Blueberry Blackberry Cream Muffins

Yeah! It's berry season! I love berries and I bought so many this past weekend. I cannot possibly eat them all so I had to find another use for them. This is my favorite blueberry muffin recipe so I used this recipe and added blackberries to the batter, along with the blueberries and I also added some oatmeal/brown sugar streusel. The results are amazing! I used my jumbo muffins tins that have crowns on them. I didn't even use paper liners but I sprayed the tins well and the muffins popped right out after baking. I baked these muffins on an upper rack and I put a double baking sheet underneath the muffin pans so the muffin bottoms would not get too brown. They turned out a perfect & even golden brown. This recipe includes a full 2 cups of sour cream. The first time I made them I thought that sounded like a lot of sour cream but it blends in beautifully helps create a nice moist muffin.

I am so happy to see your recipe and I like the topping as they are so delicious looking. I want to buy one of those bigger pans so I can make some giant muffins this summer with the abundance of all the fresh berries in the markets. I mad a muffin last week and will post friday that was so buttery and packed with calories in case anyone wanted to put on weight because they are too thin...oh sure!
