Hello lovely people!
How was your Easter? I trust that you made delicious a spread for your dinner or lunch. Went to church, maybe did an easter hunt and all that good stuff. The monster is no longer into easter hunts, thank god! Thats one less holiday I need to care about. So we now have eliminated Easter and Halloween…excitedly waiting for her to not want Christmas gifts anymore. Ha!
I am continuing with dessert. It seems the only time I want to eat dessert is when I am fasting. I rarely eat sweet stuff, but lately I feel like I must have something sweet in the night. These Strawberry Cream Cheese Muffins are just what I need. When I tell you these taste better the next day I am not kidding you. I made these on a whim, just trying to test out the ratios.
When it first came out of the oven, of course I immediately ate one, I mean I needed to test it an all that. It was so soft, I thought for sure it failed. But the next day after allowing it to cool in the fridge…oh boy was it perfect. It was soft, moist and the strawberry jam just put it over the top.
Kind of like a sweet and tart balance. If you are using fresh strawberries, please chop it before, otherwise it takes a lot longer to become jam-like. I used frozen and it was perfectly fine whole.
I thought about adding a sprig of mint to the jam, but did not in the end. If you happen to make it and do add mint, let me know how that comes out. I imagine it would give it a bit of freshness…
