Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, 1 cup granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt; blend well.
In a small bowl, whisk together the vanilla, eggs, and cream or half-and-half.
Add to the dry ingredients along with the melted butter and stir just until combined.
Fold in the strawberries. Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full.
Combine the topping ingredients, using a fork, pastry blender, or fingers, working until the mixture is crumbly.
Sprinkle the top of each muffin with a generous amount of crumb topping.

Serve and enjoy!
Tips for Great Muffins
- Preheat the oven and put the muffins in to bake as soon as you have the muffin cups filled.
- Mix muffin batter just until ingredients are moistened.
- Don't fill the muffin cups more than 3/4 full.
- Use a toothpick to test muffins for doneness. The toothpick will come out clean when the muffins are done.
- Fruity muffins might be more prone to sticking in places. Run a knife or small metal spatula around the sides of each muffin to loosen.
- Cool muffins completely on a rack.
- To reheat, wrap muffins in foil and put in a preheated 325° oven for about 10 minutes.
