Moist Sour Cream Blueberry Muffins

sour cream blueberry muffins

So, we had some leftover sour cream again (a common occurrence in my house), and didn’t know what to do with it. I found a wonderful muffin recipe, to which I threw in some of the beautiful frozen blueberries A’s mum gave to us.

The result: a deliciously moist muffin bursting with blueberry goodness. They are simple, easy to make and freeze well.
