These muffins started off being an experiment. I had no clue what I was going to make. All I know is that I wanted some sort of cream cheese muffins. Next thing I know these tasty treats were comming out of the oven. These muffins are not very pretty, but they are pretty good. I think a nice simple sugar or fruit drizzle on them would make them that much better. What do you think? They are really fast and easy to make! Hope you guys enjoy then as much as I did!
