In honor of Spring I’m offering you a darling Strawberry Poppy Seed Muffin recipe. When I think of Spring strawberries aren’t far behind. The first jewels of the season always seem to be the best: super sweet and juicy, with the deepest shades of red and minus imperfections. Maybe it’s the anticipation…but for whatever reason by time June rolls around they don’t taste or look the same to me.
These are simple, sweet and scrumptious with a medley of strawberry puree and poppy seeds swirled throughout. Sour cream in the batter gives them a soft and tender crumb. I love how the poppy seeds show through the glaze to speckle the tops with black and pink dots. They are one of the quickest, easiest muffins I have ever made, well worth the little bit of effort they take. And they have one of the most delicious scents. The smell alone will drive your taste buds mad.
And I’m also taking your Side Dishes for the April Showdown!
