Lemon Cream Muffins

Lemon Cream Muffins

The finished product!

Once upon a time I used to share my recipes here. These Lemon Cream Muffins inspired me to start again. On the Sundays my twins are with me, I try to make breakfast for some yummy family time. The recipe for this morning’s breakfast came from Sweet Sugar Bean.

This was a pretty simple recipe, chopping the cream cheese and zesting the lemon were the most time consuming parts. The muffins turned out moist and were especially good served warm.
