These are bakery-quality muffins, the directions slightly differ from the regular method which is what sets these apart and the method that many bakeries use to make their muffins, the butter is mixed with the flour firstly to create a lighter-textured baked muffin, you may omit the berries and add in whatever you desire, chocolate chips, dried fruit etc, if using strawberries choose red very firm berries using soft berries will create a soft sticky dough --- these may be made up to 2 days ahead and stored in an airtight container at room temperature, rewarm in a 275°F oven for about 8 minutes --- see my recipe#78579 for greasing pans :)
When our first daughter was born, a friend brought us a pail of these delicious muffins. It was such a thoughful gesture and perfect to snack on during that first couple days at home. Whenever I make these now I can still "taste" those first new days of motherhood. Thank you Erna!
My kids have declared these "phenomenal!" The muffins are good in their own right but the spread gives them an incredible extra dimension. Please note, it is a cream cheese spread and not a sweet icing. The chocolate chips will not change form much. Perfect with a big, cold glass of milk or cup of coffee!
You'll think you hit the jackpot when you take a bite of these babies.

Donner (Kitchner, Ontario). Prep time does not include time to grate carrots.
I got this recipe from a Weight Watcher's meeting, and found these very tasty. This recipe is low in fat and calories. I also tried 1 box of cake mix with a cherry lite pie topping - very tasty. My kids loved both muffins. (for Weight Watchers: each muffin is only 2 points.)
I got this recipe from a friend. I make these often and take them to many potlucks, office parties, the cottage, picnics, children's lunch and the list goes on. Recipe from the cookbook "Just The Best."
These cranberry-studded muffins make an easy breakfast or dessert. They freeze well, so bake up a batch and keep them on hand. Recipe is from Carole Walter's "Great Coffee Cakes, Sticky Buns, Muffins & More."
