Strawberries and Cream Cheese Muffins
Strawberries and cream cheese muffins are bursting with fresh summer strawberries and tangy creamy cheese. Easy to prepare and absolutely delicious!
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cups granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- ¼ cup vegetable oil
- 2 cups strawberries cut into small pieces
- ½ cup cream cheese (cut into 1 teaspoon-sized cubes)
Pre heat oven to 400 F.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and sugar. In a separate bowl, beat egg lightly, and mix with milk and oil. Form a well in the dry ingredients, and add the wet ingredients into the well. Mix with a spoon until just combined. Mix in the strawberries.
Spoon muffin batter into muffin tray containing large muffin papers. Fill ¾ of the way. Add approximately one teaspoon of cream cheese on the top of each muffin, pressing so that it lies level with the top of the batter.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out cleanly.
