Fresh Strawberry Rosemary Muffins

Fresh strawberry and rosemary in a muffin....I have never tasted that combination before. I was a bit hesitant but thought I would brave it.

When I took it out of the oven it had a banana fragrance. Even Mr Redneck asked me whether I made banana muffins. Maybe it was the rosemary combined with the strawberry which made it smell like it had banana in it. But whatever the fragrance, the muffin was moist the crumb soft and tender.

Definitely worth making especially since strawberries are in season. The strawberries and rosemary are fresh from my own garden.

Makes 18 muffins

185ml yoghurt
2 eggs
185ml oil or melted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract

260 gm plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
100gm sugar
1 Tbsp rosemary, finely chopped

1 cup strawberry, sliced

1. Mix together yoghurt, eggs, oil and vanilla extract.

2. Sieve flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda into a separate container. Add in the sugar and rosemary.

3. Gently stir the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined.

4. Add in the strawberries. Stir.

5. Scoop to grease muffin tins or cupcases.

6. Bake at 190C for 10-15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
