  • 1/2 cup water
  • ½ cup strawberry soda
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries optional
  • Red sanding sugar for decoration
  • 2 sticks room temperature unsalted butter

  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 1/4 cup strawberry soda
  • 2 ounces Dekuyper Strawberry Patch Liqueur
  • 1 tablespoon red sanding sugar

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with baking liners.
