Muffin Mondays - Blueberry Muffins



Until, the holiday of Passover is finished, I will do little baking.  We are clearing out the house of certain food items, one being flour.  For those of you who do not know about Passover, it is a week when we do not eat any leavened products.  I will be glad to fill in the spaces, at another time.  Right now, we are making blueberry muffins. 



Blueberry Sour Cream Muffins


Ingredients:

1 egg
1 cup sugar
4 tablespoons Canola oil
1  cups sou cream

1/4 cup orange juice
2 cups gluten-free flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup almonds
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup ground nuts to sprinkle on top

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place liners in a muffin pan. 

In a medium bowl whisk the egg for about 1/2 a minute. 
Add the sugar and whisk until thick, 30 seconds.

Add the vanilla extract and then the oil, mixing after each addition. Add the sour cream in and mix to combine.

In a separate bowl mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.  Mix blueberries with 1 tablespoon of flour.  Add the berries and flour plus almonds to batter and mix to combine. Add in the liquid mixture and mix just until combined. Do not overmix! 

Sprinkle nuts on top of batter.

Note that this is a thick batter. Divide the batter evenly between the twelve muffin cups. Bake approximately 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. 

Place muffins on a wire rack to cool.
