It was when strawberries were coming out and the juicy sweet fruit laid all so neatly in there turquoise square bins that I knew I had to bake something with them! I absolutely love a great simple corn bread recipe. However, I took it to the next level by adding farm fresh sweet strawberries. You can not go wrong. I also love a coarser cornmeal in my muffin, but to each his or her own. This recipe is great for those with celiacs disease, IBS, dairy allergies, and also for those with chicken egg allergies. Many people have challenges with the protein in chicken eggs, however the duck egg protein they do not. Duck eggs also give the baked goods a much moister product!
