Cherry Cheesecake Muffins

Cherry Cheesecake Muffins created by alligirl

I found this in a muffin cookbook by Canadian Living. You can use different jams if you don't have cherry jam. They will freeze very well , just place in a zip lock bag or in an air tight container.

    Very disappointed in this recipe. I should have thinned the batter as it was way too thick and I followed the recipe exactly (except for the nuts). I will give it another shot and adjust the milk accordingly and see how that turns out.

    I just loved the flavor and texture of these muffins, even if I fixed them wrong. I should have used liners. While I was filling them 1/2 full, then that was all the batter. I thought if I added the cherry and cream cheese mixture, the cake would swallow the filling ingredients - not so. If I had used liners, the 1/2 way point would have been met earlier. So, the filling bubbled up and over, but no matter; the flavor shines through. Next time, (and there will be a next time) I will try to encompass the filling a little better! Thanks for sharing a great recipe, bigbadbrenda.
