What’s the Filling In These Blueberries and Cream Muffins?

The “cream’ part of these Blueberry Muffins is a sweet cream cheese filling a lot like cheesecake! It is rich, and smooth, and pairs PERFECTLY with the blueberries. Plus, it’s a simple filling to incorporate in this recipe, as well as most muffin or cupcake recipes!

Don’t Forget the Crumb Topping!

Ok, sure you CAN make these without the crumb topping (aka streusel), but who doesn’t love a crunchy, sweet crumb? The textures of this muffin is so great because you have the softness of the cake, the creaminess of the filling, and the crunchy topping. It’s pretty perfect!

How To Store Blueberry Muffins:

If you are eating these right away don’t worry abut storing them! But if you want to save some for the next day, I recommend refrigerating them due to the cream cheese in the center!

How To Freeze:

These Blueberries and Cream Muffins also freeze beautifully. Just freeze them airtight for up to 30 days (for best freshness) and allow them to thaw in the refrigerator or at room temperature. You can also reheat them if you would like in the microwave for just a few seconds!

Made these today, and they were a huge hit with the family and friends. A couple of observations: 1.
