  • 300 grams plain flour
  • 250 grams caster sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 200 mls milk
  • 75 mls vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 140 grams whole strawberries


  • Preheat the oven to 180 C/350 F/Gas Mark 4. Measure out all your dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Set aside 1 tbsp plain flour for the strawberries later.
  • Put 12 paper cases in your muffin tray.
  • Measure out all the wet ingredients into a measuring jug. I measure the milk in first then add the rest. I use a tbsp measure for the oil. Whisk the wet ingredients together well.
  • Cut the green tops off the strawberries and chop into small chunks about 1 cm square. Put 1 tbsp of plain flour in the bowl with them and mix through until they are all coated in it.
  • Tip the liquid into the mixing ingredients and mix as little as you need to until you can't see any dry bits/flour left. Tip in the strawberries and again mix through as little as possible to distribute them.
  • Divide the batter into the paper cases. Fill them up to roughly 1 cm below the rim pf the paper case. I use a large serving spoon and my clean finger.
  • Top each one with a generous pinch of granulated sugar.
  • Bake for 20/25 mins until golden brown and firm when pressed.
  • After 5 mins left in the muffin tray remove to a wire rack to cool.

  • Use an oven thermometer to keep an eye on your oven temperature. It is THE biggest factor in troubleshooting baking problems. I could not believe how much my oven temperature in reality differed to the temperature on it's own dial.
  • Get all the ingredients to room temperature apart from the milk.
  • Only mix as much as you absolutely have to. Muffins can become tough if over mixed only a little.
  • Add more cinnamon if you are a cinnamon fan. It is only a hint here.
  • If you have any crumble topping in your freezer then sprinkle some on the top of the muffins before they go in the oven for an even more incredible top to these muffins.
  • Exchange the strawberries with other fruit to suit you. Blueberries would be good as would raspberries and peaches.
