It is a foggy morning at Diablo Ranch so I thought I would add some sunshine.
2 cups flour
2/3 cups sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup melted, browned butter
6-8 strawberries, cubed
5 slices of candied oranges, diced
zest of two limes
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Melt and brown butter and put aside. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Alternatively, the ingredients can be whisked together well. Toss in oranges, strawberries, and zest and set aside.
In a separate bowl, stir together the egg, milk, vanilla, citrus juices, and melted butter until well combined.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir with a spoon or rubber spatula until just combined. The batter will be lumpy. Do not over-mix or the muffins will become tough. Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with muffin liners or spray with nonstick spray.
Divide the batter evenly between the 12 muffin cups using small ice cream scoop.
Bake at 425 F for about 10 minutes, lower oven to 350 and bake for additional 15-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs.
