This is what I'm talking about.

This is my perfect muffin. It is soft, light, fluffy, moist, and not too sweet.

Blueberry Cream Muffins

4 eggs
2 cups white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups sour cream
2 cups blueberries 

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease 24 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners. 

2. In large bowl beat eggs, gradually add sugar while beating. Continue beating while slowly pouring in oil. Stir in vanilla. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, salt and baking soda. 

3. Stir dry ingredients into egg mixture alternately with sour cream. Gently fold in blueberries. Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups. 

4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes.

I halved the recipe, filled each cup to the brim, and still had a little extra batter. (Now that I know how yummy they are, I wish I had used that extra to bake a few more.) I also sprinkled a little white sugar on top before baking to give them a sweet crunch.

I really like this recipe because it uses things I always have on hand. But if I ever have lemon curd, I am totally trying these. These were yummy, too, but I thought they were more like a dessert, less like a muffin.

p.s. I am so proud of my little sister!


  1. They sound so yummy I guess I will have to try them.

  2. They do sound yummy and that picture looks delish!!! I love blueberry muffins too, I'm so trying this recipe.

  3. steph you're so nice to me :) and you should make lemon curd! it's so easy and soooo yummy. don't buy it - it's way too expensive and way too easy to warrant the price. the epicurous website's recipe is the one i used awhile ago in berlin and it was so stinkin good.

    love you steph! i want to come over and eat muffins! i always miss american baked goods when i'm away. the US does desserts the best for sure.

  4. Yum thanks for sharing- I've made those "desert" ones before and they are good but so crumbly! My current favorite uses sour cream too so I'm excited to try these.

  5. Stephanie...I am Jill Stodards cousin and a happy blog stalker. I love your little creations...I have to tell you I made these yesterday after getting blueberries at the farmers market...they were/are absolutely DIVINE! Thanks!

  6. oh my goodness! this looks incredible!
    thank you!

  7. yum... i love blueberry muffins and i must try these!

  8. I made them! :) Yummy! I've been craving muffins lately. i cut the recipe in half and still got 23 muffins! :) They're super yummy! I hope i don't eat them all tonight! Loved the sprinkled sugar on top!
