I have been really bad and not posting recipes!! tut tut I’m a bit naughty.
This was one of the recipes I have been delaying.
I made these for my mum, I’m not sure why or what reason, I think maybe it was for mothers day? or am I talking a load of rubbish! who knows>>>?
As you might or may not know my mum is a big fan of all things strawberry and lemon, this recipe sounded so yummy I have made apple strudel muffins and they were yummy but these muffins with the addition of cream cheese to make a strawberry cheesecake muffin sounded extra yummy! I think it would impress my mum.
Head over to damn delicious to get the step by step photos of this recipe.

- finally add the crumble topping! Phew!

- I found the muffins lacked a lot of sugar!, they just wasn't sweet enough for me next time I would add another 1/4 - 1/2 cup of sugar.
