My kids have declared these "phenomenal!" The muffins are good in their own right but the spread gives them an incredible extra dimension. Please note, it is a cream cheese spread and not a sweet icing. The chocolate chips will not change form much. Perfect with a big, cold glass of milk or cup of coffee!
A slightly modified recipe from 'More muffin magic', a lovely little book that a friend of mine brought me a few years ago from Australia; I made them this morning for my mom, who's in bed for a bad flu, and though she hasn't eaten much these days, she had three of these in a row...
This is my adopted recipe Feb 2005. These are absolutely delicious!!!!I changed the recipe a bit, I used 1 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract as suggested. I used 1/2 cup of sour cream and 1/2 cup skim milk instead of the half and half.
I used 2 cups raspberries and decreased the sugar to 3/4 cup
Something a little different and soooo goood!!! Serve with any meat and veg for dinner or makes a very good addition to a brunch table or serve for breakfast with bacon and eggs. from Canadian Living mag.
A delicious savory muffin - great for breakfast on the go, or serve with soup or salad. You can also substitute minced ham for the bacon, if you like. Note to World Tour participants - this recipe is typical of the fresh cheese and farm fresh ingredients found in Wisconsin - the MidWestern U.S. region.
Bananas are my favorite fruit. I also love the sweetness of a daiquiri, so when I found this recipe (heaven only knows where), I thought they were wonderful! If you're not a Rum-Runner (FFF reference), feel free to sub in a few drops of rum extract to taste.
