Blueberry Sourcream Muffins

These Blueberry Sourcream Muffins are tasty! A little fresh lemon juice and zest mixed with sourcream adds a fresh tang. But, I learned a couple of lessons with this batch.

When cooking with blueberries, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  1. Coating the berries with flour help suspend the berries in the batter.
  2. Don’t just add a few extra berries. The fruit needs to be exact or it puts the whole moisture balance off and you end up with soggy bottoms.
  3. Since these cute paper cups don’t use a muffin tin, they need just a little longer to cook up the bottom.

Overall it was a great idea and they look lovely but we only ate the tops and tossed the rest.

Good thing I have lots of berries to experiment with!
