How to make Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Muffins
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F. Into muffin pans, place the paper baking cups and set aside.
Step 2: Place the flour, pumpkin spice, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Mix well until blended and set aside.
Step 3: Combine the pumpkin, sugar, and brown sugar in a large bowl. Add the eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Mix well until combined. Then, gradually stir in the flour mixture until the lumps are gone.
Step 4: With the batter, fill the muffin tins 3/4 full.
Step 5: Beat the cream cheese in a medium bowl until smooth. Add the sugar along with the egg yolk and vanilla extract. Beat well until the ingredients are well incorporated.
Step 6: On top of each muffin, place about 1 tbsp of the cream cheese mixture and swirl into the batter using a toothpick.
Step 7: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffin comes out clean.
Step 8: Remove from the oven when done and allow the muffins to cool at room temperature or chill before serving. Store the muffins in the fridge in an airtight container.
