There's just something about fresh fruits and especially strawberries - they're just so perfect for baking - not only do they impart that pretty reddish-pinkish hue to any bread, cake or muffin - they also lend it the yummiest and freshest flavor, too! Each bite into these Strawberry muffins truly bring such pure delight! No wonder these have become a family favorite. The bonus, it's super-easy to make and you're rewarded with so much deliciousness!
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar (you can use either white or brown or a mix of the two - I used half of each)
Preheat oven to 400F/200C. Line your muffin pan with paper cups.
In a large mixing bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together. Set aside.
In another bowl whisk the eggs together until combined. Add the rest of the wet ingredients (yogurt, oil and vanilla) and mix together.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry. Mix the ingredients together.The batter would be thick.
Fold in the berries and the chocolate chips.
Divide evenly among 12 muffin cups. I use a large ice cream scooper for this. So handy! A full scoop per cup is about right. There is enough batter (nearly full) for each cup, sufficient to give your muffin a nice dome.
Bake for about 18-20 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and after about 5-8 minutes (when it's cool enough to handle) transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
