"Annie, can I have seconds? They are so good!" — Sara

"I'm going to save some for my mom—she loves this!" — Marshall

"The strawberry makes the bread good." — Juliana

"To me, the hiding part is the goodest part." — Amelia

To the Grown-ups:
Making muffins is a simple enough task for most adults, but for small children, it can be a challenge! Cracking eggs, measuring liquids, stirring a stiff batter, and filling muffin cups are all complex activities to a three- or four-year-old, so to simplify matters, you should prepare the muffin mix and melt the butter first.

The highlight of this recipe for the children is finding the hidden piece of fruit in the center of the muffin. You can vary the recipe by substituting slices of fresh or frozen peach, pitted cherries, or chunks of banana.

Cooking Hints and Safety Tips:

* Children love to break the eggs


2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons melted butter
12 medium-sized strawberries
2 to 3 tablespoons sugar for the strawberries

1) Preliminary: Grown-up assembles mix in medium-sized bowl and melts butter.

2) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Put muffin papers into the baking pan.

3) Break the eggs into the other bowl.

4) Add the milk, vanilla, and melted butter, and whisk about 20 times.

5) Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture. Mix with the spoon "until the flour is all gone."

6) Use a 1/4-cup measure with a handle to fill the muffin papers halfway.

7) Roll each strawberry in a little sugar, and put one in the center of each muffin, pushing it down with your finger.

8) Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted all the way down comes out clean. Remove from the pan to cool. Cool at least 10 minutes before eating. (The strawberries can get very hot.)
