Cider Vinegar Blueberry Muffins

One of the very first recipes I tried when I started to bake egg-free (in 2008) was these vegan blueberry muffins. I made these light and airy muffins from the Joy of Vegan Baking book. Like many other recipes in that book, this one turned out perfect, and I have been making it ever since with a couple of variations of my own. I never thought I needed or would like another blueberry muffin recipe ever.

Cream Muffins

That is until I ended up with a tub of sour cream. That story for another time. While browsing for recipes using sour cream, I came across these berry cream muffins recipe, a chocolate muffin recipe, and an easy mac ‘n’ cheese recipe.

I had enough sour cream to try all three recipes, and fortunately, all three recipes didn’t disappoint me. The muffins and mac ‘n’ cheese were so good that I think I will start buying sour cream just to make these.

Cream Bluebrry Muffins

This blueberry sour cream recipe is a pretty straightforward one, very easy to bake. It’s just a mixing and pouring type of recipe. I substituted eggs with flax eggs.

Another change I incorporated was increasing the quantity of sugar a little bit. I did right by doing so otherwise, the muffins would have been a tad less sweet.

Blueberry Cream Muffins Want to bake light and tender blueberry muffins? The combination of sour cream and apple cider vinegar is the secret to getting these airy blueberry muffins. Try it, and you won’t be disappointed.
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sunflower oil
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flaxseed + 1/2 cup water)
  • 1 and 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blueberries
  1. Preheat oven to 400F/220C. Line a muffin tin with paper muffin liners and lightly grease it with non-stick cooking spray. Toss blueberries in a tablespoon of flour and set them aside so that they won’t sink to the bottom of the muffins.
  2. Sift together the dry ingredients in a large bowl and set them aside.
  3. In another medium-size bowl, beat together the oil, flax eggs, and sugar first, and then add the other ingredients and beat well.
  4. Stir the wet mix into the dry flour mix. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  5. Use a 1/3rd cup measurement and fill the muffin tin cavities with the batter until it’s 3/4ths full. Bake at 400F for 5-7 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350F/180C and bake for another 15-17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven and set it on a wire rack to cool. After about 10 minutes, remove the muffins from the pan and leave them on the wire rack to cool completely before storing.
  1. After eating the muffins, my mom’s immediate reaction was, “it’s so light, has a perfect texture, and the right amount of sweetness.” The kids loved it too.
My Notes:
  1. One can use any other berry, fruit, or other add-ons instead of blueberries. If using frozen blueberries, do not thaw. Instead, use it directly from the freezer. If you thaw, the color will bleed, and the muffins’ color won’t look appetizing.
