“Fluffy blueberry cream cheese muffins full of over 1/2 lb of fresh blueberries !”
Watch me make these blueberry cream cheese muffins from start to finish!
Gosh, I freakin LOVE Spring! With all of this fresh produce jumping off I just want to make EVERYTHING!!! I got a HUGE box of blueberries the other day and I’ve been having a blast playing around with all of these blueberry recipes! OMG have you ever had blueberry butter? So good!! I’ll get around to posting it here soon because it is definitely a lift your skirt recipe.
Today I’ve got these delicious blueberry cream cheese muffins for ya! Blaze up that coffee pot because these muffins are the perfect companion! I always turn to breakfast muffins when I need a quick item to take to a breakfast or brunch. They are so easy to make and are generally a crowd pleaser when made right!
Nothing worst than a dry crumbly muffin know whatum sayin’? These blueberry cream cheese muffins bake up so fluffy, moist and tender! Thank you buttermilk! It’s so hard to stop at one when they are piping hot & fresh from the oven. They are so light it almost feels like they don’t have a calorie in the world! If only that were true. *sigh* Darn you cream cheese for being so good and so naughty at the same time!
But honey let me tell ya, anytime you decide to put cream cheese directly into a muffin batter…only good things can happen! PERIOD! The cream cheese gives these blueberry muffins an AMAZING texture! Geez just typing up this post is making me want to make my third batch and think I’ll do just that! Only this time I’m gonna add in some fresh strawberries as well!
