Ingredients

  • 1/2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar

Steps

  1. 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Oil bottoms only of medium muffin tins.
  2. 2Mix together cream cheese, 1/4 cup white sugar, lemon peel, vanilla, and 1 egg with an electric mixer. Set filling aside.
  3. 3In a large bowl, mix together flour, 1/3 cup white sugar, baking powder, and salt until well blended. Beat remaining egg, and stir in milk and oil; pour into flour mixture, and stir until moistened. Fill muffin cups about 1/2 full. Spoon 1 teaspoon filling onto batter. Top with batter to 3/4 full.
  4. 4Bake 30 to 35 minutes. Don't brown these; muffins should be light in color. Roll while still hot in sifted confectioners' sugar.
