Ingredients

Filling:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Muffins:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (250 grams)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened (115 grams)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (200 grams)
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Frozen of fresh blueberries amount will vary

Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, chopped (28 grams)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  • In a small mixing bowl, mix together the cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice; set aside.
  • Stir the flour, baking powder and salt together in a medium size bowl and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and creamy. Beat eggs, one by one, until batter is light and fluffy. Stir in the vanilla and lemon zest. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk and stir by hand until mixed. Do not over-beat.
  • Put a generously heaping tablespoon of batter in each muffin cup. Press a few frozen berries in the batter, then put a spoonful of cream cheese filling over the batter, using all the cream cheese filling and dividing evenly. Press another couple of berries into the cheese. Top with remaining muffin batter, dividing evenly among the cups.
  • In the same bowl you used for the muffin batter (or flour mixture), mix 2 tablespoons flour, 5 tablespoons sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Add 2 chopped up butter and mix with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over tops of muffins.
  • Bake the muffins for 28 to 30 minutes or until set and golden brown all over top. Let cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then carefully remove from pan and let cool completely.

Notes

Make sure to let the muffins cool before you attempt to remove them from the pan. They're kind of delicate while warm, and need that extra 10 minutes or so to set.
