Strawberry Muffins

These are probably my favorite muffins so far. I had 4 in one sitting and probably could have polished all dozen of them off, but was nice enough to let my kids have some and save a few for Derek when he got home from work. Recipe from Martha Stewart.

Strawberry Muffins

10 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 vanilla bean, split and scraped (I just used 1 tsp. vanilla extract)
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup milk, room temperature
1 large egg, room temperature
1 1/4 cups chopped strawberries (you can substitute any fruit you like)

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a standard muffin tin or use baking cups. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in large bowl; whisk to combine.
2. In medium bowl, combine butter, vanilla bean scrapings, sugar, milk, and egg; whisk to combine. Fold butter mixture and fruit into flour mixture until incorporated.
3. Spoon 1/4 cup batter into each prepared cup. Bake until tops are golden, 15 to 17 minutes. Remove from oven; let cool in pan 15 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Dust with powdered sugar.
