Buttery Sour Cream Muffins Recipe

“This quick recipe is ideal when you’re in a hurry,” says Mary Cleckley of Slaton, Texas. “It’s great with soup or beef stew.” These moist muffins are filled with rich buttery flavor and would also be nice served with fresh fruit.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:3 servings


  • 1/2 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon water


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients just until moistened. Coat muffin cups with cooking spray; fill three-fourths full.

"These were best right out of the oven! Buttery and soft, although the sour cream taste was odd - at first I thought I didn't like that but I ate three in a row! I doubled the recipe; I think you could probably use less butter because there was a pool of butter in the muffin tins that had leaked through the paper cups! Thanks for the simply yummy recipe!"

" I am not fond of self rising flour.  I am interested in these though.  I might make my own self rising flour with LESS salt or try subbing Bisquick mix.  Sounds llike it could be interchangeable in this recipe.  I will have to give them a try.  Also I think if I made my own self rising flour, I might use whole white wheat for more fiber. :)  just my thoughts! :) "

"The muffins were very moist. They didn't have a lot of flavor on their own but when served with chili they seemed to fit nicely with one another."
