Strawberry Muffins

Servings: 12 muffins
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1-1/2 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup melted butter
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped
Granulated sugar, for topping (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 C). Spray muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray or line muffin cups with paper cupcake liners.
In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and stir until well blended.

In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, butter, eggs and vanilla. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour liquid mixture in and the strawberries. Using a large spoon, gently fold ingredients until just moist. Spoon the batter evenly into 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle each muffin with about 1/2 teaspoon sugar, if desired. Bake 20 to 25 minutes.

Makes 12 muffins.
