I drink coffee almost every morning, and if I don’t get a cup in the morning I usually enjoy one in the afternoon. I’ve always had a bad habit of skipping breakfast, and usually I’ll skip breakfast before I’ll skip my coffee. I try to keep a selection of easy recipes that you can make quickly or that can be made ahead of time on busy mornings. I thought I would share a recipe for Strawberry Mint Muffins that they pair perfectly with a fresh cup of McCafé coffee.
I used fresh mint from my patio herb garden and strawberries from our orchard; I try to create recipes using ingredients that are in season or native to the area. This recipe can easily be doubled if you’re serving a larger crowd or taking them to a brunch. You can store them in a airtight container to serve them later if you don’t eat them all at once.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- ¾ cup vegetable oil
- 2 large eggs
- ¾ cup buttermilk
- 1 cup diced fresh strawberries
- 2 tablespoons finely diced fresh mint
- Preheat oven to 350F
- Grease muffin pan
- Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl
- Add eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, mint, and oil, and mix well
- Fold strawberries into the batter
- Bake 20 mins or until toothpick comes out clean
These muffins pair perfectly with McCafé Coffee. It’s now available at Walmart in both pods and premium bags in 8 flavors. Living in Bogotá, Colombia as an Army wife made me appreciate high-quality, fresh coffee. Many pre-ground coffee’s seem to have less flavor compared to fresh ground, but McCafé coffee smells and tastes like fresh ground beans. It’s made with 100% Arabica beans from the foremost coffee growing regions of the world. The taste is smooth with no-bitterness. You may have seen McCafé demos at your local Walmart. I love the aroma that fills our home when we brew a fresh pot of McCafé. We can have an amazing cup of coffee without having to leave home.
