Step four: Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Why Bake With Sour Cream?
Since sour cream is one of the fattiest dairy products, its extra fat content in this case will make your muffins moister and richer.
Sour cream controls browning and activates baking soda. This is all thanks to its acidity and fat content. It is one of the best replacements for milk in any baking recipe.
Will Sour Cream Curdle In The Oven?
Not in this recipe or most baking recipes. Is is mainly used to add richness and tang to baking recipes.
Are Blueberries Healthy?
Blueberries possess an extremely high antioxidant capacity, with their present flavonoids having the greatest impact. They are low in calories, but high in nutrients like fiber and other important vitamins. Blueberries are rich in anthocyanins, which has been associated with a reduced risk of heart attacks and the antioxidants in blueberries benefit brain function and help to delay mental decline.
You really can’t go wrong when it comes to enjoying blueberries.
