Blueberry Muffins and Strawberry Minibreads

The last two items included in the September Baking Extravaganza gift bags for Mr. Gooch's mother and grandmother were blueberry muffins and strawberry mini breads. After realizing that I wasn't going to be able to make my usual favorite version since I didn't have enough plain yogurt in the fridge, I went searching for another version.

I found this recipe from Made With Love. In her version she used raspberries, the recipe called for blueberries so I figured I would be OK also using strawberries. Turns out I was right.

For the muffins, I followed the recipe closely but added more fruit.

For the strawberry mini breads, I substituted strawberries, put the batter into 4 mini-loaf pans and baked until the center
tested done with a toothpick, about 30 minutes.
