Sour Cream Poppy Seed Muffins
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!
1Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture.
2In a separate bowl, combine sour cream and remaining 3 ingredients. Add to the dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened. Spoon batter into greased muffin tins; filling 2/3 to 3/4 full (depending on whether you want them to raise barely to the top or to have a dome on top.
3Bake for 18-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans immediately. Cool on wire rack.
