Preheat oven to 175°C and line a 12-cup standard muffin pan with baking cups; coat baking cups with cooking spray. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture.
Combine buttermilk, egg, honey, brown sugar, oil, vanilla, and lemon zest in a medium bowl; add to flour mixture and stir just until combined. Gently fold in blueberries.
This is so difficult mama... hehe
There... now its better....
Fill each baking cup with a rounded tablespoon of batter, then add 1 teaspoon whipped cream cheese. Top with another rounded tablespoon of batter (each baking cup will be 2/3 full) and sprinkle demerara sugar evenly over muffins. Bake for 15 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let muffins cool in pan on a wire rack for 2 minutes before removing from pan to serve warm or cool completely. Store leftover muffins in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 days.
