How to make sour cream chocolate chip muffins
Step 1: Whisk together the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl: flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Step 2: In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, sour cream, vanilla extract, whole milk, sugar, and melted butter until smooth.
Step 3: Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until just combined, do not over mix.
Step 4: Fold in the chocolate chips gently with a rubber spatula.
Step 5: Line a regular muffin tin with 12 parchment paper muffin liners.
Distribute the chocolate chip muffin batter into the cups, then sprinkle coarse sugar and additional chocolate chips over the tops.
Step 6: Bake the muffins at 425 degrees for 5 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees (do not open the oven door or remove the muffins)
Bake at 350 for another 13-15 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Starting the muffins at a high heat gets that nice high rise and crackly top.
If you need a great muffin for breakfast, snacks, bake sales, holiday mornings, this is it!
Everyone will love how soft they are and bursting with chocolate chips in every bite.
