Fresh Strawberry Muffins

I love these fresh strawberry muffins.  They remind me of when my kiddos were little.  My friend Mary, who lived across the street from me, gave me this recipe.  Actually she brought them over to my house one summer morning with a small bouquet of flowers from her yard.  Just what a tired mom of four kiddos needed.  I have made these countless times since that day…  Enjoy and while your at it make a batch to take to your neighbor.

3 c. flour

2 c. sugar

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

4 eggs, beaten

1 1/4 c. oil

2 1/2 c. fresh strawberries, sliced and slightly mashed

Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.  In a small mixing bowl combine eggs and oil.  Stir strawberries into the egg mixture.  Blend in flour until thoroughly combined.

Spoon into lightly greased muffin tins ( or use cupcake liners )
