Muffin Monday: Marble Muffins

After going rogue last week, I’ve returned to Baker Street’s Muffin Monday capers! This was the first time I’ve made marble muffins, marble anything really. I found the prep time to be a bit more time consuming but still fun. My favorite part was making the streusel. The streusel making was messy but it was fun to just be a kid & get my hands on the mushy butter & just kneading everything to a crumble.

These muffins turned out huge! I’m only photographing the two normal ones. The rest turned out to be muffins on roids! It’s not a bad thing though. I never complain about extra sweetness. The tart cream cheese and aromatic cocoa powder combined with a moist muffin were just delicious. As gooey and sweet as the muffins were, I used whole wheat flour, which makes it ok, right? :)

Happy Halloween!
