This is really good. I used fresh strawberries and mashed about 1/2 pint in with the butter, then I added a 1/4 c orange juice. I used another pint of fresh berries instead of the frozen. My kids loved it and I'll make it again.

There is something missing from this recipe. The batter was so dry I ended up adding liquid so it actually WAS batter. I think the author just missed something like oil or milk. After I played with it the muffins came out okay.

I chose to go with this particular recipe because of its simplicity, but I did make two minor changes. I put the whole egg in with the butter/sugar mix and I used 2 cups of freshly sliced and sugared strawberries....juice and all....and folded them into the other mix. Bake time for an 8x8 pan in my convection oven was 40 minutes. It was our first taste of strawberry bread and it was an instant hit. Unbelievable moist and absolutely delicious.

Very good! I chose to make this into muffins vs. bread. I also used fresh strawberries vs. frozen that I let sit in a little sugar in order to produce their own juice. I did find the batter to be a little on the thick side, so I added about 1/4 cup of milk. I also had some shredded coconut on hand so I threw that in for a little added flavor. I baked these in a Texas sized muffin tin and sprinkled the tops with some turbinado sugar for a little extra "crunch" before popping them in the oven. I baked them at 400 for about 23 minutes. Sweet and fruity!

My changes were fresh strawberries instead of frozen (we live in central florida), vanilla instead of almond and a ripe banana. Super good and moist, I did four mini loaves,and the three i cut were gone quickly after my MOPS steering meeting. Will definitely make again.

I followed this recipe exactly (EXCEPT I added a little extra almond extract by accident) and it was delicious! Moist, flavorful, with a nice crust. My hubby loved it, so I guess I'll make this again!

Love it! Followed the recipe except used fresh strawberries that I sugared and reserved the juice from that. I used about 2-1/2 cups of fresh strawberries, sliced, added about 2 Tbsp of sugar and a little water - let stand an hour or more. Took longer to bake - I might try a larger pan next time or put it into mini pans.

These muffins were good. I used fresh strawberries and a 1/4 c of orange juice as some other people have suggested.
