Good morning, everyone! Today I was up bright and early around 5. The birds were loud and I just couldn’t fall back to sleep, so I decided to head downstairs. And bake. While scrolling through my old recipe site I found a muffin recipe that I’d completely forgotten about, so I tweaked it just a little and was very happy with the results!
Blueberry Sour Cream Muffins
A simple, quick muffin recipe.
Write a review
2 cups biscuit mix (such as Bisquick)
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. sugar, divided
1 cup (8 oz) sour cream
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
2 tsp. lemon zest
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the biscuit mix and 1/2 cup sugar. Whisk the lemon juice, egg and sour cream together until combined. Stir this mixture into the dry ingredients just until moistened. (The batter will be very thick.) Fold in the blueberries. Fill greased or lined muffin tins half-full. Combine the lemon zest and remaining sugar and sprinkle a bit over each muffin. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Allow the muffins to cool in the pan for about 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack.
Yield: 12 muffins

As I noted in the recipe, the batter is very thick when you combine the wet and dry ingredients. Just trust the recipe! Here’s a photo of how they looked in the muffin tin. They definitely have a consistency closer to drop biscuits before you bake them. (Sorry for the poor photo quality, but this was a good as it was going to get at 5:45 a.m.)
Sure enough, the muffins rose just fine and the kids were all happily surprised to have fresh-baked muffins first thing this morning. Of course, I enjoyed them too
One of my favorite blog finds this year was Finding Joy in My Kitchen. If you haven’t visited, make sure you do because SnoWhite is a great source for healthy recipes! This week she is counting down to 2012 and inviting readers to join in the fun by sharing their very best recipes of 2011. Today’s theme is breakfast dishes.
You’re going to have to take my word on this one. The photo isn’t the greatest, and yes I know that the recipe sounds a little… well, strange. I mean spiced ground pork? With milk? For breakfast? Trust me, it took years before I would even try this recipe. But once I had, I was a convert. Yum!
