Blueberry - Cream Cheese Muffins for Father's Day!

Morning peeps.. monday blues.. err not really.. we had a wonderful weekend.. was out on Sat and stayed home on Sunday except in the morning.. we were in litle india and it seems like they are gonna have some kinda food festival?? i love going there and no wonder u see lots of tourist there unlike the old malay village.. dont know why it didnt kick in.. too far maybe?? i dont think thats the reason.. i know for sure that if i am a tourist i wud like to visit all the important places in S'pore.. Anyway since its fathers day.. hubs had 'ordered' me not to spend too much time in the kitchen.. we had brekkie and bought briyani rice for dinner.. went to the wet market and guess what we saw?? Yabbies.. yep the tiny so called crayfish.. both of us were like.. OMG.. been awhile! the last time we had that was when we were in Adelaide.. oh i miss Adelaide huhu.. will hv Yabby for dinner tonight!

So it was fathers day yesterday.. wished my dad and thats it.. had wanted to go to dad's place but both hubs and sonia fell asleep while watching telly.. so the plan to go to parents place and also to get a few stuff for my baking pantry didnt happen.. Sonia and I later baked something for hubs.. nothing fancy .. just something simple that Sonia could handle.. hmm i dont even remember I baked something for my dad last year.. i know for sure i did the chocolate truffle cuppies in 2010.. same time last year we were in Malacca and this year Sonia baked something for hubs..

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.
