Sweet Strawberry Muffins with a crunchy sugar muffin top.
It’s the little things that take something ordinary and make it extraordinary.
Like a little sugar on top that glistens and adds a little crunch to the muffin top and makes all the other muffins jealous.
Or fresh chopped strawberries, folded into the batter. As the Strawberry Muffins bake, the syrup from the strawberries seeps into the batter making incredibly moist muffins.
