INGREDIENTS

Streusel Topping

  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour

Cheesecake Filling

  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Muffin batter

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly spray a 12-count muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray or line with paper liners. Set aside

Streusel Topping

  • To prepare the crumb topping, add brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, melted butter, and flour to a medium bowl. Stir to thoroughly combine. Set aside.

Cheesecake Filling

  • To prepare cheesecake filling, in a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract with an electric hand mixer until light and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes. Set aside.

Muffin

  • In a medium bowl, stir muffin mix, water, vegetable oil, and eggs until just moistened. Gently fold in blueberries.
  • Spoon a small amount of batter into each muffin tin, just enough so that it covers the bottom of the liner. Then, take a heaping tablespoon of cream cheese filling and spread on top of muffin batter. Spoon the remaining muffin batter into each tin, filling about 2/3 full.
  • Sprinkle prepared streusel over the tops of each muffin tin.
  • Bake 20-22 minutes, or until muffins are golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes, then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Enjoy!
