Strawberry Cheesecake Muffin

I do not have enough good things to say about this muffin. It is amazing.  Although it is a little more complicated than scooping batter into a muffin tin, it is well worth it.  Recipe and photo courtesy of raininghotcoupons.com.

Muffin:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups chopped strawberries

Filling:

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 beaten egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Topping:

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter

Preheat the oven to 400.  Grease or line twelve cup muffin pan.  Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl and set aside. Beat together the milk, oil, egg, and vanilla in another bowl.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just combined.  Do not over mix.  Next, cream together the cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth.  Then cut the butter into the dry ingredients until crumbly.  To assemble the muffins, first put 1 tablepoon of batter on bottom, then couple pieces of strawberry, then 1/2 a tablespoon of filling, then 1/2 a tablespoon of topping. Put more batter on top, then another strawberry and a sprinkling of topping.  I had extra batter so I used 3 ramekins for the rest of the recipe, layering just like before.  Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
