Am I the only one who can’t wait for summer? After getting back from our Mexico vacation, I am just dreaming of warm, sunny days again! The other sweet thing I’m dreaming about, these Strawberry Crumb Cake muffins from A Latte Food!
My favourite berry is a toss up between raspberries and strawberries! I made some yummy Raspberry White Chocolate Scones a while ago so this time I chose to bake with strawberries and settled on muffins…or should I say mini cakes because that’s what it tastes like!
These muffins are perfectly sweet as they’re filled with strawberries and topped with delicious streusel and a vanilla glaze! You should have smelt my kitchen while these lovelies were baking – it was seriously sweet summertime! The smell alone is reason to give them a try 🙂
