Sometimes I get the craving for a soft and tender chocolate chip muffin, this recipe fits the bill perfectly. Sour cream combines with the traditional ingredients to give these muffins great lift which keeps them tender and moist. This recipe whips up quickly, you could make a batch for an after school snack or to take to friends house for tea in under an hour.

Chocolate chip muffins

Muffin Magic

Nothing fancy but I just love how the ingredients combine to create muffin magic. These would also be very easy to customize,swap out the chocolate chips for berries or nuts.  The base batter is just so good that any flavor combinations will just highlight the vanilla notes in the batter.
