Cream cheese mixture

  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup strawberries chopped in small pieces


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease or Line muffin tins with paper liners.

Cream cheese

  • Combine the cream cheese, 1/3 cup sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla in a medium mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until well combined and smooth. Set aside.


  • Combine the flour, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
  • In another bowl combine the milk, melted butter, egg, and vanilla, whisk together.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture and fold together until combined. Do not over mix.
  • Add the chopped strawberries and fold them in.
  • Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the muffin mixture in the prepared muffin tins
  • Top with about 1 1/2 teaspoons of the cream cheese filling. Spoon about another tablespoon over top of the cream cheese filling. Spread over the cream cheese filling. The tins should be 2/3 to 3/4 full.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until the edges of the muffins start to brown and the muffin spring when you lightly touch them.


  1. Wash, dry, and remove the tops of the strawberries. Chop them into small pieces. This will help so that they don't sink to the bottom of the muffins.
  2. Don't overmix the batter. 
  3. Beat the cream cheese filling with an electric mixer for a smoother filling. 
  4. The muffins can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
