Blueberry Muffins

These are such good muffins, that I can hardly wait for fresh blueberry to be in season and make sure that I freeze lots.
I got the recipe from my friend Helga and they have been one of our family favorites that I would love to share with you. Just so you know that what is in the ( ) are how I changed them up to suit our families life style, the changes don't hinder the wonderful deliciously sweet muffins at all.
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup vegetable oil, or melted butter (1/2 c. oil)
  • 2 cups sour cream (plain yogurt)
  • 2 cups sugar ( 1 cup)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 cups flour
  • ( I used 2 cups unbleached flour and mixed 1 cup whole wheat and 1 cup oat bran minus two tablespoons which I replaced with ground flax seed)
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 cups blueberries (you can never have too many ;^D)
  1. Combine eggs, oil, sour cream, sugar, and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
  2. Sift dry ingredients together in separate bowl.
  3. Add to wet mixture, stirring until moistened, yet still a little lumpy.
  4. Add blueberries and stir lightly to distribute them evenly in the batter.
  5. Pour into greased muffin tins.
  6. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

  8. How many muffins does this recipe make? I'm assuming they probably freeze well (if they last that long!)

  9. Just thought I would let you know that I got 24 muffins our of this recipe...and yes they do freeze well.
    when you thaw them they really should be thawed with out being covered, other wise they get soggy.
    hope that helps.
    To be honest they rarely make it into the freezer.....;^D.
