must-bake for all strawberry lovers!


For the muffins:

  • 250g plain flour
  • 1tbsp baking powder
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 75g cold unsalted butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 1tsp vanilla paste
  • 1 egg
  • 175ml milk
  • 250g strawberries, roughly chopped
For the crumble:
  • 30g cold unsalted butter
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 50g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

To make the muffins combine the flour, sugar and baking powder in a large bowl. Chop the butter into small cubes and add to the flour mixture, rub with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Add a pinch of salt, vanilla paste, egg and milk and mix quickly until just combined.  The mixture can be lumpy but don't over mix it.

Wash and chop the strawberries and add most of them to the batter, keeping a handful aside for sprinkling on top.

Quickly mix, then divide the mixture into 12 muffin cases and sprinkle remaining strawberries on top.

To make the crumble combine all ingredients in a small bowl and rub with your fingertips.  Sprinkle on top of the muffins.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at  200C for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown and baked through.  A skewer inserted in the middle should come out clean when the muffins are ready.
