I have another recipe for blueberry crumb recipes that I adore, but they are a little more labor intensive. This recipe is quick and easy, and makes a batch of lovely blueberry muffins that my family was very happy to devour.

I really love baking with sour cream, it just seems to make baked goods so moist and tender. Plus it adds a depth of flavor that just can’t be beat! If you don’t have sour cream, you can substitute plain yogurt or greek yogurt, they should work just fine.

Soft and tender blueberry muffins are extra delicious thanks to the addition of sour cream.

Sprinkling sugar on the tops of the muffins before baking them is an optional step, but I personally think it adds a lot. Not only does it make the tops sparkly and pretty, it adds a yummy sweetness to every bite.

Give these Sour Cream Blueberry Muffins a try. A delicious muffin recipe! #blueberrymuffin

I typically use frozen blueberries in most of my recipes because fresh are a little hard to come by. But fresh blueberries do work better. They don’t leave blue streaks in the batter, so you end up with a prettier muffin.

Of course, if you aren’t taking photos, they taste the same, so it doesn’t really matter. Use whatever you have on hand!

  1. It was okay. It wasn’t as moist as I thought it will be.

  2. These were terrible!!! Waste of time and energy. Tasteless and heavy.

  3. Sour Cream Blueberry Muffins
    I made these. Half the batch with blueberries, half with just semi sweet chocolate chips.
    Loved them. Kids loved them. They are not so much on the wet/moist side. If you want that, increase your oil and sour cream a little. But, personally we liked them as is. I’ll be making them again 😁

    • My kids would love them with chocolate chips! We like them as is too, but increasing the oil and sour cream is definitely an option. Thanks for the tip!

    I made these and doubled the recipe. Unfortunately they did not taste good. They tasted like flour. I was very careful with my measurements, but the dough was very thick and sticky and I could barely fold in the berries. They just do not taste like fluffy, sweet muffins.

  5. Yummy! Looks really delicious, can’t wait to try it. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
