Cuisine: American
Keyword: maple cream cheese frosting
Servings: 11 muffins


  • ½ cup cream cheese (110 g), at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup


  • Using hand beaters, beat the cream cheese on high until smooth and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Very slowly drizzle in the maple syrup in a thin stream while beating (if you add it too quickly, it might get lumpy). Continue beating on high until completely smooth. 


  • It's important that the cream cheese is fully softened to room temperature before beating, otherwise you might get lumps. 
  • Beating the maple syrup into the cream cheese in a slow, steady stream also prevents lumps.
