  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl until uniform. Set aside.
  3. Place cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes, or until smooth and light. Beat in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Then beat in butter, lemon juice and vanilla until smooth. Reduce the mixer speed to low and slowly pour in the milk. Beat 1 minute or until creamy and smooth (my mixture curdled, but it is okay).cream cheese muffins3
