Are you KIDDING me with these??? These are THE BEST muffins we've EVER made! Seriously. And the amount of sugar in them is perfect - more sugar would ruin them, in my opinion. Hubs cut strawberries in half and placed a half on top of each muffin before sticking them in the oven. Best birthday breakfast ever!! Thanks so much for posting. We will make these over and over.
I made these into 1 loaf of bread because it is so much easier for DH to take to work as bread than muffins. I put half the batter in the pan, then layered in the cream cheese cubes and topped with remaining batter. I added 1/4 c brown sugar to the batter for a sweeter bread and found this to be wonderful!
Simply delicious! Once I'd found a website to help me convert from US cups to UK metric weights, this recipe gave us perfect, light, tasty, crisp on the outside, soft muffins. Rolling the cream cheese in sugar is a bit of a faff, but so worth it and I cut the strawberries too small the first time I made this. I might even try adding some freeze-dried strawberry pieces next time. The muffins are also delicious when reheated from frozen. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
These are decadent special occasion muffins! Or everyday, if you stay at home! ;-) Mine turned out beautifully, following the directions as written! You ARE the Muffin Goddess! :D Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
These turned out pretty good. I agree that they need more sugar, probably more like 1 1/2 cups, but that might be because the strawberries themselves are not very sweet this time of year in Pennsylvania. I also think that the strawberry pieces probably could be upped to 2-3 cups. Thanks so much for a yummy breakfast for dinner tonight! Made for Spring 2013 PAC.
came pretty good. I would add a bit more sugar to muffins. family said it was fine the way it was.
Tell me.... What in the world was I thinking to only make half of this recipe? Just because there are only 2 of us doesn't mean that we wouldn't be able to take down 12 of these easily. We ate 4 in only 6 min. That leaves us only 2! Delicious- Very tender and I enjoyed the cream cheese surprise that sunk down into the muffin. I forgot to mix the strawberries with the flour first which I think would have helped suspend them in the batter, but it surely didn't have any impact on the flavor because they were soooo good!
