These muffins, freckled with blueberries, are HEAVEN to blueberry-loving foodies such as myself!

Try making sour cream blueberry muffins from scratch—it’ll make your breakfast more delightful. Don’t worry, as my easy blueberry muffin recipe will guide you all the way!

I started with the streusel topping that’s made with sugar, flour, cinnamon, and butter. Refrigerate the topping while you make the batter. The ultimate trick is to add sour cream and lemon zest into the batter. The sour cream made my homemade blueberry muffins moist and fluffy. Lemon zest gives them a citrusy taste to compliment the sweet acidity of blueberries.

Blueberry muffins with sour cream are always more delicious fresh out of the oven. So, it’s high time you learn how to make these blueberry muffins at home. And I guarantee you: this is the best blueberry muffin recipe you can EVER find. Enjoy blueberry sour cream muffins alongside a cup of coffee (or tea) to start your day on the right note!
