Triple Berry Sour Cream Muffins

These bakery style muffins are bursting with berries!
Sour cream makes amps up this batter, I promise you'll be making these muffins forever.

If there is anything that will get to my kid's heart and whip their attitudes around in a second, it's a good homemade muffin.  They love them!

When I make a batch they are often gone within a day.  Yep, 12 muffins, 3 kids....gone in a day.  Sometimes I'm able to snag one quick, but more often than not they'll eat two for breakfast, grab a couple for snacks and by dinner the whole batch is gone.

But, they are homemade and made with love, so I don't really care.  It could be much worse! It could be pre-packaged stuff that's been sitting in the cupboard for weeks.

So I'll take this as a win.

Like everyone else, I feel like I've been cooking and baking a TON during this quarantine.  Not because I always want to, but basically out of necessity.  I've been able to keep my big grocery hauls to every two weeks {stretch and get creative!}, but I'm itching to just casually walk into a store and browse.

Anyone with me?

I haven't even mentioned Target.  I really want to aimlessly stroll the aisles with nothing in mind to buy and then walk out having spent $100 on nothing I actually went in there for.

Those were the days.

Until then, I bake and cook and cook and bake.

These muffins - how do I start?

The inspiration came from two items; a big bag of frozen berries in my freezer from Costco and a new container of my favorite rich, sour cream from Kalona SuperNatural.

My kids love berries {especially in baked goods} and I've always loved how sour cream enhances any batter.  So I got to work and baked up these beauties.

Prepare yourself...these are insanely delicious.

You know when you order a big 'ol muffin at a bakery and it's basically the best thing you've ever eaten?

These muffins might rival that bakery muffin.

The are big, very rich and moist and by sprinkling just a bit of sugar on the tops before baking it give these muffins a sweet, sticky crust on top, reminding you of every bakery style muffin you've ever ordered.

I used a combo of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries.  That triple combo goes together well and gives each bite a burst of berry sweetness.  You can use whatever berries you enjoy, but I really enjoy this version with just a bit of everything.

I cannot wait until you try these!

Grab some softened butter as you walk by {trust me, butter takes them over the top}, sit back and enjoy.  These are great for family breakfasts or to take to a friend who'd love a pick-me-up.  Have you baked for anyone yet?

These muffins would be a great start.

  1. Found this recipe on Foodtalk. Going to give it a go, really like your style! And I agree, sour cream makes any batter better! Will prepare as written then a second batch prepared with cherries. I have a boatload of cherries to use up plus I love them. My bubble buddies will be so happy! Thanks for sharing.
