My family and friends really enjoy fresh muffins. My berry-packed muffin flavor combo of almond extract and cardamon is just divine. And to top it off, the sweet lemon-cinnamon scented streusel is heavenly.—Shirley Riley, Water Valley, Mississippi
When I created these moist muffins one day with our garden-fresh squash, my 3 year-old son kept asking for more. That batch disappeared quickly... and so did the second one! We especially like the topping of brown sugar and cinnamon, which adds a sweet crunch.
Strawberries and rhubarb are a winning combination, and their sweet-tart pairing makes these lovely muffins delightful as part of a meal or as a snack. Remember this recipe when your backyard rhubarb is ready to cut or you see fresh stalks at the store. -Gail Sykora, Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin
We've been making these muffins daily since we opened back in 1987. The recipe is a combination of our favorites from home. We bake at least 30 dozen muffins for the shop every morning.—Anne Maher, Rockland, Maine
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.
THESE delicious muffins were a significant part of the first dinner I had with my wife when we were courting. She's an excellent cook, and that first meal was truly a gourmet's delight.
Now whenever she plans a menu and asks for my suggestions, I make sure these muffins are on it.
