Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Muffins: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

What really drew me to these muffins was the swirl. I just love how pretty they look. Besides being pretty they also are pretty delicious. A spiced pumpkin muffins with a creamy and sweet cream cheese swirl on top.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Muffins
Ingredients:

Pumpkin Muffin
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon pumpkin spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
15 ounce can pumpkin puree
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Cream Cheese Swirl
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375º F. Place baking cups in a muffin tin or grease the muffin tin.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, pumpkin spice and baking soda until well combined.

In a large bowl whisk together the pumpkin and both sugars. Whisk in the eggs, canola oil and vanilla extract. Slowly whisk in the flour mixture until no lumps remain. Fill muffin tins about 3/4 full with batter. Be careful not to overfill, because you will need room for the cream cheese and to swirl it.

In a medium bowl beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add in the sugar, egg yolk and vanilla extract. Beat until the mixture is well combined and smooth.

Top each muffin with about 1 tablespoon of cream cheese mixture and use a toothpick to swirl it into the batter. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Store the muffins in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Enjoy!!!
