Taking the tip from another reviewer, I mixed the cream cheese with a little sugar. I still didn't care at all for the cream cheese in these - the rest of the muffin, however, was insanely good! Very dense yet really moist, and with a really good texture. The topping is great, too. I will keep this recipe and make it again, without the cream cheese filling.
These muffins were very good. When i bit into the muffin all of this steam came out-Yummy!! I made a half recipe and used apple sauce instead of oil. The topping sure makes the muffins the best! This muffin will be perfect in the winter time on cold mornings. Thanks for the recipe!
These were good...the only thing that I was suprised I didn't really care for was the cream cheese. It seemed like it just didn't go to me. Next time I think I will mix the cream cheese with a little sugar or something to sweeten it up. Thanks for the recipe Bec!!
