I don't have a whole lot to say about these. I don't make muffins very often, not sure why. I guess I always consider them only for breakfast. And, since I don't vary my breakfasts too much from my Greek yogurt or overnight oats, I don't see subbing them in. But for some reason these drew me in. I guess since it's been awhile for me and muffins, this was a good starter.
I found this via Cookie Madness. These are a nice muffin base, allowing you to add in whatever the heck you want. I added a dark brown sugar streusel topping with I think was much needed. Warm out of the oven is best. They didn't keep that well. I thought they got pretty tough in the day or two following=/. But certainly right out of the oven is incredible! They taste like the best cinnamon coffee cake you've ever eaten!
Overall, I don't feel compelled to ever make these again. I made half the recipe for 12 muffins.
Okay, boring post. Sorry! Trust me tough, better ones are coming real soon!
High Rise Sour Cream Muffins
4 oz (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup sour cream
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour (12.5 oz)
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. If you’re using a dark (darker than silver) muffin pan, use 400 degrees F. Grease 24 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and creamy. Beat in vanilla, eggs, salt and baking soda. Fold in the sour cream, then fold in the flour and any add-ins you choose (see below).
Divide batter evenly between the muffin cups and bake for 15 minutes at 450F or about 23 minutes at 400F. Remove from oven, let cool. Remove from pans. Make 24Also, I won a giveaway over at Chocolate Moosey!
She was having a Nescafe Coffee Giveaway and I won! I got this nice Nescafe mug and 5 boxes with 6 different coffee types in each.
They are individual sized packets perfect to add to 6 oz of water (and of course a heavy dose of white chocolate mocha creamer he he!) My mom gave up coffee for Lent so they were all left for me to enjoy! I've never drunken coffee regularly before, but now I'm becoming an addict! Of course when I run out I can quit cold turkey, right? I hope!
