Lemon strawberry muffins are very light and perfect for a morning with refreshing lemon flavor and fresh strawberries. These are eggless too.
These muffins are filled with the fresh flavors of the season. This time of the year, strawberries are available everywhere and have peak flavor. In may places. this month is the time to pick strawberries. I love picking fresh fruits and would love to go for the picking every year. Last year we missed and hence compensated this year. I used the fresh strawberries that we picked.
The recipe is not complex. Just mix everything and bake. They can be made in about 45 minutes from beginning to end. The sweetness is just right for us. If you have a sweet tooth add a couple more tablespoons of brown sugar. Regular sugar can also be used. These muffins have fresh fruit and hence advisable to store in refrigerated as they are moist.
I am sharing this for this month's #MuffinMonday. #MuffinMonday is a group of muffin loving bakers who get together once a month to bake muffins. You can see all of our lovely muffins by following our Pinterest board. Updated links for all of our past events and more information about Muffin Monday can be found on our home page.
