Cream Cheese Muffins-a lightly flavored muffin with a delicious streusel topping.
I must be wanting to attend a brunch or something because I've made another recipe that is perfect for brunch. Cream Cheese Muffins are so mild and go perfectly with a fresh fruit or fruit salad and that's why I think they're great for brunch.
Cream Cheese Muffins, in my opinion, are not a stand alone muffin. Not that they can't be, but I think they're better when served with other items rather than blueberry muffins or chocolate muffins which can most definitely be served on their own.
I think I am putting too much effort into these muffins.I tend to over think things. Please excuse the muffin rambling.
On a recent grocery trip I saw a package of cream cheese muffins in the bakery. I felt like they were calling my name, but rather than buy those I went home and made my own. I added a streusel topping because it's hard to eat muffins without it because it takes the muffins up a notch!I made the muffins in the evening but had one for breakfast the next morning with sliced strawberries, blueberries and yogurt. It was a delicious!!
