Muffins – Apricot and cream cheese

My favorite breakfast…….It’s my alternative breakfast in the absence of filipino’s “SILOG’s”…But, since I am a filipino, nothing beats our common almusal(breakfast) like chicksilog and “tocilog”  which I already posted. out for more “SILOG” dishes!…… back to the muffin, Since I invented the apricot muffin in our cafe, I am so happy to share you the secret recipe(Sorry boss for revealing the recipe)…..Did you know that apricots has high mineral content, that makes it beneficial in prevention some cases of anemia, tuberculosis, asthma, bronchitis, and toxemia.
