Made this recipe off hand because I couldn't find a good "mini-cheese cake" recipe. The mini-cheese cakes ended up more like muffins, less dense than traditional cheese cake. Taste similar to a danish.

How to Make Cheesecake Muffins

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cream room temperature cream cheese and sugar.
  • 2Add eggs and vanilla, beat well.
  • 3Slowly add cake flour, beating well after each addition.
  • 4Lightly grease the inside of the cupcake baking cups with cooking spray (this makes the final muffin pull out of the paper a lot easier).

  • 7Top each muffin with a maraschino cherry.
  • 8Cook until a fork comes out clean and edges are golden brown.
