  • 350g/12oz Plain Flour
  • 11/2 tbsp Baking Powder
  • 140g/5oz Caster Sugar
  • Finely grated rind of 2 medium oranges
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 250ml/9fl oz Milk
  • 85g/3oz Butter, melted
  • For the Filling
  • 175g/6oz half-fat soft cheese
  • 3 tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 6 small strawberries, halved


    1. Preheat the oven to 200oc/Gas 6/fan oven 180oc. Line a muffin tin with 12 paper cases. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl, then stir in the sugar, ornage rind and salt. Beat the eggs and milk together in a jug or bowl, then stir in the butter and gently mix into the dry ingredients to make a loose, slightly lumpy mixture. Do not overmix or the muffins will be tough.
    2. Mix together the soft cheese and sugar for the filling. Half-fill the paper cases with the muffin mixture, then push half a strawberry into each. Top with a teaspoon of sweet cheese, then spoon over the remaining muffin mixture to cover and fill the muffin cases.
    3. Bake for 15 minutes until well risen and golden on top. Remove from the tin and allow to cool completely on a wire rack.

I've just made these the texture is lovely but the children say they are not very sweet are they meant to be ? Or are they a more citrus recipe? Thanks

These are the best muffins I've ever made. Universal crowd pleaser!! Had several requests to make batches for various friends after the first time I made them - just as well they're easy to make too! Definitely in my top few recipes.
