Mixed Berry Cream Cheese Muffins

These mixed berry muffins have an addition of a cream cheese centre.  It’s a true combination of red, white and blue!

I used raspberries and blue berries for the colour and the flavour.  Although I used fresh berries, frozen would have been fine too.  The combination of the sharp berries along with the vanilla flavoured cream cheese centre is just delicious and perfect for an afternoon tea.  Or breakfast should the mood take you!  You know I will never judge you! I’ve done worse…

As you make these colourful muffins you may want to add more berries if need be.  As you spoon the muffin mixture into the tin, you will need to move some of the berries around as you put the cream cheese centre mixture on top to avoid any lumps.     If you have any of the filling mixture put it aside and use it as a topping.  Or just eat it out of the bowl whilst the muffins bake in the oven.
