Blueberry Space Ship Muffins

Yesterday I made muffins for Tuesday morning breakfast and a Monday night snack. I used the sour cream muffin recipe, added a tablespoon of lemon juice and a small package of blueberries.

Dry Ingredients
2 cups flour 
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Wet Ingredients
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
2/3 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 stick butter (melted)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tbsp lemon juice
Blueberries to taste

Whisk together dry ingredients, then wisk together wet ingredients. Combine wet and dry with a few quick strokes until the batter is just formed. Bake at 350 or 375 for 10-12 minutes, or until you can stick a fork in the middle and have it come out clean.

The one mistake I made was that I misread the recipe from the cookbook. It actually calls for one half stick of butter in two separate paragraphs. But last night I missed the second half stick and shorted the recipe. So the muffins came out more like blueberry biscuits. They were still very good.

This is supposed to make just 12 muffins, but we had extra. So we had to resort using Lauren and Lisa's backup muffin pan.

I don't know why they have a NASA space shuttle muffin pan, or where they got it from, but it leads to all sorts of inappropriate jokes. Anytime it makes an appearance I feel like I'm watching a live taping of The View. It is a nightmare. 

Why do women have to be so immature?

ha ha ha ha....that pan is perplexes me that 1.) someone even thought to make space shuttle shaped muffins tins 2.) Lauren found such an item & bought it.

Rachel, I just wanted you to know that 1.) I agree 2.) I didn't find or buy it, my roommate did, but it is pretty hilarious to watch people's reaction to spaceship muffins!

whoa...those are NOT spaceships. I'm not sure if those muffins are family approved.
