It doesn’t take long browsing here at BoB to see that I love baking with berries. I love all kinds of berries, but if I have to pick a favorite berry, I would likely choose blueberries. And, one of my favorite uses for blueberries is muffins.

Just to make these Blueberry Sour Cream Mini Muffins even better, I used one of my favorite baking ingredients – sour cream. I love the texture and flavor that it adds. These little muffins are everything you’d want in a blueberry muffin. They are seriously dangerous, though, because you’ll be tempted to eat one right after another!

These muffins also benefit from a bit of lemon zest in the batter to give them a little citrus zing. If you’d like even more lemon flavor, then you can use lemon juice in place of the vanilla extract, too.

As these muffins are small, be sure not to use extra large blueberries in the batter. Smaller berries will work far better in these little muffins. Remember that smaller berries have more flavor than larger ones, too.

These Blueberry Sour Cream Mini Muffins are just the thing when you want something a little different than traditional blueberry muffins.

  9. I often find that anytime you can infuse sour cream or yogurt, it seems to help make the muffin moister ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. These look great. Bought muffins are always one of life’s big disappointments, the homemade ones are always so much better. Really looking forward to trying these. Thanks for a great recipe.

  11. Great looking muffins!!!

  12. Hey Jen, nice recipe – not taking part in the giveaway as I’m not in the US. Two little things. Salt is mentioned in the method but not in the ingredients.

    Re spices – They are there to be used. you should empty the contents of those jars (in your food) at least six times overin two years ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. I made these today, but with raspberries, as I’m not a big fan of blueberries. They’ve come out light and fluffy, and the flavor is lovely. But, I did end up with nearly enough batter to make almost 48 mini muffins. So, I made one pan of 24 minis and then 8 full-size muffins. I’m pretty sure I measured everything correctly. At any rate, I would definitely makes these again!

  14. Very tasty and moist. I didn’t have a lemon on hand to zest so added half tsp of lemon juice. Measured everything but ended up with 24 mini muffins plus a mini loaf.

  15. The recipe says this yields ย 48 mini muffin, but directions only use one 24 mini muffin pan. Which is correct? ย
