Orange Blueberry Streusel Muffins and Giveaway Winner

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.

    At first I was wondering what all those colours were from your muffin liners. Then I realized they were just part of the liners. Either way, these muffins look scrumptious. Love your addition of the streusel topping. Thanks for the opportunity on that giveaway. Congrats to Alisha! Have a great weekend, Biren!

      Patty, you are a sweetie for showing your hubby my blog. :) I used the Amazing Grace theme by Vladimir Prelovac but did all the modifications on my own. I changed the header, tabs, colors, and front page display. It’s a great theme!
