Strawberry Muffins

During the weekend, we had a planned family potluck because one of my cousins came back from Toronto, ON for a short visit. I made chocolate dipped strawberries. The chocolate melted during the car ride to my aunt's house. Horrible! I forgot about the "somewhat" long commute from where I live. And then the last minute, I was thinking I should've brought plain strawberries instead (or did some baking out of it).

Since I didn't want to waste the strawberries, I made strawberry muffins from the leftovers that night. It's the first time I've ever made strawberry muffins (and a long time since I've done some baking). I had some for breakfast this morning and it wasn't too bad. It was nice and moist and sweet. It's not perfect, but I'll try making this again when I get a chance.

1-2/3 cups fresh strawberries
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup vegetable oil

1) Preheat oven to 425F
2) Prepare 12 baking cups into muffin tray
3) Chop strawberries and slightly mash in bowl
4) Mix dry ingredients together: flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, cinnamon
5) Beat the eggs and mix with the oil and add in strawberries
6) Add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix together
7) Spoon the batter into the muffin cups
8) Bake about 20 minutes
