More Muffins- Blueberry

I've been making mom has been making muffins.......hmmm it must be muffin season or something!  Well, it is back to school season here and it is a nice little lunch snack to have ready.......or to have with a cup of your favourite hot drink.  This is the third batch of muffins that my mom has made from this recipe in the last two weeks.  If you have some fresh or frozen blueberries lying might want to give these a try!
Blueberry Muffins
1/3 cup white sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup + 2 heaping tbsp sour cream
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp yoghurt or milk kefir
1 tsp lemon zest
1 egg
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup blueberries
Preheat oven to 425F.
Cream butter and sugar until creamy.  Add sour cream, yoghurt, lemon juice, zest and egg.  Beat well.  In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and berries.  Add dry ingredients to wet gently mixing in by hand in 3-4 increments.  Mix only to combine and take care not to over mix.  Batter will be lumpy.  Spoon into 12 lined muffin cups and sprinkle tops with turbinado sugar.  Bake for 8 minutes at 425F, then reduce heat to 350F and bake a further 10-12 minutes.  Bake  until tops spring back when lightly touched.

I can smell them, they look so good!
I think it's just that time of year where the leave change and the cooler weather makes you want to stand near your oven and bake away the day.

I know what you mean.....I've been pouring over my fall and winter cook books looking for cold weather foods and baking to warm the kitchen.
