Strawberry Muffins for Amber

I have wanted to have my friend over for months to try these muffins! They live in a cookbook called "the good enough to eat Breakfast Cookbook" by Carrie Levin. Other favorite recipes in this cookbook are Orange Date Muffins, Norwegian Waffles, Fundamental French Toast, and Corned Beef Hash. Not to mention the best hash browns you have ever had!!

I invited my friend over to pamper her and she came bearing gifts for me!!

New Aprons for my wall...hands off they are vintage and I will not be wearing them.

The greatest 1959 cookbook that has a recipe for a lime jello encrusted ham that I must make someday. Perhaps a new Thanksgiving tradition?

All I made her was a muffin!
Toss berries with lemon juice.

Mix egg yolks with vanilla.
Whip whites with cream of tarter.
I like to have everything ready to just dump it in the sugar and butter after they are fluffy:
Add to sugar in this order:
  • Yolks with vanilla
  • half dry ingredients
  • buttermilk
  • rest of dry ingredients
  • berries with lemon juice
  • Coconut
  • Whites with cream of tarter


Cut ingredients together. It is very thick. Be gentle.

I load the cups up. Bake 325 degrees approx 25-30 minutes.

T, thanks so much for posting this recipe. I know you're busy. As it happens I was just thinking about these today and not wanting to ask you to dig through your stuff to find it! If you do make the jell-o encrusted ham with mayo you must wear a beehive hair-do!

Your sister needs to teach me how to Beehive!!! I so would do that..and love every minute of it.
