Pumpkin + Cream Cheese = Yum. I love just about anything made with this combo! I was looking for a recipe to make for some breakfasts this week and pumpkin muffins sounded so good. But then I thought I needed to make them even better by adding a little cream cheese! Here's what I came up with in the end.
What you need:
2 c. flour
2/3 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. sucanat or white sugar
1 T. baking powder
1 t. salt
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. baking soda
1/2 c. melted butter
1/2 c. pumpkin puree
1/3 c. buttermilk
8oz. cream cheese
1/4 c. brown sugar
Mix together the flour, 2/3 c. brown sugar, and 1/3 c. sucanat or white sugar.
Add in the baking powder, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, and butter.
Then mix in the eggs and the pumpkin.
Set aside the first mixture. Then mix together one egg, the cream cheese, and the rest of the brown sugar.
Fill a greased muffin cup up halfway with the pumpkin mixture.
Then add a large spoonful of the cream cheese mixture on top.
Add another scoopful of the pumpkin mixture on top of the cream cheese mixture. bake at 350F for 22 minutes or until they are done.
