Banana cream cheese muffins

Today is going to be one of those days....I was awake at 3:45 and couldn't go back to sleep.  So finally at 4:30 I crawled out of bed.  Thinking it is going to be a long day with all day classes... so I needed something to kick start my day..along with lots of caffeine ;)  muffins... wanted something a little different, so I came up with this recipe.. it is so delicious, and moist.  The cream cheese & bananas in the center make them a little gooey and oh so good... Make these soon you will love them.. Enjoy

Banana cream cheese muffins

1 cup sugar+ 2 T
8 oz cream cheese, divided, softened
3 bananas, 2 mashed, and 1 diced fine
1/3 cup sour cream
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla, divided
2 cups flour
1 stick butter/margarine,softened
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t kosher salt

Preheat oven to 350.  Line cupcake pan with paper liners.  In large bowl, place 1/2 the softened cream cheese, butter & sour cream.  Mix well with an electric mixer.  Add sugar and mix well.  Add eggs, bananas & 1 t vanilla and mix well.  In bowl whisk together flour, baking powder & soda.  Add flour mixture in thirds to wet mixture, beating just until combined (don't over-mix).  Fill muffin cups 1/2 full.  In small bowl place remaining cream cheese, 2T sugar, and 1/2 t of vanilla mix well with fork.  Spoon a heaping teaspoonful into the center of each muffin, then top with some chopped banana, continuing until all the muffin cups are done.  Carefully spoon the remainder of the muffin batter over the top of the cream cheese/banana mixture smoothing out (I used my finger but you can use a spoon), continuing until all the muffin cups are done.  Bake for 25-28 minutes (mine were lightly browned cause I like my muffins on the lighter side). Remove from oven.  Enjoy
