Cheesecake Muffins

One recipe that makes (depending on what extras you add) ...Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins, Lemon Cheesecake Muffins, Raspberry & White Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins... Whatever flavour you can think up! Now you know why this is my most favourite Muffin recipe!

For the Muffin mix you will need...
125g unsalted butter, softened
250g cream cheese
330g caster sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
300g self-raising flour, sifted
1 punnet of sliced strawberries, or zest of one lemon, or choc chips, Blueberries, Raspberries, jersey caramels, bananas, pie apple... use your imagination! 

Preheat the oven to 180c and line muffin pan with paper cases.

Place the butter, cream cheese and caster sugar in a bowl and beat with electric beaters until pale. Add eggs one at a time beating after each addition. Add the vanilla and then fold in the sifted flour. At this point mix in whatever flavourings you want being careful not to over mix.

Spoon into muffin cases and bake in the oven 20-30 mins or until golden. Cool before serving with cheesecake cream!
And for the cheesecake cream you will need:
    150g cream cheese
    1/3 cup icing sugar, sifted
    1/2 cup thickened cream
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract

    Strawberry and White Chocolate Cheesecake Muffin
    Strawberry Cheesecake Muffin
    Lemon Cheesecake Muffin

    Place all ingredients into a bowl and beat until thick and creamy! Refridgerate until ready to serve. Decorate as desired!
