SMS - Eep! And Strawberry Shortcake Crumb Muffin Recipe

I'm glad that SMS is not very demanding and only requires you to, at a minimum, participate once a month. Unfortunately, this will be my first time not participating for two weeks straight! I know, I'm terrible! I'll be up and running again soon, I promise. I haven't forgotten about you SMS, life is just getting in the way right now! For now, I leave you with a recipe I promised you a long time ago, that a reader just reminded me I never posted (Thanks, Linda!)

Way back when I was entering my muffin recipe into the Mimi's Cafe contest, I promised that I'd post the recipe I came up with in the future. Well, here it is - sorry it took so long, it completely escaped my mind!

Strawberry Shortcake Crumb Muffins

1 3/4 C all purpose flour
1/4 C cornstarch
1/2 C sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 C buttermilk
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 C butter, melted
10 strawberries, washed, dried & sliced

3/4 stick unsalted butter, melted
1/4 C packed light brown sugar
1/4 C granulated white sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 C + 1 tblspn flour (+extra if needed)

1. Grease & flour a standard muffin/cupcake pan. Preheat the oven to 425F.
2. Whisk together flour, cornstarch, sugar, baking powder & salt, & set aside. In another small bowl combine the melted butter, buttermilk, vanilla & beaten egg. Stir in to the flour mixture. Stir just to incorporate, do not overmix - it will be lumpy.
3. Pour into the muffin pan, filling each cup about 2/3 full. Gently insert the strawberry slices into the batter so that they are vertical (they will stand up and down in the batter).
Sprinkle with crumb topping.
4. Bake 15 - 18 minutes, or until the crumb topping is browned, and a toothpick inserted into the muffin comes out clean with only moist crumbs.

1. Whisk together the butter, sugars, cinnamon and salt until smooth.
2. Stir in the flour with a whisk, then stir with a butter knife to create the crumbly texture. Add more flour as needed to create the correct crumb size.
3. Sprinkle on to muffin tops - crumb topping with dry up and crisp in the oven.

I'm on pins and needles...did your muffins make it to the Mimi's menu??? I love, love, love Mimi's muffins, but we don't have one here. :(

Nope, they didn't win! :( I can't remember what the winning muffin was. But it was still fun to experiment and make them!

Hello! I was looking up a strawberry shortcake muffin recipe to make, and I stumbled upon this one! I was skeptical because of the cornstarch and i thought the cinnamon shouldn't go with it! Trust me, it came out amazing! My end results were just like the pictures given! I don't know why but the muffin just tastes like cheese danish, ahhh, plus the strawberries and that crumbly topping... to die for!! Try this recipe! You won't be disappointed! Hint: I only had about 7-8 strawberries, for the batch of 12, and I sprinkled about a Tablespoon or so of sugar on them to release juices, those juices, I mixed with the batter! Next time, I might add some strawberry extract as well! These are to die for, really! This recipe made 12 BIG muffins for me. I made them for my first time yesterday night, and now they are all gone!!! :)

Very good, but mine are a little bland. I might add a little strawberry extract next time. This recipe is a keeper!
