Ingredients

  • ½ (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest

  • teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 eggs

  • ¾ cup milk

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • cup white sugar

  • 3 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ cup confectioners' sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Oil bottoms only of medium muffin tins.

  2. Mix together cream cheese, 1/4 cup white sugar, lemon peel, vanilla, and 1 egg with an electric mixer. Set filling aside.

  3. In 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. Bake 30 to 35 minutes. Don't brown these; muffins should be light in color. Roll while still hot in sifted confectioners' sugar.
