Method

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line twelve 1/3 cup (80ml) muffin pan holes with paper cases.

  2. Step 2

    Place combined flour, muesli or granola and sugar in a bowl. Stir to combine. Whisk egg, buttermilk and oil in a jug. Add to the flour mixture with the strawberry and gently stir until just combined (don’t overmix). Spoon evenly among the paper cases.
  3. Step 3

    Bake for 20-25 mins or until a skewer inserted into the centres comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 5 mins to cool slightly before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Step 4

    Meanwhile, to make the strawberry cream cheese icing, combine the strawberry and sugar in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-7 mins or until the strawberry softens and mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat. Use a fork to mash until smooth. Set aside to cool.
  5. Step 5

    Use an electric mixer to beat cream cheese and butter in a bowl until pale and creamy. Gradually add icing sugar, in batches, beating well after each addition. Add strawberry mixture. Beat to combine. Spread evenly over muffins.
