Sour Cream Blueberry Muffins Recipe

Sour Cream Blueberry Muffins Recipe

When we were growing up, my mom made these warm, delicious muffins on chilly mornings. I'm now in college and enjoy baking them for friends. —Tory Ross, Cincinnati, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups biscuit/baking mix
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, combine biscuit mix and 3/4 cup sugar. In a small bowl, combine eggs and sour cream; stir into the dry ingredients just until combined. Fold in blueberries.
  • 2. Fill greased muffin cups three-fourths full. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in muffin comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 1 dozen.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

"The first time I make a recipe I pretty much follow it. These were very good in texture, nice and light, but just lacked something. I did add 1/2 t. of vanilla but they still lacked something. I am taking them to a breakfast potluck and will put a nice powdered sugar vanilla glaze on them. A nice glaze salvages everything... LOL

I'll make them again but will add 1/2 salt, maybe a touch more sugar and switch the sour cream with my homemade yogurt as someone else suggested. Hopefully, that does the trick."

My daughter has asked for a streusel topping to be added next time. Ohhhhh, I did use a can of blueberries (drained extremely well) instead of frozen or fresh."

"I divided this recipe in half, since there are only three in our family. I'm sorry that I did.... as these came out so DEE-LISH - I'm sure I will be making more tomorrow!!!

I also substituted the sugar for 4 packets of Splenda (remember, I only used half of all ingredients).
Also, I baked at 400 degrees for exactly 19 minutes - I used small muffin tins (the kind that you buy at the dollar store that are 6 muffins to a tin), and used parchment liners.
They came out perfect! The sour cream made these muffins so moist and tasty.
TY for sharing. I normally NEVER bake, but most recently was told by my doctor that I have to cut my sugar consumption, I figured that I'd give it a try. The muffins that they sell at ShopRite that use artificial sweeteners are normally tasteless and hard. Not these!!!
TY again!"

"I made these with fat free Greek yogurt for the sour cream and half a cup of egg whites for the eggs to reduce the fat & calorie count. I also reduced the sugar to about two thirds of a cup, with none for topping. Next time I want to try adding some lemon flavoring.

I used parchment paper liners and they only stuck a little even with the lower fat substitutions.
I love that these are so quick to prepare."
