Summer is here! Ok maybe not officially for another month or so, but it was 80s and humid today so I think that counts. I took Hugo downtown to the West Village and he they had the sprinklers on which to him, is probably the most exciting thing on the planet. Seriously- I don’t think I have ever ever loved anything as much as that child loves running through a sprinkler. It’s really pretty awesome to watch- everyone was laughing and just in awe of his joyful shrieks!
Anyway- I may not love baking with summer fruits as much as Hugo loves sprinklers, but it’s pretty darn close. Fresh and juicy strawberries seem to be popping up all over and I just love baking them into a variety of treats. I realized that it has been ages since I’ve posted a muffin recipe so I figured it was time to change that with these fruity beauties.
hese soft and tender muffins are full of juicy berries with a creamy filling that just takes them over the top. They have a crisp, sugared top and the filling just adds a little extra bit of richness to this already wonderful recipe. By no means is the filling needed, I tried them both ways and I really had a hard time choosing. Andy loved the filled ones, but I may make them again soon and just let the flavors shine. I think these would be the perfect addition to a gorgeous brunch spread don’t you?
Hooray for summer, more recipes with our favorite seasonal fruits, and babies running through sprinklers…(I’m gonna have to post a video of that to Instagram soon!)
