How to Serve Homemade Muffins
I’m a big fan of eating muffins warm straight from the oven! Otherwise, I always pop them in the microwave for 30-60 seconds to warm them before enjoying them. Sometimes I’ll add butter, cream cheese, or even peanut butter to my muffins. In the case of these strawberry muffins, I think the berries keep them moist and flavorful enough to enjoy without anything added.
Tips for Making the Best Homemade Strawberry Muffins
Choose Ripe Strawberries. Selecting ripe, sweet strawberries is crucial for the success of your muffins. Look for berries that are firm, bright red, and have a sweet aroma. Dice them into small, uniform pieces to ensure an even flavor distribution.
Measure properly. When using a measuring cup to measure the flour be sure to fill the measuring cup and then use a knife to flatten it and remove the excess.
Avoid Overmixing. When combining the wet and dry ingredients, be mindful not to overmix the batter. Overmixing can lead to dense muffins. Gently fold in the strawberries at the end to prevent them from getting mashed up.

Room temperature ingredients. Having room temperature milk, butter, and eggs when making muffins is going to give you perfectly fluffy muffins every time. It is important to have room temperature eggs, so be sure to pull the eggs out to warm up from the fridge for at least 30 minutes before making the muffin batter.
Use Muffin tin liners. I love using silicone muffin cups because they bake nicely and then we can reuse them, but you can also use paper liners when making muffins and they will work too.
Variations of this recipe
Add Chocolate chips. Make chocolate strawberry muffins by adding 1/2 a cup of chocolate chips to the muffin batter.
Add a Struesel topping. Before baking make a streusel topping and place on top of the muffins.
Add a glaze topping. In a small bowl mix 1 cup powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons milk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and drizzle on top of the muffins after removing them from the oven.
Ground cinnamon. Add a teaspoon of ground cinnamon to the muffin batter for an extra boost of flavor.
Turbinado sugar. Add a sprinkle of turbinado sugar on top of the muffin batter before putting the muffins into the oven.
How to store Strawberry Muffins
Before storing the muffins make sure they are completely cooled. Allow the muffins to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Once the muffins are cooled store the cooled muffins in an air tight container.
How long do muffins keep fresh?
These strawberry muffins will stay fresh for 2-3 days in an airtight container stored at room temperature. If you need to store the muffins for a longer period, you can refrigerate them. Place them in an airtight container or sealable plastic bag. This helps maintain their moisture and freshness. They will keep in the fridge for 3-4 days.
Can I Freeze Homemade Muffins?
I like to make multiple batches of muffins and freeze them so we have them for quick and easy breakfasts. These Strawberry Muffins are perfect for freezing. Allow them to cool completely, then place the muffins in freezer bags in a single layer. Lay the bag flat in the freezer to store muffins. They’ll last for up to 6 months frozen. To enjoy later, pop your frozen muffin in the microwave for 30-45 seconds and you’re good to go!
