So I whip up the batter, adding cocoa powder to achieve the chocolate-y flavor.
I thaw my pre-cut and lemon-juice-treated-to-maintain-color strawberries, and then added them to the batter. (No, Mom, I didn't save and wash the ziploc after I used it. I'm sorry - shame on me!)
I fill up some pretty little purple muffin papers gifted to me by my mommy with the batter.
Here they are, all lined up! You can see I made 18. But I could have filled them more, so next time I'll make 12 bigger ones.
And, with the magic of the oven, 30 minutes later I got this!
And another photo, more poorly lit.
I would have taken a photo of the insides, but you're better off not seeing that part. Chocolate muffins with red strawberry guts isn't the prettiest. But tasty? Definitely!
And I still have one bag of strawberries left in the freezer for something else! (Maybe I'll save that bag, okay Mom?)
P.S. Mom - you better be reading these, or it'll look like I'm talking to myself...;)
