Bake It With Love and a Lucky Leaf Giveaway


Love is in the air and bakers everywhere are thinking about what they should whip up to fill the tummies of their loved ones. Look no further! I can help you out with a little help from my friends at Lucky Leaf. Did you know that I am a Lucky Leaf Ambassador? I am! I love this company and their products. I know the quality that goes into each can of pie filling and I am proud to bake it up with love for my family. 

I made Strawberries and Cream muffins for my family and they loved them! I wanted to make these pink and white (I have little girls, we have pink everything around here- even our food!) so I changed the recipe a little tiny bit and used a white cake mix instead of a chocolate one. Minor change, but the pink muffins were worth it ;)

Strawberries and Cream Muffins
  • 1 (18.25 oz) package White Cake mix (or Devil's Food)
  • 1 (21 oz) can Lucky Leaf Premium Strawberry Pie Filling
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/3 cups sour cream
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Lightly coat 24 muffin cups with non stick spray; set aside. (I used muffin papers). In a large mixing bowl, stir together the cake mix, pie filling and eggs until moistened. Remove 1 cup of the batter and set aside. Divide remaining batter among the muffin cups, filling each about 1/2 full. 

In a medium bowl, whisk together sour cream, 1 egg, sugar, flour and vanilla until smooth. Spoon a small amount over the top of the batter in the cups and top with a little dollop of the reserved batter. Batter will not cover the sour cream completely. 

Bake for 25 minutes or until the tops spring back when lightly touched. Remove and cool in pans on wire racks for 15 minutes. Loosen edges (if you didn't use muffin papers) and remove from pans. Let cool completely. Chill within 2 hours. 



Lucky Leaf also wanted you to have some really sure printables to use to dress up your baked goods for gift giving or just because. You can download Valentine's Printables and Valentine's Recipe Cards to make your own delicious treats and package them up all pretty too!


And the best part of all of this? Lucky Leaf has generously offered to send on of my readers this lovely package including: A can of Lucky Leaf Pie Filling, Recipe Card and a Bakery Bag to package up your treats for someone you love!

You can visit Lucky Leaf at their brand new website, follow them on FacebookTwitter and on Pinterest
