Hi there everyone!~
Please give a warm welcome to
Ann will be sharing a delicious recipe here once a month and it surely will tickle your palate.
I just drool over her recipes, and I know for certain if we lived closer, I would be a few pounds heavier.
Ann and I met some time ago,
in fact it was at the start of my newbie party a few years back.
She was new to blogging and stumbled across my blog, and was one of the weekly newbies participants that never missed joining in.
Needless to say we have been friends ever since and I find Ann to be a pleasure, and full of artist talents.
She can sew too,
I can’t..hence, she is my hero:)
Now onto the recipe and at the end I will leave you with her Etsy and blog link for you to check out some more.
One of the best things about the month of May is that here in the Midwest, it’s strawberry season.
There is nothing better than fresh, homegrown strawberries. Combine them with cream cheese and all I can say is YUMMO! This recipe for Strawberry Cream Cheese Muffins is simple and packed full of flavor.
- ¼ c. flour
- ¼ c. sugar
- 1 t. cinnamon
- 2 T. butter softened
- 2 c. flour
- ½ c. sugar
- 2 t. baking powder
- ½ t. salt
- 1 egg
- ¼ c. canola oil
- 1 c. whole milk
- 1 t. vanilla
- 1 qt. strawberries, cleaned and diced
- 4 oz. cream cheese softened
- ⅓ c. sugar
- 2 T. beaten egg
- 1 t. vanilla
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Prepare muffin pan.
- For the topping: combine first four ingredients with a fork. Set aside.
- For the muffins: In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
- In a smaller bowl combine the egg, oil, milk and vanilla.
- Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
- Pour the egg mixture in the well. Stir just until mixed.
- For the cream cheese mixture: In the bowl of a standing mixer combine cream cheese and sugar until fluffy (2 minutes.)
- Add the egg and vanilla until mixed well.
- Fill each muffin cup with a scoop of muffin batter.
- Pour cream cheese mixture into a gallon size ziploc bag. Smoosh into a corner and snip the end. Squirt cream cheese mixture into center of muffin batter.
- Top each muffin with strawberries and streusel mixture.
- Bake 20 – 25 min. until a pick inserted in the middle comes out clean..
The original recipe I found gave instructions for layering the muffin batter, cream cheese, strawberries and topping. I thought that was a lot of trouble so I simplified the process by just squirting the cream cheese right into the batter.
I shared this batch of muffins with my neighbor and my daughter. I got a thumbs up from both of them!
I’d like to thank Debbie for having me as her guest today.
She was one of the first bloggers I “met” when I started my blog.
She has been a constant source of encouragement, inspiration and is a blast to have as a friend.
I’ll be back next month with another recipe to share with you. Until then, enjoy those strawberries!

What a great recipe! The muffins looks so good! Love Ann’s blog!
These look SO good! Perfect for strawberry season!! YUM!
Yum Yum Yum!!!!!
Just finished making these. Am so disappointed. Muffins are hollow and has a raw texture. Where did I go wrong?? Can someone advise?? Mine looks nothing like the pic in recipe. Also it’s not even coming away from the liner.
Chandra, this was a recipe from Ann on Sutton place. Not sure how I can tell you where you went wrong. If you followed the step by step directions. I’m sorry. If you want to contact Ann and ask her, I am sure she can perhaps answer your questions.
Ann this recipe sounds devine, nothing like strawberries and cream cheese. I will be trying this one for sure. Love Ann’s blog and she is such a talent and her recipes always catch my eye and my tummy!

man, ann always has the BEST recipes! yummy!
These are delicious muffins! They made the whole house smell so good and they are yummy!
I was just wondering, because Strawberries are hard to find in my area…could you substitute fresh strawberries for strawberry jam, and how much would you need to add?
I forwarded your message to Ann:)
I will be making these today with my son, will let you know how they turn out.
So I made the muffins yesterday they came out great, I added a little almond extract gave it a nice flavor. I love that these weren’t too sweet. Will be making these for a very long time thanks.
Oh that is wonderful! I will let Ann know you tried them and enjoyed.
I just made these..but with my own little twist.. I folded strawberries into the muffin mixture and cream cheese mixture and came out really good. Super moist.. I just watched it while cooking.. But these are delicious!!
