Sour Cream Poppy Seed Muffins

Amy Alusa


Sour cream gives muffins an unusual texture and an especially nice flavor. These are some of our favorites, and I like to make them and take them to my friends as gifts, early on a Saturday or Sunday morning. These are among my friend's and family's favorites. I usually double the recipe, as when I am taking some to someone else, my family gets more than a little excited to see them ALL go out the door. I may get lynched~! Enjoy!
