Smiling Strawberry Muffins

Well, that was a pretty risky move, baking these muffins. I was afraid that this would be a complete disaster. But, to my surprise, they are very tasty and soft :) Useful, cause they can be prepared with many different fruit. And, accidentally, some of them smiled to me ;) 


All the ingredients have to be in a room temperature.
  • 150 g of butter, melted and cooled down
  • 6 egg whites
  • 1 glass of powdered sugar
  • 1 glass + 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract 
  • fruit
Optional ingredients:
  • powdered sugar, to sprinkle the top

  1. Put the whites in a mixer's bowl, beat for 3-5 minutes to get soft (not stiff!) foam.
  2. Take powdered sugar and flour, mix it. Then, slowly, one tablespoon after another, mix it with egg whites, stiring gently. Add butter (remember that it needs to be cold), vanilla extract and mix till it links.
  3. Take muffin tins (either silicone or metal ones - but if metal - paper muffin cases are necessary*) and put the dough inside every tin. Then, put some pieces of fruit inside** (3-6 pieces, depending on the size of the fruit and the size of the tin)
  4. Bake in 170C for 20-25 minutes (to the dry toothpick)
  5. Cool down, optionally sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  6. Bon appetit! :)

* It is also possible to grease the tin with butter and sprinkle with flour.
** It is perfectly okay to put a lot of fruit in them - the dough will manage to cover them anyway.
