Berry Sour Cream Muffins

School's out and that means my teenage son is home all day, rummaging through the cabinets and fridge, grumbling about being hungry.   I like to keep some sweet and savory things on hand to cover both bases.    Muffins are a go-to.   They come together so quickly, and I can make them when I have time and freeze them.

I pinned these muffins a while back from Taste of Home, and since strawberries are in season in NH right now, that's what I used for the fruit.  I'll make another batch in a few weeks with blueberries.   I love that the recipe calls for tossing the fruit in the flour, that's a great way to keep all the berries from sinking to the bottom.   I also like to sprinkle the tops of muffins with raw sugar, it gives them a nice crunch.

No grumbling from the son about these.   Next time I'll do half the batch as minis, they'll be great for on the go snacks and way better than the store bought ones.   Thank you Linda G for sharing your recipe!

There have been so many fantastic recipes shared this week, my to-make list has at least doubled!  Links to their contributions for today are are the bottom of the post.  Don't forget to enter for your chance to win a $25 gift basket from Cabot!  Thanks again to From Gate to Plate and Cooking with Carlee for hosting :)

                           Berry Sour Cream Muffins

  4 cups all-purpose flour
  2 cups sugar
  1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  1 teaspoon baking soda
  1 teaspoon salt
  3 cups fresh or frozen raspberries or blueberries (I used strawberries)
  4 large eggs -- lightly beaten
  2 cups Cabot sour cream -- (16 ounces)
  1 cup canola oil
  1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  Raw sugar for sprinkling on tops of muffins before baking.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add berries and toss gently. Combine the eggs, sour cream, oil and vanilla; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full.  Sprinkle the tops with raw sugar, if desired. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to a wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: about 2 dozen.
