  • 2 cups flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 ¼ cups sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups diced fresh strawberries, divided

For the Streusel topping:

  • 3 Tablespoons butter, softened
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup flour

Preheat the oven to 375.  Line muffin tins with 18 liners. Dice strawberries into small pieces.  Pour flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon into a medium bowl. Whisk together.  Pour melted butter, sour cream and vanilla into a small bowl, then add the eggs. Whisk together until smooth.  Pour sour cream mixture into the flour mixture.  Stir together until combined. Add 1 1/2 cups diced strawberries and stir until combined.  Divide batter into the muffin cups.  Evenly sprinkle the 1/2 cup remaining strawberries over the tops of the muffins.  For the streusel, soften butter in a small bowl, add remaining ingredients  and stir until mixture comes together, then sprinkle over the muffins.  Reduce oven temperature to 350 and bake for 20-25 minutes.
