Glazed Lemon Strawberry Muffins are bursting with fresh, ripe strawberries and topped with a tangy sweet lemon glaze. They're easy to make and perfect for a spring breakfast or brunch!
Who doesn't love a delicious homemade muffin for breakfast?! If you're crazy about the combination of lemon and strawberries, you'll love these tasty lemon strawberry muffins!
My kids love muffins, so I like to make a batch or two on the weekend and save some for a quick grab-and-go breakfast during the week. They're perfect for busy mornings, especially if we're running late. And, I get to have a muffin with my morning coffee, so it's definitely a win-win situation!
Anyway, one of my most popular posts happens to be an easy recipe for lemon blueberry muffins. We make them most often during blueberry season or when we have extra lemons to use up -- like now.
The Hubs brought home a bunch of lemons that one of his coworkers had given him, so I've been making as many lemon recipes as possible, like Instant Pot Whole Chicken, Sheet Pan Lemon Chicken and Instant Pot Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup .
Since it's not blueberry season yet, I decided to use our favorite recipe for lemon blueberry muffins and substitute fresh strawberries, instead. I don't know if you have strawberries in season where you are yet, but I sure hope you do!
We have some perfectly ripe, red strawberries in the stores now, so using these in place of the blueberries was easy. I had one of my sous chefs cut a few up, and we mixed them into the batter.
We even added a few more strawberries to the muffin tops for an extra pop of color. A few more strawberries are always a good thing, right!
The muffins take about 15 to 20 minutes to bake, depending upon your oven. I start testing them at 15 minutes, but by 20 minutes, they're definitely ready!
And for a little extra flavor, we top these babies off with a simple glaze made with powdered sugar and lemon juice. I also like to add a sprinkle of lemon zest over the top.
And there you have it -- gorgeous, colorful glazed lemon strawberry muffins. Don't they look amazing? And honestly, you guys, they taste even better than they look!

My family is crazy about these easy glazed lemon strawberry muffins. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
My strawberries gave a lot of juice...making the muffins quite wet after 18 minutes...not sure if I should have dusted them with cornstarch first?
I've never had that problem. Maybe the strawberries were just extra juicy?
