Cupcake Or Muffin?

I'm not sure. There are elements of both. I adapted a quickbread recipe, but then I added a glaze. For now, I'm calling it a muffincake.

It reminds me of this quote below that just breaks my heart. Talk about bittersweet! Read this post to find out more.

"The cupcake shop was really selling muffins but I didn't have the heart to tell them."

This post and my Strawberry Muffincakes are my submission to the Strawberry Seduction event over at Mike's Table,

Strawberries are a delicious and beautiful fruit. I eat them year round. You know what that means. I live in Massachusetts. It's March... They aren't local!

I hope you can forgive me, but to keep scurvy at bay, us Bay Stater's have to have our fruit shipped in during these cold winter months. So recently, I bought some strawberries from someplace far away and enjoyed them very much.

Strawberry Muffincakes
(makes a dozen medium muffincakes)

1 cup pureed strawberries
1/3 cup butter (softened)
1/4 cup nonfat vanilla yogurt
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup soy flour
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

In a medium bowl, combine butter, yogurt, sugar, and strawberries. Mix well. Add eggs, vanilla, salt, powder, and soda. Stir well. Add flours until combined.

I used liner cups in a medium-sized muffin pan. Add batter and bake at 325 degrees for about 50 minutes. Let cool and then use a spoon to top the muffincake with vanilla glaze. The glaze was left over from another recipe. I didn't use a recipe for the glaze when I made it, but this recipe is a good start. Enjoy!

Hahaha!! Clever one! I like the cake Muffin or is it Muffin cake!! Eternal question!Looks great though!:D
Those muffins look delicious! I've been on a muffin kick lately, but finally ran out, so you can imagine my dismay this morning when I had no breakfast that wasn't a granola bar. I also really like the quote--Google can definitely pull in some bizarre searches...I've certainly had a few, lol (the funniest will be porn related--now THAT will be a disappointed web surfer)!

Thanks for participating!

I love strawberries. When I drove a truck delivering fruit & produce, many years back, I'd eat them all day, just taking some from the truck at every stop. Tasty, healthy, refreshing, full of good stuff.
