Cherry and cream cheese muffins

You know that if you click all photos in this site , you can drool more ?! lol 

Thank you , Foodporn ! ^___^

So , I still have some cream cheese that's getting moldier each day ....

I think I should buy just 1 pack instead of a kilo ...

But then a kilo is way cheaper than just an 8 oz package ....

Who could resist such a bargain ?!


And then there are loads of luscious cherries at the wet market ....

If I thought last time that cherries couldn't get any cheaper ...

$30 for 2 pounds ! 3 days before that I bought 2 pounds for just $25 ......


Oh Yeah !!! lol

My stomach is really quiet happy right now ...

All those luscious cherries .....

Buuuurp !

I'm thinking of freezing some cherries for next year , hello ! cherry ice cream - but it's too time-consuming to remove the pits pffftttt !

Uhm I kept popping the pitted cherries in my mouth ! lol

I saw this recipe from Lena's  blog and what could be better than cherries and cream cheese in a muffin ?!

Check out Lena's blog for recipe so as the full recipe @ BBC Goodfood

***** The original recipe used cranberries ..... I didn't cook the cherries , I added the sliced cherries to the muffin mixture ...... I just used 115 gram of caster sugar - the 15 grams added to the cream cheese .....I used 55 ml of sunflower oil .

  2. WOW you still got cherries! Our cherry season has long been gone, 3months ago. Too bad can't bake your cherry cream cheese muffin..and there's no cream cheese here either!! So, 'just drool' is enough for now:)

  3. Lovely muffins with lots of cherry. Cherries here are quite expensive and I also love to stock them in the freezer when they are at great offer.

  8. Great way to use your cream cheese! I hate that too. I think "well it's such a good deal.." but end up using half. These look SO good, I think I'd eat them all :p
