Cream Cheese and Lemon Muffins

It’s a double dessert day at the South Arm Cooking Club for Seniors. Michelle also prepared a Cream Cheese and Lemon Muffins in her mission to use up the cream cheese in stock.


I really enjoyed these Cream Cheese and Lemon Muffins. It is moist, lemony and there are chunks of cream cheese in it.

  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

      Hi Ariel, I have not hear anything from any of the program coordinators regarding the community kitchens yet. Hope they are not affected. Thanks for asking.
