I made these moist muffins to take to the office, and they were a hit. Sugared almonds give them a crunchy topping. When strawberries aren't in season, I use individual frozen cut strawberries directly from the freezer.

"The topping is great. I found it easiest to bake on parchment paper lined pan. That way they don't stick and make a mess."
