Could You Tell I Love Muffins?

I guess by my articles you can tell that I love muffins. I try all combinations. I had a few blueberries and a banana. Not enough of either to use just one of them, so I combined them. I also had a lot of sour cream left over from another dish, so I added that instead of the oil or butter. I used my regular blueberry muffin recipe and changed it to use the ingredients I had. I also like to change things up.

They came out much lighter than the original recipe. I think I might keep in the sour cream from now on.

You can experiment with any recipe. You never know what you can come up with and how you can improve on a recipe.

      Hi Linda, Thanks so much for your visits and great comments. The sour cream also eliminated the need for the fat in the muffins, if that is a concern.

      Blessings to you.

      Muffins are one of my favourite things to make because they are so easy to create. I've never thought of adding sour cream to them, though. It sounds like a great idea. Thanks for the recipe and for sharing the tip about dusting the blueberries with flour, Rachel.
