How to make Bisquick strawberry muffins
Start with mixing all the ingredients in the medium size bowl. Don’t add strawberries yet. Stir ingredients together until just combined and than gently fold in chopped strawberries. Do not overmix the batter.
Spray muffin tins with oil. I used a 12 muffin tin. Evenly add the batter into each muffin tin space (about couple tablespoons of muffin batter). Make the Streusel topping. Mix soft butter, sugar and Bisquick mix until nice and crumbly. Put on top of raw muffin batter right before it goes to the oven. Bake for about 15 minutes.
Here is what you will need to make strawberry Bisquick muffins:
Bisquick – a ready-made baking mix of flour, salt, sugar, and baking soda. It is a great mix to have on hand because you don’t have to measure out the dry ingredients and it can be used to make pancakes, waffles, biscuits, and muffins.
Sugar – keeps baked goods soft and fluffy while adding sweetness.
Milk – adds flavor and moisture and helps the muffins to brown in the oven.
Strawberries – fresh in-season berries give the best flavor and texture.
Vegetable oil – helps keep the muffins moist and tender.
Butter – to make the streusel topping.
Egg – adds moisture and binds all the ingredients together.
What is the secret to fluffy muffins
If you struggle with making light and fluffy muffins, here are 4 tips that can help them come out great.
Use vegetable oil, it helps to create a tender cake-like muffin that’s soft and fluffy. Often times baked goods like cookies and cakes require creamed butter, but for muffins, it can cause them to be thick and dense. For this recipe, you only need a little bit of oil but it is an important ingredient.
Use milk instead of water. Milk helps to soften the texture of the muffins and it gives them a golden brown top.
Starting with room temperature ingredients is also helpful. If you have the time, take out your milk and egg a few minutes before you are ready to start baking. This will help the muffins to be fluffy and moist and to rise faster in the oven.
Lastly, don’t over mix the muffin batter. Just mix the batter until everything is combined, otherwise, your muffins can turn out dense.
