Guest Post: Jane's Blueberry And Cream Cheese Muffins

 Continuing along in the twin themes of "things about food that other people write" and "friends who are kind enough to write things for me so I can spend some time not writing", it's my pleasure to introduce you to Jane. If you've been around here for any length of time, you'll know her from the comments section (just like WilliamB). 

You should also get to know her from her blog {AdventuresinDinner}, where she is delicious and funny...erm, her food is delicious and she is funny. And stylish.

Hey there, I'm Jane from {AdventuresinDinner} and it's an honour to step into the Mrs' shoes. I know everyone reading this thinks that she is just the bomb too and are so happy to see the appearance of baby bean.

Apparently I've got a real thing for blueberry muffins this winter since this is my third time round.  I think these are my total favourite though so I've saved the recipe for the Mrs.

Blueberry and Cream Cheese Muffins

Cream together: 1 1/2 cups sugar, 10 T. butter, 1/2 cup cream cheese and 2 eggs.
Add 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp baking powder and 2 cups flour.
At the same time add: 1 cup sourcream and 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla.

Fold in 3 cups of frozen blueberries.

Top the batter with a mixture of: 1 cup walnuts, 1/3 cup sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until a knife comes out cleanly.

Have a nice warm muffin and toast the Mrs. and her lovely family with a cup of your favourite beverage.
