  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter cooled slightly
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk + more as needed

Topping and Filling:

Frosting: (See Notes)

  • 2 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 splash vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a standard 12 cup muffin pan; set aside.
  • Sift the dry ingredients together inside a large bowl. Whisk together the wet ingredients until well combined, in a separate medium-sized bowl.
  • Make a well in the center of the flour mixture for the wet ingredients.  Pour the egg mixture into the center of the well.  Stir together until just combined.
  • Combine all the topping and filling ingredients into a small bowl. Add half of the topping and filling mixture, by gently folding it into the muffin batter.
  • Using a scoop or spoon, add about ¼ cup of the muffin batter into each muffin cup. Sprinkle each with the remaining half of the topping and filling mixture. Bake until muffins are done and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted, about 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool about 5 minutes. Transfer carefully to a wire rack and allow them to cool completely.
  • When the muffins have cooled, whisk together the frosting ingredients and spoon over the muffins and serve.


Instead of using a sugar glaze you could also use caramel sauce. Get a delicious recipe for Caramel Sauce HERE!
