  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat the eggs, milk and butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the blueberries. Spoon about 2 round tablespoonfuls into greased muffin cups.
  2. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, egg, sugar and salt; place about 1 tablespoon in the center of each muffin cup (do not spread). Top with remaining batter.
  3. Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in muffin comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Yield: 2 dozen.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

"5 stars! The stars were not above to rate the recipe! My kids thought these were the best! Made it just as written. 6 t. of baking powder was just fine especially with 4 c. flour. I made a mistake when I measured the butter and put in 1 1/2 c. so ended up having to triple the recipe to save it! WOW! 12 c. flour, 18 t. baking powder, etc. I put dried cranberries in some, chocolate and caramel chips in some, cherry chips in some, and dark chocolate and macadamia in some after using up my blueberries. Most of these will go into the freezer to pull out as needed. My family loves to have a muffin for breakfast!"

"I've made these a couple times and used canned peaches once (draining the syrup and rinsing them off). Both turned out great. Don't be afraid of the 6 teaspoons of baking powder, that's what I used and they came out fine every time."

"After talking with several good bakers, all agreed 6 teaspoons was WAY to much. I had to throw some away and add vegetable oil to the rest of the batter to save it."
