Back in July, me and the hubs took a little daycation to Becker Farms to sample some beer, wine, and do a little fruit picking out in the fields. I had always enjoyed apple picking here in my younger years on school field trips, so we thought why not give cherry and strawberry picking a try! Later in the week I made my absolute all time favorite muffin recipe with our freshly picked berries. Of course they taste even better when you put a little hard work into getting the ingredients farm fresh! Now that we’re heading into baking season, I thought I would share this wonderful recipe with you. I do SO much baking in the fall, especially muffins, these delicious little muffins in particular! This recipe is truly delightful and quickly became a family favorite. It’s essentially the perfect muffin, with a moist center, chunks of real fruit, and a crumb topping to adorn the top! I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
We managed to just catch the tail end of strawberry season here, but still found plenty of gorgeous berries and had no problem filling up a small bucket to take home! These were seriously some of the best strawberries I’ve had in my life. So sweet!
