The surprise in these muffins is carrot. It makes the muffins sweet and moist. I usually add ½ cup chopped nuts also.
Whisking the batter, rather than stirring makes this cornbread lighter. The batter is spooned into muffin tins to make handy individual portions. Leftovers can be bagged in freezer-weight plastic bags and frozen. This specialty is served at Southern Hands Family Dining in Collierville, Tennessee
Although consuming a whole cheesecake in a sitting or two is no impossible for my family sometimes just a bite or two would be perfect. These mini cheesecake muffins can be ready to serve in just a couple of hours. Love 'n Bake flavors the batter with their Almond Schmear to contrast the tart cream cheese.
Serve these muffins with butter and honey. They are delicious for breakfast or with fried chicken.
