OOH OOH OOH were these great. I put in a chopped bananna and some pecans. Fabulous flavor, you could really taste the banana and pecan. I was in the process of mixing when I realized my sour cream had gone bad. I used plain lowfat yogurt instead, and it worked great!!!
This is really a recipe for scones rather than muffins. These "muffins" are very lumpy, crumbly, and dense, which is profoundly unmuffinlike. I do not appreciate being lied to. Although they tasted great! Good recipe.
Great muffins! These were very light and moist and airy. I added dried cranberries and white chocolate chips and they took about 22 minutes to bake. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
The sour cream made the muffins so moist. I added mushed up banana, chocolate chips and a few blueberries. The kids at our playdate loved them! Not too sweet, either. Will make this my go-to muffin recipe!
This is a great recipe. I used almond extract instead of vanilla, and substituted self-rising flour for the flour, baking powder & salt. (I used 1 1/2C plus 2 tsp.) I added 2/3 C of butterscotch chips and 2/3 C of of pecans. And then used my cookie scoop to put them into muffin cup liners that I had sprayed lightly with Bakers Pam, and they came out perfectly. I will definitely be using this recipe again!
A very good recipe. I used dried cranberries and chopped walnuts; the flavor was great. And I liked the consistency and that the muffins were not too sweet. The batter was quite thick; what is great about that is that it is very neat to scrape into the muffin cups. No slopover onto the pan! The photos are exactly what the muffins look like. Thanks for posting . . . . . Janet
Doubled the recipe. Made with dried cherries and milk chocolate chips. Excellent!!! ~edited to add~ Made with fresh blueberries and husband said they were the best blueberry muffins he ever had! I'm out of sour cream (I think I'll sub yogurt), but I want to try the banana/choc. chip.
Wow, these muffins were good. I added fresh blackberries to them. I am sure I will be making these often, trying different fillings. Thanks Tracy
These muffins are fantastic! The muffin part is tasty and moist and yet a little dense so it is perfect with coffee. I misread the add-in part of the instructions and mixed in 3/4 c. chocolate chips, 3/4 c. dried cranberries and the orange zest. They were outstanding! I am using this combo for mini loaves to give as Christmas gifts as well as making them again for us. Next time I'm trying the dried cherries and chocolate chips. I'm also going to try the dried blueberries and some pecans. Can't wait! Thanks for sharing this marvelous recipe! Update: The dried cherry, chocolate chip, almond extract combo is our favorite so far. Delicious!
Exeptional! For half of the flour I substituted cake flour, then followed the recipe exactly, adding dried cranberries. These delicate muffins need no butter, but a sprinkling of coarse sugar on top would add a wonderful tooth and sweetness.
