Getting My Bake On

It has been *forever* since I used our oven for something creative.  With all this travel over the past month, there have been absolutely no baked goods in our kitchen.  Sad, sad.  Tonight I fixed that sorry situation with some homemade strawberry muffins.

When I was growing up, we'd go strawberry picking in June, right around the end of the school year.  We'd make BATCHES of these ah-mazing muffins with all of the freshly picked strawberries.  It never fails, whenever I have one of these muffins, I always feel like summer is just around the corner and school is just about out for the year (even though it has been ages since I was a student).

So - here is the ridiculously easy recipe:
Combine 3 cups of flour, 2 cups of sugar, 1 teaspoon each of salt and baking soda, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, and 4 eggs. (I usually add in a bunch of extra cinnamon).

Then add: 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce and 2 cups of sliced strawberries.

Mix together, put in lined muffin tin.  Bake at 325 until they look done (put a toothpick in and when it comes out clean, muffins are done).  I'm guessing it takes 20-25 minutes or so.

And then... enjoy!

@Harriet - YES! This is the muffin recipe! PS - can we go back to Lake Placid again, I had so much fun up there during the training weekend with you and everyone else.
