Ingredients Needed

  • Flour + Salt + Baking powder
  • Sugar
  • Egg whites
  • Butter
  • Cream cheese
  • Milk
  • Jam * see recipe notes

Recipe Notes & Tips

  • Be sure your butter and cream cheese are softened before using. It will give your muffins a nice soft texture and will make mixing a whole bunch easier.
  • Don’t over mix your batter. It can give you a dense muffin. Which, is not that tasty.


You can use any flavor/brand of jam that you wish. I used homemade! You will only need about 2-3 tablespoons of it. If your jam is a bit thick, you can stir in a smidgen ( maybe 1/4 teaspoon?) of water to the jam. This will make it a bit easier to swirl.


Keep any leftovers in a covered container. They are best eaten within 2-3 days. You don’t need to refrigerate them. You can freeze these too! Let them cool completely, then, store in a covered, freezer safe, container or storage bag. They will be good for several months.

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Additional Time 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • dash of salt
  • 1 TBSP butter, softened
  • 1 TBSP cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2-3 TBSP your favorite jam


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 6 count muffin pan or line with papers. If you don't have a 6 count muffin pan, simply use just 6 wells in a 12 count pan.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat butter and cream cheese until creamy. Then, add in sugar. Beat well. Next, add in egg white and milk. Beat to fully combine.
  4. Add in flour mixture and mix until there are no longer any dry spots in your batter. Your batter may be thick. If so, you can add another tablespoon of milk.
  5. Divide batter evenly into prepared pan. Add about a teaspoon of jam on top of the batter in each well. With a toothpick, swirl the jam into the batter.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

  1. I am confused about the baking soda amount. The ingredient list says:
    ” 1 1/23 tsp baking powder”

    Was this meant to be:
    1 and 1/2 teaspoons…
    or 1 and 1/3 teaspoons?

    I don’t want to assume the measure you meant. I’d like to adapt this yummy-sounding recipe to suit my keto diet, where one of the common adjustments means a swap to a low-carb flour, which, depending on the substitute flour, sometimes needs adjustment to the levening agent and/or amount of liquid. I already have the different flours, the keto jam, full-fat cream cheese, and safe granular allulose sweetener.

    Clarifying the baking soda measure will help me a lot, but perhaps reassure others who’d like to make these jam-swirled cream cheese muffins according to your recipe, but who don’t want to pass up trying the recipe, or risk guessing.


    1. Thanks for catching that! It’s 1 & 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder. It was a simple slip of the keyboard 🙂 I made the correction. Hope you enjoy them!

  2. These were PERFECT! And yummy. And a great way to use fresh raspberries!

    1. So glad you liked them Jan! Thanks for the feedback!
