Even though our New Year’s Day festivities are subdued, we still make them special. Quality time in the kitchen with my daughter baking these delish Very Berry Muffins made with Daisy Sour Cream is the perfect way to wrap-up the holiday season.

Whether I need just a dollop of Daisy or the full cup required to make these yummy berry muffins, Daisy Sour Cream makes it so simple!

I’ve been joking with my family and friends that my 4-year-old, Kara, needs to start her own baking blog. She really adores helping me in the kitchen and I treasure the memories we’re making in the process!

While it’s certainly fun for the whole family to get involved with preparing meals, it’s also a great opportunity to teach our kids the importance of cooking at home.

These easy berry muffins are really easy to make, and as I said, they make a wonderful holiday brunch. The secret to the moistness in these muffins is the sour cream!

Over the years, I’ve found that I almost always love any baked recipe that calls for sour cream!

While my Very Berry Muffins are definitely sweet, they aren’t too sweet, which is a really nice change following a week of Christmas-treat decadence.

Store your leftover muffins in an airtight container—they make a great grab and go breakfast as you head back to school and work!

While I’m a little sad to see the holiday season wind down, I’m so grateful for the time that I’ve had with my family.

I’m also super excited to embark on a new year full of new adventures!

I hope you’ll give my Very Berry Muffins a try. Don’t forget to pin this recipe now so you don’t forget it, later!

Blueberry Muffins

Buttermilk, instead of regular milk, is the secret-ingredient superstar in this easy blueberry muffins recipe&mdash it makes them extra tender and fluffy. Pair that with heaps of fresh blueberries and a sprinkle of sugar on top, and each bite becomes light and airy with a crackly top and bursts of berries inside. Perfect for Mother&rsquos Day brunch or as an easy breakfast idea, our best blueberry muffins will be an instant family hit.

Blueberry Muffin ingredients

The ingredients for this recipe are similar to any other baking recipe. In addition to baking powder, salt, butter, and sugar, here&rsquos what you need:

-All-purpose flour: This type of flour keeps the muffins light and fluffy (like a cake) while still providing some structure. You can swap out some of the flour for whole-wheat flour, but it will affect the texture and taste.

-Freshly grated nutmeg: Whole nutmeg, freshly grated, has so much flavor and adds a subtle spiciness to this recipe. If you&rsquove never experimented with whole spices before, you&rsquore in for a treat!

-Blueberries: The best part! This recipe doesn&rsquot skimp on fresh blueberries. Be sure to toss them in flour before adding them to the batter, which helps to absorb some of the fruit's liquid and makes them less likely to sink.

-Eggs: We use one large egg plus one large egg yolk, which provides extra richness.

-Vanilla extract: Blueberry and vanilla are a match made in heaven. A full teaspoon and a half makes sure the flavor really comes through.

-Buttermilk: The acid in buttermilk brings a subtle tang to balance the sweetness of this recipe and helps keep the muffins tender and moist.

-Turbinado sugar: This type of sugar has dark, coarse granules. Sprinkled on top of the batter before baking, it provides an irresistible crunch to the finished muffin.

The World's Best Recipes for Blueberry Muffins

There are many different ways to make blueberry muffins, and we've experimented with dozens of methods to bring you the best blueberry muffin recipes. Our favorite blueberry muffins are fresh, moist, sweet, and most of all, delicious!

Double Blueberry Streusel Muffins - These are my favorite blueberry muffins! They are bursting with flavor from the smashed blueberries along with the whole blueberries. The cinnamon-sugar mixture on top gives these muffins a delightful sweetness and gives them a nice appearance.

Country Style Blueberry Muffins - Using cake flour in this recipe ensures that these blueberry muffins come out moist and sweet each time.

Triple Berry Muffins - Blueberries, raspberries and strawberries combine in a delightful way in these muffins. The raspberries add a little tang to the sweet flavor of the muffins.

Blueberry Crumble - This is an easy-to-make recipe since the Blueberry Crumble is microwaved instead of baked in an oven. This is best served with some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Oat Blueberry Bread - This bread is a hearty, cake-like bread that I really enjoyed. It has a crumbly texture that melts in your mouth.

Blueberry Scones - These blueberry scones are rich and creamy. They are great for brunches and bridal or baby showers. These can be served with or without the Lemon Glaze drizzled over the top, depending on personal preference.

When you drizzle this cake with a powdered sugar glaze (powdered sugar, tiny bit of vanilla, a little milk), it is a fancy, delicious dessert to serve.

Blueberry Crisp - This was wonderful, and everyone enjoyed it! I baked it in a 8''x8'' baking dish, but it would also be good for in 4 individual soufflé cups.

Blueberry Cobbler - This cobbler tastes best if you serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of each serving. Delicious!

Variations for Blueberry Muffins

If you’re in the mood for a twist, feel free to add a very ripe mashed banana into the batter. I’ve done that with delicious results.

Mix up your berries with raspberries or strawberries for an amazing flavor combination. For a healthy boost, toss in some finely chopped roasted nuts or seeds.

These big blueberry muffins are onto something – they contain the perfect base batter. My mind is swirling with berry ideas to twist this muffin up. But then again, these Big Blueberry Muffins are so phenomenal, I’ll probably never change a thing.
