What could be better than starting the day with a sweet, fluffy muffin loaded with fresh, juicy strawberries and served with a strawberry cream cheese spread? Not much, I'd say!

Ingredients
  • ½ (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup diced fresh strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
Directions
  1. 1. Combine cream cheese, strawberries, and honey in a food processor; pulse until smooth. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate.
  2. 2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray 12 muffin cups with cooking spray or line with paper muffin liners.
  3. 3. Mix strawberries and 1 tablespoon sugar in a bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  4. 4. Stir flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Whisk eggs, milk, vegetable oil, and orange zest in a small bowl until well blended. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture, stirring until just combined.
  5. 5. Drain strawberries and gently fold into the batter. Divide the batter equally among the prepared muffin cups.
  6. 6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm or cooled with the strawberry cream cheese spread.
