Cheery (Cherry) Cheesecake muffins


Today’s recipe comes to us from Caitlin in Toronto, a loyal iRun fan and hilarious Tweeter (Tweep? Twitterer?). She sent in this recipe over the weekend called “Cheery cheesecake muffins”. I know that’s probably a typo but I really prefer the sound of that to “Cherry cheesecake muffins”. In any case, these sound just delicious.


150g butter

1 250g pkg cream cheese

3/4 cup sugar

3 large eggs, lightly beaten

2 cups self-rising flour

1/2 cup (generous) dried cherries, chopped


1. Grease a deep 12-cup muffin pan
2. Melt the butter and let cool slightly. In a large bowl, whisk the cream cheese and sugar together, add the eggs one at a time until well combined, and then stir in the melted butter.
3. Mix the flour and cherries in a bowl, then stir gently into the batter. Spoon into the prepared muffin pan, filling each hole to about two-thirds full, and bake in a preheated oven, 350F/180C, for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack. Eat warm or cold.
