Lemon Poppy Seed Cheesecake Muffins

The combination of poppy seed and lemon hasn´t been here a while so I made Lemon Poppy Seed Cheesecake Muffins. Since I had some mascarpone which needed to be used up, I´ve been tempted to make some cheesecake muffins for a while. Fluffy cake batter in muffins with creamy cheesecake center, well, who could resist that. A muffin taste is perfectly balanced, a soft lemon flavor thanks to lemon zest and juice, a couple tablespoons of poppy seed and a soft creamy lemon cheesecake center. Batter and cheesecake filling contain just the right amount of lemons, so there is no need to be afraid of an artificial, too lemon taste in muffins, since I don´t like it either. Muffins are really soft and fluffy and if you don´t have mascarpone, you can easily make just ordinary lemon poppy seed muffins, without cheesecake center, they will be tasty as well. But why not to combine it. Another plus, at least for me, is that you can easily separate muffins from muffin cups. These are tasty creamy fluffy muffins, perfect for some trips or in your bag.
