Sour Cream Blueberry Muffins

When we were growing up, my mom made these warm, delicious muffins on chilly mornings. I'm now in college and I enjoy baking them for friends. —Tory Ross, Cincinnati, Ohio

    Perfect for my busy lifestyle and 2 little helpers. I've yet to find a better muffin recipe for this little effort.

    I'm always making muffins. Some turn out , some are lacking but I was pleasantly surprised how good these were. Not as good as my high calories muffins with lots of glaze and crumble on top but very tasty and SO EASY! Hubbie who is not overly keen on muffins said they were the best so far.

    I added the lemon zest and a little bit of almond extract. They were moist and delicious. Next time, I'll use paper liners. I didn't have any blueberry yogurt but that sounds good too! (I used frozen blueberries)

    These muffins were so easy and delicious. I found them moist and flavorful. I thought about leaving the sugar off the top but I'm glad I added it. It really gave the top a nice texture and flavor. I'll be making these again.

    I made these with my two year-old. It's a great recipe if you're looking for an easy one to do with kids. I'm not crazy about the sour cream taste, but they're still really good. I'll definitely try them with blueberry yogurt next time. Also my daughter loves them ??.

    These turned out very well. The sour cream makes them taste more rich and homemade, even though these come together quickly by using a baking mix. These are a nice time-saver for busy times.

    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... LOLI'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.

    These muffins are delicious! I used my homemade biscuit mix instead of store-bought, which worked great. I will definitely be making them again!

    These were wonderful! But instead of sour cream, I used blueberry yogurt. Also, I used fresh, instead of frozen, blueberries.
