Strawberries and chocolate muffins

Surely these are the last strawberries of the season. When I open the package the aroma was tempting. not given to resist and ate  a couple, super sweet, I think it was the best I ate this year.

Do not have much idea what to do with them, but also had chocolate in the pantry and thought some muffins for the breakfast would be a good option  How good it was.

I also want to tell you that I opened a portfolio of photography on Facebook, so if you want to be fans of the page or want my photographic work go here to the  link.


  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 75 g flour
  • 115 g of sugar
  • 200 g bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 200g strawberries well washed, cut  in circles
  • 2 eggs
  • 250 ml milk
  • 90 ml of canola oil
  • Preheat oven to 210 ° C
  • In a bowl mix the flour and sugar
  • Place the strawberries and chocolate and mix gently
  • In another bowl beat the eggs with the milk and oil
  • Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ones and mix no more than ten seconds. The batter should be visibly lumpy, and you may see pockets of dry flour. That's OK! It's extremely important not to overmix the batter, or the resulting muffins will be too hard.
  • Gently pour the batter into the prepared muffin pan and bake immediately.
  • Bake until golden brown and a toothpick putting it out clean. Approximately 30 minutes
  • Let cool on a rack

      Makes 6 large muffins

      These are a perfect way to start the day. They remind me of upcoming Spring days and warm sunshine.

      the paper cup has adopted such a nice colour: soft pink with a golden pattern. I guess it's because of the dough and the juicy strawberries.
      Spring hasn't yet begun here. We continue with snow and cold!
