Beth's Best Muffins
What You Need
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup + 2 tablespoons milk
1/4 lb butter, melted (1 stick)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon orange zest
1 cup diced fresh strawberries (or any fruit you want)
3/4 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place muffin tins in muffin pan.
In a strainer or sifter, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together into a large bowl. Stir with a spoon to make sure everything is well mixed.
In a measuring cup, whisk milk, egg, melted butter, vanilla, and orange zest together.
Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients. Pour the liquid mixture into the well. Stir together with a spatula just until combined (it’s ok if some lumps remain).
Add strawberries (or other fruit) and sugar to the batter. Gently stir/fold all the ingredients together.
Using an ice cream scoop, spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tins. Fill each about 3/4 of the way.
Bake for 20-25 minutes. The tops should be nicely browned and a toothpick should come out clean.
Total Prep Time: 15-20 minutes
