This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TruMoo. All opinions are 100% mine. I find summer to be the time when I can get the juiciest, best tasting strawberries. Sometimes I get a little over excited at the grocery store or farmer’s market, and I buy way more strawberries than I need. I end up freezing some and using the rest in family friendly recipes. Recently, my strawberry abundance inspired me to make this Strawberry Muffin Recipe. The muffins have a wonderful strawberry flavor thanks to the mashed strawberries and TruMoo Strawberry Milk I used (see TruMoo for more information). To me strawberries and whipped cream just go together, so I whipped up (pun intended) a yummy topping for these strawberry muffins.

- 1 cup of sliced strawberries
- 1 1/2 cups of flour
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup TruMoo Strawberry Milk
- 1 cup sugar + 1 teaspoon
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1 cup of heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
- 12 whole strawberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove the tops and slice up the strawberries.
Mash the strawberries with a fork. You don’t want them completely pureed, so leave a few chunks in there. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar to the mashed strawberries and mix. Set aside.
Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.
Using a mixer, cream butter until it starts to get fluffy. Gradually add 1 cup of sugar and continue mixing on low speed. Add both eggs and vanilla and continue mixing on low speed until the mixture is thoroughly combined.
Add 1/2 cup of TruMoo Strawberry Milk to the butter/sugar/egg mixture.
Add the flour mixture and the mashed strawberries to the wet mixture. Do this gradually, adding a little flour and some strawberries, then mixing. Repeat this process until the flour and strawberries have all been added. Mix on low until a batter forms.
Fill a cupcake pan with liners and divide the batter equally between the 12 liners. Fill each liner almost up to the top.
Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean. Remove muffins from pan and let cool.
Now it’s time to make the whipped topping! In a large bowl or stand mixer, combine heavy cream, sugar and vanilla. Mix on high speed until whipped cream forms.
Using a small spatula, top each muffin with whipped cream. Cut the tops off of 12 strawberries and slice from the top thinnest part to close to the bottom. Fan out the strawberry and add on top of the whipped cream.
