Cream Cheese Cup Cakes

i had left over cream cheese after making yesterday's cream cheese bread. so i had to use it up since it doesn't keep for long after it's been opened. decided to use it up today to make something new - cream cheese cup cakes.

the original recipe was taken from aunty yochana. she made hers in mini loaves but since i don't have one, i made them in cup cakes.

for this one i added in generous amounts of cream cheese :) haha didn't want to keep the remaining cream cheese. the cream cheese filling is actually sandwiched in between the batter. so you've got to bite into it to find the treasure haha. i like the toasted ground almonds added into the batter and it was yummy!

here's the recipe:
