Muffins are quick and easy to make. There is no need to bring out the huge mixer and it can be done in less than an hour and this includes washing up. Besides, it is a great breakfast item and a nice change from the regular slices of bread. As I had a few oranges lying around, I decided to incorporate it somehow. Blueberries are a favorite at our house and so in they went. This recipe is a keeper as we like the combination of orange and blueberries. The sour cream makes it really moist.

Before we move on to the recipe, I would like to thank all of you for your well wishes and for participating in my 1st Blog Anniversary Giveaway. I couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you for your encouragement and for cheering me on. The winner was chosen using the Random Number Generator in the order of comments on the post. The autographed copy of The Minnesota Table…drum roll please…goes to Alisha of The Ardent Epicure! Congratulations Alisha! I hope you enjoy the book as much as I do. Please email me with your address so that I can send you the book soon.

Now, let’s start cooking!
