This fun Strawberry Lemon Muffin recipe from Allrecipes reminded me of delicious, refreshing strawberry lemonade. But I spontaneously threw in a twist: cream cheese. I had some leftover Philadelphia Whipped Cream Cheese in the fridge and decided to drop a dollop of it in each muffin before it went into the oven!
The light lemon flavor in the muffin, the baked strawberries’ jam-like texture, and a bit of creamy rich cheese went really well together and turned into a delicious portable dessert/ breakfast. I usually think that cheesecakes are more cheese than cake which makes it too rich for me, but these little muffins are a bit more balanced.
Excited to try more recipes in anticipation of warm summer days, BBQs, and picnics!
