Muffins have always been a favorite breakfast food for my family. My children have now "left the nest", but I still find myself mixing a batch of these muffins using strawberries from my garden.

"loved the ease in preparation. I used plain greek breakfast yoghurt as I didn't have sour cream and still worked out beautifully. Added a few extra strawberries, probably an extra 1/2 cup and tasted good. Will definitely cook these again"

"Also followed directions exactly, would not make again, pretty tasteless."

"I agree with the other review of adding strawberry extract to the batter next time. The strawberry flavor is concentrated where the strawberries are and they don't lend themselves as much to their flavor bleeding into the rest of the muffin like fake strawberry pieces do. Might also make this using other fruits, using this recipe as a base and just changing out the fruit/extracts."
