Blueberry Sour Cream Muffins

Blueberry-Cream-Muffins-1
I always hesitate to label a recipe as “the best” because there are so many excellent recipes for any given item.  As soon as I decide one recipe is the best, I try another recipe and think it is even better.  So I am more likely to designate a recipe as “one of my favorites” or “one of the best”.  I have also been known to say that a certain recipe is one of my Top 5 or Top 10 favorite recipes.  But “the best”?  I have a hard time handing out that label.  That being said, this Blueberry Sour Cream Muffin recipe is one of my favorites, one of my Top 5, and absolutely one of the best muffin recipes ever.  THE best?  Maybe!  Give this recipe a try and you be the judge!

  2. Beautiful blueberry muffins...blueberries throughout! Great photos too!
    I think it's okay to say the best you've made if you feel that, because that doesn't say it's the best, but the best you've made.

  7. They DO look delicious. I hand out "the best" labels way too freely. But Now I must try this, next time I buy sour cream (I ALWAYS have extra, so I'm always looking for another sour cream recipe)

  9. I haven't made blueberry muffins in a while but these sound so good. I love the addition of sour cream a favorite of mine that literally I've been known to eat from a spoon. I need to give these a try especially since I have all the ingredients on hand.

  11. Since you put it that way, it seems like a recipe I really do have to try! I agree though, there are just so many good recipes out there, it's hard to pin whether one is better than another!

  15. As long as you and your family call it the best, then why not give it a proper title. I need to eat more blueberries before they are gone for the season and this would be a super yummy way. Have a great weekend.
