Buttery coffee cake muffins studded with fresh strawberries and a sweet crumble topping.

Yields: 12 muffins



Preheat oven to 375. Line a 12-count muffin pan with cupcake papers.

In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and the sugar. Add the egg, vanilla, and lemon zest and beat to incorporate.

In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

Alternate adding the flour mixture and milk to the mixer, beating until smooth and combined. Using a medium cookie scoop, add the muffin batter to the prepared muffin pan. Top each muffin with strawberries, distributing them evenly between all 12 muffins.

To make the crumble topping: to a small mixing bowl add the cubed butter, the flour, and sugars. Cut in using a pastry blender until the mixture resembles crumbs. Sprinkle generously over the strawberries.

Bake the muffins for 20-24 minutes or until baked through and golden. Best served warm and enjoyed within 24 hours.
