Strawberry Buttermilk Muffins
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup cooking oil
¾ cup buttermilk
2 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
Preheat oven to 350F. Spray muffin pans lightly with cooking spray. Set aside.
Combine all the ingredients except for the strawberries and mix together with a wooden spoon until well combined. Gently stir in the berries.
Place the batter in ¼ cup measures into the prepared pans. Bake 35 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool 10 to 15 minutes before removing from pan.
I would recommend using fresh strawberries for this recipe, although thawed and drained frozen berries would work in a pinch.
These could easily be made for a halloween treat. Maybe shark bite muffins? I am under not illusion that they are pretty.
