Prune And Sour Cream Muffins

Pin It


This is a great tasting little muffin that my neighbors (and I!) loved.  You can’t really tell that the fruit are prunes because they are in small pieces.  The cinnamon and walnut topping adds a lot of dimension and flavor too.

I made these 20 years ago and just recently converted them to gluten free.  If you don’t have issues with gluten, you can just use “regular” flour in place of the GF Flour Mix.

These mix up like any other muffin- the only thing slightly unusual is that you add the prune pieces to the dry flour mixture and stir them around in there so they stay separate and don’t clump together.

I know I don’t usually use sour cream in my recipes but it tastes great in these muffins.  I’m sure you could substitute yogurt for the sour cream if you would rather.

I think you will love these muffins! 

As usual, I always make my muffins in mini size muffin tins.  This recipe makes 36 of that small size muffin.

I shared this recipe with Full Plate Thursdays at Miz Helen’s Country Cottage, Simple Lives Thursday at A Little Bit Of Spain In Iowa, Pennywise Platter Thursday at The Nourishing Gourmet, Sweet Tooth Friday at Alli “N Son, Gluten Free Wednesdays at The Gluten Free Homemaker, Foodie Friday at Designs By Gollum, Fight Back Friday at Food Renegade, Finer Things Friday at The Finer Things In Life

    Hi Andrea,
    This muffin would be delicious. Those prunes would make the muffins very moist plus giving them a special flavor, great recipe. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope to see you next week. Have a wonderful week end!

    Mini muffins are my favorite way to make them. These sound moist and delicious.

    Andrea, those look really good. I’d have to find a dairy free substitute for the sour cream. I haven’t looked for one specifically, but if there’s not a sour cream sub, I could probably use coconut milk yogurt. Thanks for linking up.

    Thank you Linda! I’m sure the coconut milk yogurt would be great in these!
