Note: Would you believe I’m actually listening to a Pride and Prejudice audiobook while writing this post? Hence the pink and butterflies you see in the main picture!
These muffins started with a basic muffin recipe… And soon had so many little things added to them that they were bursting with flavor and so soft and moist that you couldn’t stop eating them! The secret in them is the mixture of applesauce, yogurt and sour cream. This mixture makes them extremly moist, yet also gives them a sweet flavor with a little bit of a sour twang. Not much at all, but just the perfect amount to balance out the sweet…
In other words, you’ll love them!
2 cups white sugar
1 1/3 cup applesauce
1 t. vanilla
4 cups flour
1 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
3/4 cup sour cream
2 1/4 cup mixed berries
” … I give you leave to like him. You’ve liked many a stupider person…”
Oh Lizzy, you have such a way with words..
Oops, sorry! Forgot I was writing about muffins, not Lizzy and Jane!
You’ll want them just barely mixed in..
Don’t you love the purple swirls? I do!
While you’re waiting for your muffins, go find your Jane Austen book! At the moment in my book, Darcy and Lizzy are still at odds and find each other quite disagreeable..
Oh, and while I’m thinking about it, does anyone have a good Pride and Prejudice “sequel” that you’d recommend? One that you’ve really enjoyed?
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1 1/3 cup applesauce
- 1 t. vanilla
- 4 cups flour
- 1 t. salt
- 1 t. baking soda
- 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 2 1/4 cup mixed berries
- Start by beating together the eggs in a large bowl. Stir in the sugar and continue to beat.
- Once the sugar is mixed into the eggs, stir in the applesauce, yogurt, and sour cream. After mixing it all together well, dump in the vanilla.
- In another large bowl, mix together the flour, salt and baking soda. Then add it into the egg mixture.
- Now go run and find your berries. You’ll want to rinse them off and set on a paper towel to dry. Pat them very gently and then fold into the batter.
- You’ll want them just barely mixed in..
- Drop the batter into muffins tins with liners. (24 muffins) I filled them about 2/3 full. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
- So now your muffins are done and you can serve them with a little bit of whipped cream if you like and a cup of tea.. Or just grab a couple and a glass of milk!
