Strawberry Muffins

Published March 31, 2013 by rainbow28

# Recipe from a book I saw from Expo – Popular Sale.  But I’ve forgotten the title.  This is suppose to be a Cherry Muffins but I only have strawberries.  Favourite!

I was feeling bored and decided to bake around 9pm.  Making myself perspire like nobody biz.

I tried to decorate with frosting but failed.  My frosting too watery.  End up, got to use strawberry to hide the imperfection.  keke….  Lousy me….

I like the taste of the muffins.  Not too buttery and just right sweetness.  And this round, no overflowing at all.  Phew~ So going to bake this again.

Ingredients:

75g butter

75g caster sugar

2 eggs beaten

75g self raising flour

1/2 tsp Almond extract (* I used Vanilla Essence)

110g candied (glace) cherry, chopped (* I used strawberries but I did not candied them)

Frosting:

75g icing sugar

2 tsp hot water

Methods:

1. Beat butter & sugar till light & fluffy.

2. Gradually add the eggs alittle at a time and blend well.

3. Sift in flour & gently fold into the mixture with almond extract & cherries.

4. Spoon into the paper cup & bake for 12 – 15 minutes or till golden.

5. Preheat over @ 180 degree.

Frosting method:

Sift icing sugar into a bowl & stir in enough hot water to make a thick frosting.  You may search the web for better methods though.
