Blueberry Cream Cheese Muffins

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

These blueberry cream cheese muffins give a great pop of flavour with a delicious creamy centre. They freeze well, perfect to make when you have friends visiting for morning tea.

These delicious muffins are easy to make and so yummy! When blueberries are in season, you can use fresh blueberries but otherwise frozen works just as well. The cream cheese adds a creamy flavour – a bit like a scone with jam and cream.

These silicone muffin trays are my favourite, so easy to get muffins out, no need for patty cases, which is less waste and saves money!
