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.
