Have you ever tried a new recipe just to admire the pretty finished product? I have! This is one of those recipes, but lucky for me these muffins taste as good as they look.
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup plain yogurt
2 large bananas, mashed
1/2 cup diced strawberries, plus 1 strawberry very thinly sliced
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line or spray a muffin tin. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook until the butter browns and begins to smell nutty. Pour into a bowl and set aside to cool slightly.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, vanilla extract and yogurt. Whisk in the mashed bananas. Pour the butter in a very slow stream to temper the eggs and be sure they don’t curdle.
Pour the dry ingredients over the wet and incorporate with a spatula. Fold in the strawberries until just combined.
Using an ice cream scoop, portion the batter evenly into 12 muffin tins and place a sliced strawberry on top. Bake for 18-20 minutes.
Makes 12 muffins
