Strawberry and Cream Mini Muffins

In honor of the Royal nuptials, Ashlee baked Strawberry and Cream Mini MuffinsShe found the Nigella Lawson recipe in People.  Ashlee is just learning her way around the kitchen, but her muffins turned out beautifully.  
Strawberry and Cream Mini Muffins
1 Cup Strawberries, slightly under-ripe, diced into quarter inch pieces
1 Squeeze of Fresh Lemon
1 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
1/3 Cup Sour Cream
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Large Egg
1 Teaspoon Powdered Sugar

Preheat oven to 400* F.  Line 24-cup mini-muffin tin with paper baking cups or spray with Pam.  

Put diced berries into a bowl and spritz with lemon juice; stir gently.

In medium bowl, stir together flour, sugar, and baking powder.

In a small bowl, beat the oil, sour cream, egg, and vanilla.  Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon.  Fold in the berries.  
Divide batter evenly among the cups.  Bake for 12-14 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.   Cool on a wire rack.  Once they are completely cooled, dust with powdered sugar.  

I will be sharing this recipe at Foodie Friday
