Strawberry Mini Muffins

A girls weekend away requires mini muffins. No arguments about that from this peanut gallery. I believe these will do the trick ;-)

Happy Birthday Tessa =)

Strawberry Mini Muffins

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Zest and juice from one lemon
1 1/4 cup chopped strawberries

Crumb Topping
1/3 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons chilled butter, diced
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease muffin tin (or line with paper liners)
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Using a stand mixer with paddle attachment, cream together butter, cream cheese, and sugar.
  4. Add in milk, eggs, vanilla, lemon juice and zest until combined.
  5. Stir in the flour mixture until combined, then fold in the strawberries.
  6. In a small food processor combine all the crumb topping ingredients and pulse until the mixture has a coarse crumb texture.
  7. Fill the muffin tins a little more than 1/2 full of batter then sprinkle on crumb topping (in total should not be more than 3/4 full) and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
These turned out a bit more moist than I had intended, and the "crumb" topping was more like a cobbler or crisp topping rather than super "crumbly"...there were no complaints from the girls though, so I'm going to say this was a win ;-)
