Here's what you need:
1-1/2 sticks butter, unsalted, at room temperature
1-1/2 cups sugar
3 extra large eggs, at room temperature
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
8 oz. sour cream
1/4 cup milk, I use whole milk for baking unless otherwise noted
2-1/2 cups flour, all-purpose, unbleached
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 pint fresh blueberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place paper liners into 12 jumbo or about 16 regular muffin cups and set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer or a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Add the eggs one at a time, then add the sour cream, milk, and vanilla.
Add premixed dry ingredients and beat until just combined.
In a separate bowl add 1 Tbl. flour to the blueberries and stir to coat. This keeps them from sinking to the bottom of the muffins while baking. Fold the blueberries into the batter using a rubber spatula.
Sprinkle each with a little bit of sugar and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. I start testing at around 23 minutes.
Serve warm or at room temperature. YUM!
Go make these now!
