Simple Strawberry Muffins

These cupcakes are so quick and easy to whip up and taste absolutely divine. I decided to bake these when Annabelle suddenly decided to go off her favourite red fruit, so with a punnet in the fridge that needed eating, I got baking and guess what … she loved them!

  6. Bake your muffins in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and a knife comes out clean from the centre to show that they are cooked through
