midnight delight

so this morning is the official launch of a new care ministry at our church that i'm helping to start ( im really excited about it and praying there is strong interest. getting everything ready to go last night for the booth I have to man after the services and in just my style... the one night im not crawling for the bed for sleep and feel slightly energetic soon = hey, ive got an idea (10:45 p.m.) - wouldnt it be nice to have some sort of baked goods at the table? (insert pete's rolling eyes) its kinda fitting for the ministry and well... would be cute too. why i do things like this to myself i'll never know - but probably wont quit either. anyway, so around 11 i get around to mixin' up 2 kinds of mini muffins for the morning. one was just "okay": cinnamon streusel. the other recipe was worth the late evening a delicious find!: fresh strawberry muffins

i had to share the recipe(found here). would be great as a breakfast treat or dessert but not too sweet. hope you enjoy:

Fresh Strawberry Muffins

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
2 cups flour
2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped strawberries
3 tsps sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and mix well.

Sift flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. Add flour mixture and milk alternately to butter mixture. Add vanilla. Gently stir in strawberries.

Spoon batter into muffin pans.

Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over muffins. (I didnt do this... but sprinkled with powdered sugar when they cooled)

Bake at 400ยบ for 20-25 minutes. (if your making minis - only 8 min or so)

late-night deliciousness and hopefully early-morning jolt...
