Strawberry Butter Streusel Muffins
It’s a Boy! A beautiful, healthy, baby boy!
No, it’s not mine. This new miracle belongs to my sweet friend Stephanie of Back for Seconds. I’m so happy for her and this newest addition to her family.
Just like any new mama, that precious new bundle becomes the center of attention. Friends and family drop by. If it happens, like it does here in the south, no one shows up empty handed. Possibly, a gift for the baby, but always there’s food in hand.
No one wants to spend time in the kitchen when there’s a baby to love on and adore. I know I never did. Everyone still needs to eat. Casseroles, soups, cakes, cookies. Always something for everyone. I’ve always been partial to supplying the sweet side of things.
Dorothy of Crazy for Crust had a great idea to do a virtual Baby Shower for Stephanie. I know Stephanie has a sweet tooth. She makes things like 3 ingredient Kit Kats, Frozen Peanut Butter Mochas, and a Nutella Oreo Cheesecake Skillet Cookie that will blow your mind (and make you drool!)
I decided, if this were a real shower, I want to bring something versatile, something everyone could enjoy. Something that could be saved for later if needed, even frozen.
These Strawberry Butter Streusel Muffins met all the requirements. Great for breakfast or a snack. Sweet but not too sweet. The streusel on top give these the best butter taste in every bite. And of course the strawberries. You just have to love a strawberry muffin. At least in my house you do, so good!

- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
