Strawberry Cream Dream Muffins



  • 6 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (about) white chocolate chips

Muffin Batter

  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 4 Tbsp. butter, melted but cooled
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries, chopped into 1/4 inch dice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract


  • 4 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/8 cup pureed fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line mini-muffin tins with paper muffin cups.

To make filling, whip the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add 1 egg and vanilla extract, beating only until combined. Set aside.

To make muffin batter, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine melted butter, vegetable oil, milk, strawberries, eggs, and vanilla extract. Stir strawberry mixture into flour mixture, mixing only until combined.


Fill muffin cups 1/3 full with batter. Spoon in about 1 teaspoon of cream cheese filling. Drop 3 white chocolate chips into each muffin cup. Top with more muffin batter until cups are 3/4 full.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes (see note) until edges of mini-muffins are lightly browned. Cool on racks to room temperature before frosting.

For frosting, whip cream cheese until smooth. Add strawberry puree, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla extract; blend until smooth. Frost muffins. Refrigerate to set frosting. Remove from refrigerator 20 minutes before serving.

Note: For regular-sized muffins, bake 30 to 35 minutes.
