How to turn a muffin into a delicious dessert?

Muffins are scrumptious solo acts, but add a dollop of sour cream and a spoonful of your favorite jam, and voila! swirl of jam, and voilà! You’ve transformed a humble treat into a delicious dessert in less than 5 minutes!

1. Warm It Up: Start by warming your muffin. This process can bring out its rich flavors, making it soft and ultra-inviting. Pop it into an oven preheated to 350°F (175°C) for about 5 minutes or microwave it for 15-20 seconds until it’s just warm.

2. The Magic of Sour Cream: Now, this might sound a tad unconventional to some, but a dollop of sour cream can add a wonderful tangy richness. The cool creaminess of the sour cream juxtaposes beautifully with the warmth of the muffin, providing a texture and flavor contrast that’s both surprising and delightful.

3. Jam On: When it comes to jam, quality matters. A premium jam like Blake Hill Preserves’ Apricot & Orange adds a touch of fruity brightness, while their Tart Cherry with Cardamom and Port offers a depth of flavor that’s both tart and sophisticated. The layers of flavor – from the muffin’s sweetness, the sour cream’s tang, and the jam’s fruity notes – create a medley of sensations in every bite.

Alternative Ideas:

Drizzle with honey or maple syrup for added sweetness.

Sprinkle with toasted nuts for a crunchy element.

Add a few slices of fruit or a couple of berries to match the jam of your choice.
