Awesome Sour Cream Muffins

"A very moist and tasty muffin. Topped with the butter/flour/sugar crumbs, they are addictive. You can, of course, add blueberries, raisins, dates, nuts., anything to your taste, but I think the plain muffin can't be beat! This is an altered combination of two old recipes."

  • Beat egg with a whisk in a large mixing bowl until light. Add Sour Cream, Butter, and Sugar; whisk together until smooth. Measure dry ingredients into a bowl or on waxed paper; add to wet ingredients and stir/fold until no more dry ingredients show. (over-mixing will make muffins tough).
  • Spray PAM lightly into 12 muffin cups, or use paper liners. Pour dough into each cup. Preheat oven to 400°F Mix crumb topping (if desired), until small crumbs form. Sprinkle evenly over each muffin.
  • Bake at 400 F for 20-25 minutes, until light golden brown and top is puffed. Remove from pan, serve immediately or let cool, place in closed container to be used later.

  1. This was the worst muffin recipe I have ever tried! It was tasteless and I even added blueberries! The topping recipe made enough topping for 40 muffins! Not a keeper for me!


Retired on disability in 2004. I live in a nice home that is owned by four cats (lol). My 2 children are grown and gone; I have 3 grandchildren, who I love dearly. I enjoy the beach and the FL lifestyle, and I grow a small garden in large pots - this year(tomatoes; sweet peppers; Parsley, garlic, chives, basil, and cilantro). I am going to have to re-plant my tomatoes, as we have had some serious rain this summer and they got flooded out. Feast or famine; a day before the rains started, we were in an extreme drought! I love to cook and bake (not much fun for just me, but my "landlords" love the leftovers), lol. I'm really into tradition, and utilizizng (and sometimes adapting) old family recipes, handed down at least 4 generations. To my total delight, my son, his two daughters, and my daughter & son-in-law have all asked for the old family recipes. Of course most of them are not written down; but they want measurements, so I've been trying to update things that have been in my head for over 45 years! We were all together for Christmas 2008, and I sat and oversaw the younger generations making their favorie holiday meals & treats. They all complained that they weren't 'as good' as mine, lol. My paternal grandmother was Czek/Bohemian, and the other was an Okie from Muskogee, so the range, as you can probably imagine, are wide apart. My favorite holiday dish to cook is a fresh ham roasted with caraway seeds, served with Bohemian-style sauerkraut, potato dumplings, home made applesauce, veggies; and Fleezki (a ham, cabbage & noodle dish). From the OK side, the biggest love is warm blackberry cobbler, topped by whipping cream or ice cream. Baking is my true passion, although I'm not as able as years gone by. Some of the family favorites are Apple or Nut Strudel; Philly Tarts; Turtle Cookies; Pecan, Apple, Cherry or Cream Pies, and at least 7 different cookies.
