  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


1. Preparing for Baking Bliss: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease the cavities.

2. Flour Fusion: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

3. Creamy Beginning: In a separate bowl, cream together the softened unsalted butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

4. Eggstravaganza: Add the eggs to the butter-sugar mixture one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.

5. Dairy Duo: Mix in the sour cream and softened cream cheese until the mixture is well combined and smooth.

6. Flour and Strawberry Union: Gradually add the dry flour mixture to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Gently fold in the diced fresh strawberries


7. Creating the Streusel Crumb Topping: In a small bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, melted unsalted butter, and ground cinnamon. Mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

8. Muffin Magic: Spoon the muffin batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cavity about two-thirds full.

9. Streusel Enchantment: Generously sprinkle the prepared streusel crumb topping over the muffin batter in each cavity.

10. Baking Elegance: Bake the muffins in the preheated oven for about 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

11. Cooling and Savoring: Once baked, remove the muffins from the oven and let them cool in the muffin tin for a few minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

12. Delightful Devouring: Once the muffins are cooled, enjoy the perfect blend of sweetness, creaminess, and crunch with every bite.
