Blackberry Muffins

We love blackberry muffins. Β 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! We think you will love the flavor that lemon zest and nutmeg brings to these warm and tasty blackberry muffins!

    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?

      Thank you for this feedback. The batter for our muffins is a thick one. Did they bake up well? Let us know. Thank you.
