Pinspiration in the Kitchen- Sour Cream Blueberry Muffins

When you can get fresh blueberries for a bargain price, you buy them, right?  Spurred by a good deal and a blueberry muffin recipe from King Arthur Flour that I pinned earlier this month, I made a batch of sour cream blueberry muffins the other day.  (CLICK HERE for the recipe.)
Blueberries are one of those berries that freezes very easily, so buying in bulk is a win-win.  I have a batch of warm blueberry muffins now, and a whole mess of blueberries frozen to make muffins or pancakes or to throw in a smoothie later when the leaves start to turn and blueberries are no longer quite so affordable (or juicy, or sweet!) at the store.  I am telling you, folks.  Your freezer really is your grocery budget's best friend, and a wonderful way to still have a little taste of summer right up through the New Year. ;)

The addition of sour cream in the batter made for a deliciously moist muffin.  These were a big hit with the husband who is a huge fan of blueberry muffins. 

Before baking them, I sprinkled some colored sugar crystals on top of the muffins.  Aren't they pretty?? :)
This is definitely my new go-to recipe for blueberry muffins.  This recipe would also work well with raspberries.

I am planning on hosting another Pinspiration in the Kitchen Party next Friday, and am looking for co-hosts!  This party will be the big kick-off for my Birthday Celebration week. :)  If you are interested in co-hosting, please email me at
