A recipe for a hide-inside kinda day

Here is a fun recipe you can do with your kiddos inside on a rainy or snowy day, courtesy of our Camp Chef recipe vault. I like it because the recipe is very easy and it only needs one bowl. The kids like it because there is an opportunity for smashing.

Berry-Smash Muffins


1 2/3 cups fresh or frozen strawberries (raspberries, blackberries, or a mix of berries work well too)
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup yogurt
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (for a whole-grain option, spelt flour works really well)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. If you are using frozen berries, let them sit out the the bowl you will be using for about half an hour, just long enough for them to be smashable. (You don’t want too much of the juice to run out as this will make the batter runny).
  2. Heat oven to 425 F.
  3. Put a paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups, or grease just the bottoms of 12 muffin cups. (Or use the silicone ones)
  4. Slightly smash strawberries in large bowl, using fork. (If you’re letting a little person do this, a potato masher is a fun accessory)
  5. Stir in sugar, yogurt and eggs until mixed.
  6. Stir in other ingredients just until moistened.
  7. Spoon batter into muffin cups.
  8. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until light golden brown or toothpick poked in center comes out clean.
  9. Cool 5 minutes.
  10. Loosen sides of muffins from pan if needed, and take them out of the pan.

Makes 12 muffins.
