Strawberry muffins with cream cheese

Another recipe for strawberry muffins. As I mentioned earlier strawberries are my favourite fruits and they are available everywhere at this time of year. When I sow new recipe on this web site  I had to give it a try. Muffins are soft, almost fluffy and cream cheese topping give them a welcome moisture. In comparison to the other one I baked some time ago it is easier to take them out of muffin cases.

Ingredients for 6 big muffins: (my muffin cases are slightly smaller so I had 10 muffins)
  • 150g flour
  • 40g caster sugar
  • 1and 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 60g melted butter
  • 125 ml milk
  • about 90g diced strawberries
  • 70g strawberry jam
Cream cheese topping:
  • 90g soft cheese (I used Philadelphia)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
Prepare cream cheese topping. Put soft cheese and sugar into a bowl and with fork mash them together. Set aside. Dice the strawberries.

Heat up the oven to 180C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.

Put the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in the bowl and whisk together.
In separate bowl whisk egg, add milk and cooled down butter, whisk again. Pour this mixture into dry ingredients, combine everything. Do not over stir. At last gently fold in jam and strawberries. Spoon the batter into the muffin cases, almost to the top edge of paper cases. With a small spoon place small amount of cream cheese mixture on the top of each muffin. Bake for 20 min. Check with toothpick if baked inside. Cool down on wire rack.
