Blueberry Cream Cheese Muffins

Although I love the snow and snow storms, all this gloom and muck has really been tough for me in terms of picture taking.  There is no natural light!  And when my little camera gets boosted into 800-1600 ISO range, I lose all clarity.

So please.  Forgive me in advance.

I need to figure out what my ‘winter’ options are.

Moving on.

I made these this weekend.

I am in love with them.  I ended up having about 18 muffins, and my little family of five ate them all by noon.

    That cute little muffin would taste mighty fine right now with my ceremonial first cup of coffee. Yum.

    Oh, Amanda!
    You’re speaking my language! If I can get my kids to do more chores just so they can eat more muffins – I will make a HUGE batch. *wink*

  • Andrea says:

    Oh my goodness, YUM! I wish I could eat that right now.
    I have never heard of that trick of coating the blueberries in flour! That’s really neat!

  • Jenny says:

    I made these for the kids’ school’s bake sale today. They were terrific! Thanks for the recipe!

  • Nicole @ Wonderful Joy Ahead says:

    I just want to double-check… there is supposed to be 3 tablespoons of baking powder, right? That just seems like a lot, and I don’t want to mess it up when I make them (hopefully this Thursday if you happen to respond to me by then!) 🙂

    • Jammie says:

      It is teaspoons, not tablespoons…..

  • Pinwheels says:

    Hi ladies!

    I stumbled across this recipe today and am itching to leave work this afternoon to try these!!

    I read through the recipe a few times but wondering when I put the blueberries in? Do I put them in the batter or the filling or in between the two?

    Thank you!

    • Amanda says:

      You can add the blueberries to the batter right before you are ready to bake. So, the last step. Sorry my recipe is a little off! 🙁

  • Pinwheels says:

    Hi Amanda,

    Thanks so much for your reply! Your recipe was perfect 🙂 I have a long way to go before I reach even a basic level lol.

    Can’t wait to try the recipe, looks wonderful!!

  • Julie says:

    I just put mine in the oven but the filling was SUPER runny. Each time I tried to spoon it into the batter, it would just spread across before I could top it with the rest of the batter 🙁 Is this how the filling is supposed to be?

    • Amanda says:

      No, its not supposed to be a watery consistency. It should be a pancake batter like consistency. 🙁 Sorry!

  • gabi says:

    Hi Amanda…
    Just to make sure….
    First I fill with the flour, sugar.. egg and milk mix. Than I add the cream cheese mix, and then… more flour mix? and then the blueberries???
    Sorry to ask you so many things… I’m not sure of understanding everything, and I don’t want to do it wrong…


  • Cathie Rakove says:

    Just made these. I had high hopes for these, but the cream cheese filling was very runny! So sad…

  • Heena Aswani says:

    Hi, how many muffins does this recipe make?

  • Olivia Douglass says:

    Can you update this recipe? I just followed it and the filling was runny, there are no instructions to add the blueberries and I am pretty sure I just wasted all of these ingredients 🙁

  • Celeste says:

    I made the mistake of using olive oil instead of vegetable oil and it turned out too wet. I even had to drain out some oil it was way too much. Soggy and flat. Use only regular vegetable oil!

  • Happy says:

    Pls can you make your recipe in too gream .I Don really like in cups

  • Tracy says:

    These are good! I followed the recipe to a “tee”. Putting in 1 tsp (measuring spoon) of the cream cheese I had enough for 2 batches, but it was not obvious, so next time I will double the filling and use it all up. Also I thought the batter was really sticky, which resulted in drier muffins the next day. Batch 2 was less sticky, so I will blame my ingredients, either way I will add more moisture next time. Everyone loved them! Both batches were gone the next day (took them to school for teacher appreciation).

    Where do you add the blueberry?
