In a small bowl, combine the strawberries and 100g sugar. Set aside for 1 hour. Drain, reserving liquid and berries separately.
Preheat the oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin, or line with paper cases.
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and 4 tablespoons sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, bicarb, salt and nutmeg; stir into the creamed mixture alternately with the juice from the berries. Gently stir in the berries. Spoon mixture into the prepared muffin cups.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool in the tin on a wire rack.
the mix was a bit dry so I added a little milk until it looked right, I also added slightly more bicarb and they turned out great. wasn't as sweet as id hoped so maybe a little more sugar next time too but all in all they were still really good - 17 Mar 2014
