Blueberry Muffin Tops

"You don't need any muffin top pans for this you can use regular size muffin tins they just won't be as full or as wide --- I have only used fresh blueberries for this so I am not certain if it would work using frozen, I have made this using dried cranberries, any dried fruit would work fine."

    A disaster, they didn't raise, and I followed the recipe to the T. I wasted much time and resources trying the recipe. they were hardly garbage worthy. Not sure what happened

    Very simple recipe. They came out great. It was my first time making any muffins and they were tasty! I did not choose to make topping

    Perfection! We loved these blueberry-filled muffin tops. I haven't tried any new recipes of yours lately as I have been constantly repeating recipes of yours that are my all time favorites now. I wanted to try something new from your recipes and am really glad I did. Great recipe and I will make sure to review it at Kittencal's Kitchen . I hope others will try these moist scrumptious muffins. (I added a little extra suggestion as I love sweet muffins).

    Again - you quenched my sweet tooth today! Even though my blueberries had seen better days these were a treat for a party I popped into and they were welcomed with open arms! I need to be patient however as the tops came off some of them when I took them out of the oven. Must let them cool a little 1st. I also ommitted the cinnamon as I feel this overpowers all that goes near it!
