Sour cream adds great moisture/structure to these blueberry streusel muffins as well as the use of oil. Not to mention, every bite has pockets of sweet blueberries. And if eaten as soon as they come out of the oven…they’re even better because the blueberries are still warm and juicy 😛

Can I Use Frozen Blueberries?

For best results, I’d say use fresh blueberries in this recipe. Frozen ones tend to hold a lot of moisture and will seep into the batter and can leave you with purple/blue-ish muffins. I recommend fresh blueberries that are even coated with a bit of flour prior to adding them in the batter. This process helps ensure that they don’t burst while mixing them in.

Do I Need A Stand Mixer?

Nah. One of the beauties of this recipe is that it all comes together with a few bowls, if even that. A bowl to combine the dry ingredients, a bowl for the wet, and a bowl to make the crumble topping!

Can I Substitute The Sour Cream?

Yes; a great substitute for sour cream is yogurt. I would use the full-fat kind for best results.

What Makes These The Best Blueberry Muffins?

For starters, this recipe makes about 18 cupcakes which is the perfect amount for a crowd. Not feeding a crowd? No biggie as these blueberry muffins can store away nicely for up to 3 days in an airtight container.

As previously mentioned, these muffins have a glorious crumbly topping that adds some texture and tasty flair. Lastly, heaps of moisture are found throughout these muffins without a dry crumb in sight!
