We love the combination of strawberry and orange in this sweet breakfast muffin with a streusel topping. For a less conventional (but equally delicious) twist, try the basil variation. The hint of basil complements the fruity berries wonderfully.

"I had to do seventh grade home and careers home work, and this totally helped my grade. I got a 100%! Yay. Well these taste so good. I will have to try them again. A lot of ingredients, but that did not stop our class from making these....

I'm not a huge fan of orange zest or juice in my baked goods, so I went ahead and used 1 tsp of lemon zest in the topping and another 1 tsp of lemon zest in the batter, using a total of one cup of nonfat buttermilk instead of using any orange juice. I also had to use frozen organic strawberries since the strawberries in our area weren't sweet/ripe yet. The muffins came out great - really flavorful, soft, and with a great crumb. My only complaint is that the strawberries came out a bit mushy - but I think this is due to the fact that I used frozen berries instead of fresh. I'll definitely be making these again with fresh berries. I think they would taste great with any kind of chopped fresh fruit or berries and different citrus zests. A great recipe that works well with substitutions.


The muffins came out very soft and flavorfull.. definitely a keeper!!


The Muffins turned out soft! The orange zest made all the difference and the strussel toppin makes this muffins "the star". I served them as dessert. No one could guess its made with whole wheat pastry flour and no butter. I used the tip for the butter milk! Awesome recipe!! Must try!
