Sour Cream Cinnamon Muffins

When it comes to baking, sometimes I find it fun to let the ingredients guide me. Like these gorgeous sour cream cinnamon muffins. Our adorably delicious friends, Chris & Karen, from over at The Pêche, stopped by to borrow our spare laptop the other day. As a thank you, Chris brought us a bunch of goodies when he picked up the computer, including Humboldt Fog goat cheese (nom!) and Green Valley Organics Sour Cream (double nom!).

You might be thinking I’m off on a tangent again – who gets a surplus of sour cream and immediately jumps to baking? I never claimed to be a by-the-book sorta girl, what can I say?

It might help you to know I also had these Cinnamon Flav-R-Bites from my adventures in the land of King Arthur Flour. Sour Cream and Cinnamon? Maybe not an obvious flavor combination, but I promise you – a delectable one!

Mary Jane from KAF called these cinnamon bites “rabbit food”. They look like little pellets. It’s not the chocolate chip consistency you might be imagining. Instead, they’re like concentrated little nuggets of pure cinnamon. Let them sit in your batter for 10-15 minutes before you bake the muffins up. They’ll soften and become concentrated little bursts of cinnamon throughout the muffins.

If you don’t want to let the batter sit, that’s okay too – the cinnamon bites stay crunchy, and add a cinnamon burst with a nut-like crunch.

Sanjeeta, I purchased those liners on the Bake It Pretty website. They appear to be out of stock, except for the mini yellow ones. http://www.bakeitpretty.com/categories/Baking-Cups/Specialty-Baking-Cups/

These sound wonderful. I like the same kind of preserves, except I have a thing for the fig!!! I'm going to have to check out the cinnamon bits...Never seen them!

A cupcake carrier would mean my husband could take my cupcakes in to work, which would mean I wouldn't eat them all. Win win!

I love muffins and these look wonderful! Also, a cupcake carrier is a genius purchase. I always say I should get one, and never do. Instead I end up cutting boxes and lining them with foil...you would think I would learn.... Aimee
