Mixed Berry Muffins a light and moist muffin made with sour cream, filled with fresh berries.
I’m still on the search for a muffin that I love. After trying a streusel topped banana muffin that was pretty good, I thought I would try a more traditional one with streusel. I found this one in a new cookbook, Butter Baked Goods. This is a cookbook from a bakery in Vancouver. It is the first recipe I’ve tried and was pleasantly surprised at how light and moist these muffins turned out to be. My problem with muffins is that they are dry, but these were super moist even two days later. I used blackberries and raspberries from the grocery shipped from some place far far away and that was the only drawback. The muffin part was so delicious that it made up for the lackluster berries I used. I can’t wait to make a trip to the farmers market and try these with some fresh berries or maybe peaches. I think the sour cream really make these so much better than other muffins I have tried. This is going to be my “go-to” recipe that I’ll be experimenting with in the future.
All that tried these loved them. Taylor’s comment was that they didn’t need the streusel and even though she doesn’t like muffins, she thought they were great. My other testers also thought they were pretty tasty. While I love to get feedback, I think I am my biggest critic, so if I don’t love something, then I’m not going to pass it along. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. Now I just need an excuse to experiment with them , I think I see a breakfast meeting on the horizon!Print
