Strawberries and Cream Muffins

Think of summer-time - strawberries and cream - not strawberry flavouring - but REAL strawberries.  This cake mix makes one big delicious round cake or the most scrumptious little strawberry muffins - so good for a summer picnic or even for breakfast on a Sunday morning.

Preheat your oven and prepare your muffin tray/cake tin then...

All you need is:

3/4 cup white sugar
4 Tbls. butter softened
1 egg
3/4 cup thickened (heavy) cream
2 cups plain (all purpose) flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups strawberries, sliced - I find one punnet is usually perfect

Simply mix everything together and then gently fold in the sliced strawberries.  The mixture is VERY thick.  Gently place in to your muffin / cupcake liners or into a lined round cake tin and bake in a moderate/slow oven until just lightly golden on the top.  Mmmmm, so good and so easy!
