Soft Blueberry Muffins Recipe

If you’re looking for a soft blueberry muffins recipe, then you are in luck! Here’s the best one you’ll find. The addition of the sour cream makes for a really soft muffin. Plus, there’s plenty of those juicy blueberries in there.

These muffins are not healthy, but everything in moderation, and they’re definitely worth it. Blueberries are amazing fruits though, check out this article about the soft blueberry muffins’ star ingredient.

Blueberry Muffins – Top Tips

As I said, it’s a pretty foolproof recipe, but here’s a few tips to make sure you get the best possible soft blueberry muffins:

  • You can use either fresh or frozen blueberries.
  • You could replace the sour cream for plain yoghurt, but sour cream works really well.
  • You could of course use muffin cases, but it’s so much easier to just put them straight in, make sure you grease it well with spray.
  • They will last around five days covered at room temperature (I mean, they didn’t last one day in our house…)

  • 120g sour cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 60ml milk (room temperature)

  2. Mix all of the streusel ingredients together and set aside.
  3. Whisk the flour, bicarb of soda, baking powder and salt together – set aside.
  4. Using a handheld (or stand) mixer to beat the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar on a high speed until smooth and creamy.
