    Red Velvet Cream Cheese Muffins

    Yum
    2 red velvet muffin

    I love making muffins, and I love red velvet even more. So this recipe is a win win for me. Plus, the crumble on top of the muffins is like the ultimate icing on the cake! Oh, the irony. The muffin turned out to be moist and fluffy, a delightful contrast to the crumbly cookie crumbles atop each muffin. The luscious cream cheese dollop in the middle of the muffin makes it so decadent, with the slight tanginess off-setting the sweetness of the muffin.

    To me, muffins are like cupcakes without all that fuss. I actually prefer it to cupcakes as I’m not absolutely fond of buttercream. Not that I dislike it; I can just do without it. Although this recipe takes a little more work as compared to my other muffin recipes, the efforts are well worth it.

    9. Swirl with tooth pick.
