Enjoying Summer's Bounty

Crossroads quilt by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts
This is one of those times when there's a whole lot going on in my studio, but it's for future work that I can't show just yet.  It will be this way thru the month of July.  So, what am I to do for blog posts during this time?  Share a great recipe!

Now that the summer berries are ripe, delicious and inexpensive, I've begun making some of my favorite foods using them. Yesterday, I made a batch of Strawberry Coffee Cake Muffins.  
Oh, so yummy!!  I originally found the recipe a few years ago on Pinterest, but I have no idea who the original source is.  
The recipe uses 2 cups of fresh strawberries, but I feel the batter is adaptable to fresh blueberries or fresh peaches.  I like that you can use either regular milk or buttermilk.  I have made them both ways and feel that buttermilk is just a little tastier.  Buttermilk and/or sour cream in a baked goods recipe does something special to the batter, but if you don't want to buy buttermilk, you won't be disappointed.

I thought I would show you how the muffins look in progress.  Half the strawberries are folded into the batter, and the other half sprinkled on top.  Then, the crumb topping is added.  Be still my heart!

They are moist, delicious and full of berries.  I'll bet a mix of strawberry and blueberry would be great as well.
