June is a great month for my family. We celebrate the birth of my son, the birth of my husband, and Father’s Day. We’ve also spent lots of time outside, riding bikes, doing sidewalk chalk, and swinging at the park.

Another reason I love June is because it celebrates my favorite food group. That’s right: June is Dairy Month. I’ve partnered up with the Indiana Family of Farmers to share with you one of my favorite dairy recipes, featuring my favorite dairy product in the world. I found this recipie on the Bake or Break blog, and I absolutely love it. Easy enough for a kitchen dummy like me, and oh so tasty.

Of course, I had to start by putting on my Winners Drink Milk apron. 

Then I assembled my ingredients, including some delicious dairy items. I also bought some chipotle cheddar, which didn’t go in the muffins…but did go in my belly. Have I mentioned I love cheese?

Finally, I got to work. About 30 minutes later, this came out of my oven:

Golden, creamy, and delicious.

Here’s the recipe so you can try them for yourself:

Muffins:

  • 3 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2 Cups Sugar (divided)
  • 4 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 2/3 Cup Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 8 Ounces Cream Cheese, Softened
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and put liners in your muffin pan.

Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center.

Stir together milk, oil, and eggs. Pour into well in the dry ingredients. Stir just until moistened.

Combine cream cheese and 1 cup sugar. Fold half of this mixture into the batter.

Spoon batter into muffin pan, filling about 2/3 full. Put a little bit of remaining cream cheese mixture on the top of each muffin, and then press into muffins with the spoon handle.

Topping:
  • 1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Butter, Softened
Combine ingredients. Sprinkle some on the top of each muffin. Bake muffins for 24 to 30 minutes until golden brown.
