This is a very old recipe I cut out of the Boston Globe many years ago.
It originated in a cookbook called "Angel of the Sea" very different with a lemon glaze on the strawberries. I love a warmed muffin in the morning with coffee.
May not be the healthiest thing to eat but mmm so good !
I have included a Strawberry Lemon Frosting as shown.
