These Bakery Style Strawberry Crumble Muffins are perfectly sweetened and tender with juicy strawberries and warm spices!
Remember these bakery style lemon poppy seed muffins? Well, we haven’t been able to get them out of our minds since we last devoured a batch way too quickly! My husband recently asked when I was going to make another batch, and when I went to the fridge to check if I had the ingredients, I saw a sad looking box of strawberries that needed to be used before they went bad.
So, we changed from lemon poppy seed and went for strawberry crumb muffins instead. Now we have two muffin recipes that are on the regular rotation! Instead of fresh lemon juice and zest, these muffins are stuffed with sweet, juicy strawberries and a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg.
We skipped the glaze and went for a crumb topping to complement the strawberries. And can you really go wrong with adding a crumb topping to muffins?! A bit of brown sugar and cinnamon in the topping was a perfect addition to these muffins.
Big. Tender. Not too oily (There’s actually no oil in them!). Not too sweet. These bakery style strawberry crumb muffins may just become your next go-to muffin recipe!
- 3 C all-purpose flour
- 1 C sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1¼ tsp cinnamon
- ¾ tsp nutmeg
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 1½ C plain yogurt
- 2 large eggs
- 8 tbsp butter, melted and cooled
- 1¼ C finely chopped strawberries
- ½ C all-purpose flour
- ½ C brown sugar
- 1½ tsp cinnamon
- ½ C butter, cold
- Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking pray.
- In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt.
- In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt and eggs until smooth. Gently fold yogurt mixture into flour mixture until just combined. Fold in melted butter and strawberries. Do not overmix.
- Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups. (I like to use an ice cream scoop to make it easy)
- In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Divide crumb topping on top of batter. (It will spill over onto the tin. That's okay, the batter will spill over onto it as it bakes and soak most of it up.)
- Bake until edge just start to turn golden brown and toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Rotate muffin tin halfway through baking.
- Remove muffin tin to a wire rack. Let muffins cool in tin for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack.
- Serve. Store leftovers in an airtight container.
