Clever Tricks, Tips and Hints …

 

  • I used “lite” sour cream in this recipe because I am always aware of those sneaky calories, however, regular sour cream can be easily substituted.

 

  • When whisking the wet ingredients together, an egg whisk will ensure the mixture is really smooth, although a fork will also work if a whisk isn’t available.

 

  • Allow muffins to completely cool before attempting to remove wrappers, otherwise the muffin will stick to the wrapper.

 

  • I love the “Creative Gourmet” Frozen Raspberries as they tend to be nice and small and prevent the muffin from becoming soggy. Fresh raspberries are perfect for this recipe also but the frozen variety give a fantastic result and are so much cheaper, particularly if you find them on special at the supermarket. I always have frozen raspberries in the freezer as I use them a lot in smoothies.

 

  • These muffins are suitable to freeze or can be stored in an air-tight container for approximately 3 days … if they last that long!
