Peaches and Cream Cheese Muffin

Peaches and Cream Cheese Muffin

Peaches and Cream Cheese muffin is a type of muffin flavoured with peach and filled with a soft and warm cream cheese in the middle, this one of my favourite muffin variety. I still remember my first time trying this muffin variety and it was here in New Zealand, it was so unforgettable as every bite was delicious specially the middle part where it is creamy and warm, too bad the one I had don’t have enough of that cream cheese goodness. So after that day I made sure I will buy the ingredients at the supermarket before I go home so that I can make one with lots of cream cheese in the middle.

    I never would have thought that cream cheese could go inside a muffin, but it appears to work fabulously!

    The muffins look beautiful and must be so good tasting. I can’t wait to try them. It’s nice to use canned peaches when fresh ones are out of season here in New England.

  13. Peaches and cream: is there really any cozier combination? Somehow it speaks of innocence and summertime and old-fashioned goodness no matter how it’s presented. And this is a sweet way of bringing them together, indeed. ๐Ÿ™‚
