Blackberry Muffins

We love blackberry muffins.  The bright color and flavor just bursts from these slightly tart, slightly sweet muffins of joy! As a result of using sour cream, these muffins will turn out so moist! Saving a few blackberries to place on top brings a bright look and a burst of flavor to them!

Without a doubt, we think the zest of lemon and nutmeg just take these blackberry muffins to the next level. Oh, and savor every bite of these blackberry muffins made with fresh Driscoll’s Berries!

    Hi! Just wondering do I add the baking soda to the dry mix? I didn’t see it in the directions. I might need a cocktail!

    I just made these muffins, and they were rather dense and heavy. I am wondering if the amount of heavy cream (one teaspoon) is correct? The batter was very thick, and I am wondering if more liquid would have helped?
