  • Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.

  • Combine sugar, milk, sour cream, butter, eggs, and lemon zest in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until blended. Fold in the flour mixture until batter is just moistened. Fold in blueberries; avoid overmixing because batter will turn purple.

  • Fill muffin cups 3/4 full of batter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes.

Perfect!! It is blueberry season here in Michigan and this is the third blueberry muffin recipe I used in the past week. They are definitely the best! My family loved them and agreed they were bakery quality. They were moist with the perfect amount of lemon taste. I added a lemon glaze (lemon juice & powdered sugar) to add a bit more sweetness. Yum! Read More

I followed the recipe and would not change a thing. I did use a Meyer lemon and it gave it an extra sweet boost. Read More

Didn’t change a thing with ingredients, but just sprayed the pan or used Crisco instead of cups. Also I made 12 large and 42 smaller size cupcakes from the recipe. Definitely don’t mix the blueberries in too much, I kept some dough rather “white” and added the blueberry mixture to the top and some inside. Read More

Made these muffins today . They are light and fluffy. I used fresh blueberries, and they turned out beautifully. Using regular muffin liners, this recipe made 2- 1/2 dozen. Read More

It was much better than I imagined, but I made a few botches as I ran out of flour and sour cream, and forgot the butter until the last minute. As a result I had to sub 2 c flour and 1 cup coconut flour. Reduced to 1/4 cup sour cream and added extra 100 g milk. Also sub butter with 1/4 oil. I added the lemon juice after the mixing to prevent the milk from curdling. I also use half sugar and half splenda. So overall I can’t really say i made this recipe....more like “inspired”. XD The issue I have with this recipe is that it is really for 12 jumbo muffin pans and not cupcake size muffin. I ended up with extra batter and I bake them in a mini cake pan. Also the liquid instructions could be much better. Mix egg first, then butter, then sour cream. After that add sugar, then finally milk. That way you won’t get all these lumps. Before you mix in the dry ingredients. Everything else is great! Read More
