These are probably the best blueberry muffins I've ever had. My husband ate 3 hot and has been raving about them all day. I'm not sure how people thought there was no taste...They must have forgotten an ingredient. Don't skimp on the lemon zest, and if you don't have pastry flour, you can add 2 T cornstarch to a scant 1 C AP Flour.

This was nothing like Starbuck's Blueberry muffins. There was ABSOLUTELY no taste to the muffin at all. There has got to be a better recipe out there.

Whew! Nothing like the muffins at our Starbucks. Not even close. I threw these in the garbage.

These were good and the lemon zest really did help the blueberry flavor stand out. This muffin had a nice texture and crumb. I did dip the tops in melted butter and sugar for some of the muffins, which my husband prefers.

I *loooooooved* these (so did my dad and boyfriend!). I have to tell you, I've been searching for YEARS to find the perfect muffin recipe, consistency-wise. The pastry flour really makes this recipe. I'd never used it in muffins before, and the texture came out just like the kinds of muffins you buy at a bakery/coffeeshop. Nice and light and fluffy, and moist! I subbed dried currants for blueberries, and it came out wonderfully. I will definitely continue making/switching up this recipe for ALL muffins. :D Great recipe overall, and it works really well as a general base for so many other kinds of muffins. Thanks so much for sharing!

I didn't have a lemon, so I used an orange instead. These are so fluffy and yummy!

Yummy! Great muffin! But you really do need a muffin tin, for the paper cups! (which I don't have). I used a little less lemon grind then suggested, but they were delicious just the same.

I have been searching for the perfect blueberry muffin recipe and this is the best one so far. I only used the rind of half a lemon so the flavour wouldn't be too strong and I added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to add some depth to the flavour.

This one was just okay for me. I am a big fan of blueberry muffins, but the lemon seemed to overtake this recipe. If I ever try this one again, it would definitely be without the lemon. When I eat a blueberry muffin, I like to experience the taste of the blueberries instead of feeling like I'm eating a fruit medley.
