Simple Sundays....Blueberry Cream Muffins


Have a BLUEBERRY CREAM MUFFIN with your coffee this mornin'! I had never found a bluberry muffin recipe before this one that would "hold up" the blueberries. Before, all my muffins would be fine, but the blueberries always sunk to the bottom of the muffin. This one is wonderful, and the secret to holding those berries up is the sour cream in the recipe! It's such a creamy taste, one I think you'll love. I make these in the jumbo muffin tins and cool them, wrap individually in Cling Wrap and either freeze or refrigerate to keep them fresh for longer. I've also been known to drop them off at a friends house, or send them to work with my husband to share with his co-workers! The recipe isn't complicated, and it makes a nice big batch to share! Enjoy this simple treat!

Roberta Anne: I'm sure that you could substitute any berry that you do like in this recipe. Raspberries and cream, strawberries and cream, they all sound good! If you try it, let me know how they turn out!
