These muffins also turned out too dense and bisquit-like when I made them. I wish the batter had been sweeter, but the filling was very yummy! We also had trouble with the muffins 'exploding' in the pan, and with the muffin cups being very sticky and hard to remove. If I made this recipe again I would consider mixing the cream cheese into the batter and filling them with a pocket of jelly!
Very lovely miffin and nice crumb. I did have to sub fresh rasberries for the jam, but I believe the jam would be tastier. I also liked the hint of lemon in the background. Thank you for posting! :)
My husband made these muffins for me for Mother's Day (at my request). They were yummy. He did mix the cream cheese with the jam before layering and if I make these, I will do the same. The only complaint we have is that many of the muffins exploded and you couldn't get the paper lining off of the muffins. But there was a good tast. Thanks for posting the recipe.
What I did like about these muffins is the amazing smell that fills the house when you cook them. But they did not turn out as I expected. I thought I was careful not to overbeat, but they still turned out too dense and bisquit like. And although I liked the filling (double the cream cheese mixture - there wasn't enough), I didn't enjoy the taste of the muffin part. My husband liked them more than I did. He might have given 4 stars.
Excellent muffins! I made the muffins as posted except I did not have any lemons so I left that out ~ didn't miss it. I did have a little problem with the jam and cream cheese running out of the muffin but otherwise it's an easy recipe. My house smelled wonderful while they were baking. Thanks so much for posting a recipe that is headed for my keeper cookbook!
