Blueberry Cream Muffins


It’s blueberry season in the North and these muffins are a delicious way to use them. The secret to the flavour is the sour cream. Not only are they moist and flavourful, they also come out of the oven looking pretty. You can sprinkle a little sugar on top before baking for an extra crunch or add a streusel topping. This recipe makes 24 muffins but can be cut in half. Be sure to follow the mixing directions as written to get the right texture and don’t over mix.
