- ½ cup unsalted butter ( 1 stick ) melted and cooled
- 1 ½ cups sugar
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 large eggs at room temperature
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Zest of ½ orange
- 2 ⅓ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- 2 ⅛ tbsp cinnamon
- 1 cup roughly chopped strawberries (fresh or frozen)
- ½ cup buttermilk
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Whisk the butter, 1 ¼ cups sugar, salt, eggs, vanilla, and orange zest together in a bowl.
Sift the flour, baking powder, nutmeg, and ⅛ tablespoon cinnamon over the butter mix. Add the berries to the flour mix and gently fold a few times. Add the buttermilk and gently mix together.
Scoop out the dough into paper-lined muffin pans. Will make six Texas-size muffins or twelve standard muffins.
Combine the remaining 2 tablespoons cinnamon with the remaining ¼ cup sugar and sprinkle on top of the muffins. Bake for 20 to 35 minutes, depending on the size of the muffins.
