recipe: strawberry crumb muffins

Strawberry Crumb Muffins
(Makes 1 dozen large muffins, or 1.5 dozen medium muffins)

A three-part recipe that is a little more time consuming than your average muffin, it is the perfect addition to any summer (or fall) outing or get-together. They are moist and sweet (but not overly), and can be enjoyed by children and adults alike. That’s a win in my book!

Ingredients: 

For the topping
½ cup granulated sugar

½ cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
4 tbsp butter, room temperature

For the muffins
3 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt
6 tbsp butter, room temperature
1 ½ cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk
2 cups strawberries, chopped

For the icing
(depending on how thick you would like it- this is quite thin)
1 ¼ cup powdered sugar

1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp milk
¾ tsp vanilla extract

Steps:

1. For the topping- combine all four ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Mix until consistency is very breakable. Set aside.

2. For the muffins- preheat oven to 400°F. Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt into a medium bowl. Mix well.

3. In a large bowl, combine the butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and milk. Then gently fold in the dry flour ingredients. Finally, add the strawberries and stir until just combined.

4. Divide the batter among 12 (or 18) well-greased muffin cups. Then top each one with the crumb topping. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until evenly cooked through. Let cool before transferring to a rack.

5. For the icing- combine all ingredients and mix until the icing is as thick as you would like it. (The runnier the glaze, the easier it is to drizzle!) Then spread over each cooled muffin.

The muffins should be eaten soon after baking. Store them in a fridge in an airtight container up to 5 days. Can be frozen, thawed, and eaten as well!

seven months old

Hello Tuesday readers! (I had intended on publishing this yesterday, but between our eventful week last week and just returning from a last minute getaway, I had to delay this post until today.)

Wilder is now 7 months old. 

Over the last month he has gone from three naps a day to now only two. He also no longer co-sleeps, preferring to sleep alone in his crib instead. This gives us all much more restful nights. 

Wilder eats a variety of fruits, vegetables, and meat. His absolute favourite is ham. 

He has said “mama” and loves to shake his head “no” when he doesn’t want something. He also has turned into the biggest hugger, often giving me several throughout the day.

He is growing up so quickly, it’s almost too hard to believe.

I love him I love him I love him.

ninth anniversary

My darling husband. Nine years ago (on one warm morning) we eloped. It feels like a lifetime ago. So much has happened since then.

Nine years. Eight jobs. Seven moves. Six pets. Five properties. Four vehicles. Three pregnancies. Two children. One adventure.

Onwards and upwards, my love. Next year is a big one.

xoxo
