Blueberry Cream Muffins

When most people think of Maine, they immediately think of lobster. But we who live here know of something equally as good: wild blueberries. Their flavor is unmatched, and they're especially great in these blueberry muffins with sour cream. —Lillian Van der Harst, Center Lovell, Maine

    I have not tried the recipe yet but am replying to bud690 on loaf instructions. The basic rule is to reduce the oven temperature by 25°F and bake for 50-60 minutes, but start checking for doneness at 45 minutes. Hope that helps!

    Great Recipe! I don't bake much but was wondering how to adapt this recipe for loaf pans.

    Delicious! Very moist! I used frozen blueberries, but other than that, I didn't change a thing. Btw, I halved the recipe and got 12 regular size muffins. It just about filled the cups and I was worried about what kind of mess it would make in my oven if they went over, but they just rose straight up and made HUGE muffins. Will definitely make again!

    Absolutely delicious muffins! After reading the other reviews I also cut the recipe in half, although I did add 2 1/2 cups of frozen blueberries. This gave me 18 muffins and they are delicious. The muffins are tender and moist and not too sweet which compliments the berries. I will definitely be making these again!

    I've tried a lot of blueberry muffin recipes. This one is a keeper! Made exactly by recipe, but cut in half. I also got 14 beautiful large muffins. Fabulous!!

    This is the first time I made blueberry muffins from scratch. These muffins turned out perfectly; I have no desire to look for new recipes. Like justmbeth, I cut the ingredients in half

    Luscious! Very moist. I made 1/2 recipe but got about 14 muffins filled to nearly the top, where I was expecting 12.
