Strawberries and Cream Muffins!!

I obviously didn't put any cream on top of mine usually as they get eaten out of the oven it's easier to just cut it in half throw some cream in the middle to melt a little. 

I had thought perhaps one could fill the middle with cream, but what a waste of time if they are just going to get eaten right away? 

Oh, when I added the strawberries to coat I also added a half of cup of white chocolate chips. It made them extremely rich! 

These are my family's favorite! They never last long in our house!!

6 whole strawberries (to decorate if you’d like too)

Heat oven to 200*C/400*F/ gas 6, line your muffin tin(s)
Sift flour and baking powder. Add sugar then mix strawberries in to coat.
Beat eggs, oil, milk and vanilla in a separate bowl.
Add wet mixture to dry and stir for 10-15 strokes (don’t over mix)
Fill paper cases bake for 20mins and then cool. (I find that my oven is hotter in the back and after about 10-15 minutes I flip my tin around otherwise the ones in the back get a little brown)
