Strawberry Cream Cheese Breakfast Buns
Bun1 3/4 a.p. flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound (one 8 oz package)
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup of sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Topping1/2 cup strawberry preserves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and lightly flour 9 bun pans or large muffin cups.
In a large bowl, on the medium speed of an electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese, butter, and sugar until smooth about 3 minutes. Add the eggs and beat well. Add the dry ingredients in two parts, alternating with the milk and vanilla. Spoon the batter into the bun pans or muffin cups, filling them about 2/3 full. Drop 3 small dollops of strawberry preserves into the batter, forming a decorative batter. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the center of the bun comes out clean. Serve once cooled.
