Blueberry Cream Muffins




It was finally time to clear the freezer of the last of the blueberries we picked last summer.  What better way to showcase them than in these muffins.

Blueberry picking in Oregon is truly a highlight of the summer.  Early summer is cool and breezy and Oregon blueberries are some of the biggest I've seen. 

We are lucky to live so close to many blueberry farms where we can pick bucket loads of blueberries for what seems like pennies on the dollar.

The sour cream in these muffins makes them light and airy.  Raspberries will also work perfectly in these muffins.

Try them out


Blueberry picking!


In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add berries and toss GENTLY.


Combine eggs, sour cream, oil and vanilla; mix well.  Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.


Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full.  Bake at 400o F for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

    Hi! Those muffins look so tasty! I live alone though but would love to make them, can you tell me how many the recipe makes so I can scale it down some? Thanks!

  3. When I first saw the pictures, I got jealous because for a split second I thought maybe, just maybe, there was someplace in this country that was warm enough for blueberries to grow.

    Love blueberry muffins, and I love how you made them with cream.

    I just made these today after classes were done. It’s been so gloomy down here in SoCal not only because of the weather but because of the stress ball law students I’m with every day! These muffins brightened up the day! They were delicious and helped produce many a smile!
