Ingredients

Streusel Topping:

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

Muffins:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Heat the oven to 400F degrees. Grease the cups of a regular 12-cup muffin tin.
  • Prepare the streusel topping by mixing together in a small bowl the pecans, brown sugar, flour and butter until well blended. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl mix together the milk, oil, orange peel and egg until well blended.
  • Stir in the flour, strawberries, sugar, baking powder and salt just until blended.
  • Distribute the batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups. They should be about 2/3 full.
  • Sprinkle the streusel topping evenly over the muffin batter.
  • Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for about 5 - 10 minutes. Carefully remove the muffins from the pan. You may have to loosen around the edges with a sharp knife. Place on a rack to cool a bit. Enjoy warm.
