How can I make my muffins light and fluffy?

Double check the expiry date on baking powder before using in this recipe.

Can frozen strawberries be substituted for fresh?

In muffins, frozen strawberries can be substituted by adding them in frozen. Thawing the strawberries can make the muffins mushy.

How do you know when muffins are done baking?

Test the muffins by inserting a toothpick into the centre of the muffins being careful not to hit a strawberry. The toothpick will not have muffin batter on it if the muffins are done.
Alternatively, you can carefully press down on the muffin top and it will spring back up if it’s ready.


  • The secret to making the best muffins is to mix the wet and dry ingredients with as few strokes as possible.
  • Melt the butter before you begin with the rest of the recipe and allow it to cool at room temperature as you prepare the batter.
  • By chopping the strawberries to 1/4-inch size, diced they will not sink to the bottom of the batter. If you like, save one or two strawberries and chop 1/2-inch pieces and press lightly into the batter just before baking.


  • substitute raspberries for the strawberries
  • for a change, try white chocolate chips – they’re delicious with the strawberries as well!
