Strawberry Streusel Muffins – The Topping

Crumble topping on muffins is everything. Okay, I still love other muffins but the streusel on these is just the right amount of sugary sweet with the tart of the dried strawberries to add depth and texture to a moist cupcake.

When I think of these muffins, I think of the baking version of a Strawberry Shortcake ice cream bar that I used to love so much as a kid. Maybe, just maybe, these Strawberry Streusel Muffins aren’t quite the same but they are a great alternative and make for an excellent snack in the lunch box, after school or morning treat with your coffee.
