Easy and yummy! Organic blueberries were on sale, so I bought some. I wanted to find a box of cornbread mix that didn't have hydrogenated fat in it and Krusteaz fit the bill. However, the box was over 14 oz., so I doubled all the ingredients, except I used 1/2 C honey. When I finished filling the cups, the cups were full and I had enough for 5 more plain muffins. I cooked them 15 minutes, bcz the cups were full. Interestingly, the plain muffins rose up, but the blueberry ones spread out. I had mine with a little margarine. Next time I will use paper cups for easier storage in the fridge or freezer.
