Strawberry Muffins

  I wanted to try something different and found this recipe in Allrecipes. I made changes to the recipe which are noted in blue. If you want to see the orginal recipe it's under Florida Strawberry Muffins.

1 1/2 cups chopped fresh strawberries ( I used 2 cups-)                             
 1/2 cup white sugar   ( see note below regarding sugar)
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened ( used 1/2 cup butter)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
I also added 1/2 tsp baking powder
                      1/2 tsp cinnamon
In a small bowl, combine the strawberries and 1/2 cup sugar. Set aside for 1 hour. Drain, reserving liquid and berries separately. ( I pulsed the strawberries in the cuisinart 3 short pulses)

                   Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a 12 cup muffin tin, or line with paper liners.

In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and 1/4 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt and nutmeg; stir into the creamed mixture alternately with the juice from the berries. Gently stir in the berries. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups. ( I creamed 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup 
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. ( I sprinkled with sugar)
I also added chocolate to the recipe, added about 1/2 cup chips.)
Good recipe will make again.
