Strawberry Streusel Muffins

Mmmmm I love any kind of berry,  and these muffins with strawberries are berry delicious!!  The recipe comes from Betty Crocker's Best Loved Recipes.  The muffins are good for breakfast, brunch or tea time.  The strawberries enhanced with the orange zest makes for a wonderful flavor combination.  I hope you give them a try soon.

3/4 cup milk                                                    
1/2 cup oil
1 T. orange zest
2 cups flour
1 T. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1/3 cup sugar

Heat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper baking cups.

Mix milk, oil, orange zest and egg in large bowl until well blended.  Stir in the flour, baking powder, salt, strawberries and sugar just until moistened.
Prepare the Pecan Streusel Topping.  Fill muffins two-thirds full with batter.  Sprinkle batter with the topping.  Bake 15-20 minutes.

Pecan Streusel Topping

(I only use half of this and save the rest for another recipe)

1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour

Mix all ingredients until well blended.
