A wonderful muffin with a surprising filling of cream cheese! Yum! A great way to use pumpkin. I've changed it a little and added my own cream cheese icing.

Ingredients:

Filling:

  • (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar

Muffin:

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup oil

Icing

  • 1 (250 g) package Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice

Directions:

For the filling, in a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, egg and sugar until smooth; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt. Beat the eggs, sugar, pumpkin and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Divide half of the batter among 24 greased or paper-lined muffin cups. Drop filling by teaspoonfuls over batter. Top with remaining batter.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire rack.

To make icing, mix one package of softened cream cheese with melted butter and 2 cups of icing sugar until smooth. Add one teaspoon of lemon juice. Frost cupcakes after they have cooled.

Are these muffins or cupcakes? The title says muffins but the directions for the icing says cupcakes.
