Baking Double Header – Strawberry Oaties & Peachy Keen Muffins

Strawberry Oaties

Sometimes you just have a bunch of uber ripe Ontario peaches & berries laying around.  Put ’em to work!

Recipes Adapted From All


Strawberry Oaties

  • 2 cups finely chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup regular rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat to 375.  Mix dry. Combine wet.  Mix together. I forgot the milk and they still turned out pretty yummy! So i cut it out of the recipe above. I cooked mine for 15 minutes though the original recipe said 8…

Peachy Keen Muffins

 Peachy Keen Muffins

  • 3 cups all-purpose whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups white brown sugar
  • 2 cups peeled, pitted, and chopped peaches

Oven at 400.  Mix wet. Mix dry. Fold peaches into dry. Fold wet into dry.  Spoon into greased muffin cups. Bake for 25 minutes. Forgot about mine while I was playing with Baby H so they had an extra 2 minutes and turned out good but a little on the crispy side 🙂

Strawberry Picnic Cake

get to a farm and get pickin'!

Have had a hankering for strawberry rhubarb pie for awhile now but since I haven’t made it over to the Grandparents to pick their rhubarb yet, had to use up the berries!

Came across this recipe for the perfect summer cake. If anybody has a picnic to go to this would make a terrific go-along!  Was very inspired by a recent invite I got for a picnic-themed bday party that Baby H is invited to! Anyways here we go:

6 tblsp unsalted butter

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4 cup granulated sugar plus a lil on the side to sprinkle on top

1 egg

1/2 cup milk (or substitute w/ soy, almond or rice milk)

1 lb strawberries, cut off tops and halve em.

1 tsp vanilla

Cream sugar, butter, egg, milk and vanilla in large bowl.  Mix dry ingredients in other bowl. Add dry to wet gradually.

Pop into a buttered pie plate (deep dish) and put halved strawberries on top of batter (squish em in as much as you can).

Sprinkle a bit o’ sugar on top (about 2 tblsp).

Oven at 350 for 10 min, then turn down to 325 for 60 min.

Voila – Simple & Scrummy!

Happy Thursday!
