Blueberry Muffins

"These used to be served at the Jordon Marsh department stores(now Macy's). On our shopping trips, my sister and I always made sure we stopped at their restaurant and had one of these blueberry muffins with a cup of coffee...they are delicious!"

    Recipe worked as written. Unfortunately the results were too much like cake instead of the texture of a muffin. Recipe (#22656) with lemon instead of vanilla makes a superior muffin. Even though the ingredients are pretty much the same, the technique yields a better crumb.

    I had a ton of blueberries to use and wanted to try a different blueberry muffin recipe. I found this one and after making these muffins, I threw away the blueberry muffin recipe I had been using for several years. These are delicious!! I did find however that the recipe made 18 normal sized muffins instead of the 12 listed on the recipe...which was great because that just meant more muffins! They didn't last long.

    Excellent recipe. I like this one better than the one in the Cook's Best Recipe cookbook. I didn't crush the berries, either because I didn't want purple muffins. My kids love these. Thanks for posting.

    These are without a doubt the best blueberry muffins ever! I made 7 jumbo muffins, and they took 37 minutes .. my husband really loved them and said they were the best he ever had .. thank you!!

    Very good muffins. Not too sweet and very nice flavor. Mine was overbaked at 30 minutes. The next time, I will go with 20-25 minutes.

    I made this recipe with whole wheat pastry flour instead of the all-purpose and maple syrup instead of the sugar. I also topped them with lemon glaze (2/3 cup powdered sugar mixed with 2-3 Tbsp. lemon juice) and a sprinkle of pearl sugar (from IKEA). They were delicious and stayed moist.

    I will not rate this recipe because I don't think is fair to rate when a number of ingredients are altered. I wanted to make this recipe parve (dairy-free) so I substituted milk for almond milk, butter for a buttery organic spread and used only half the sugar and combined with splenda. The muffins were very good looking and once they came out of the oven they were quite fluffily. After 1 day the started to get a little hard and they kind of shrunk. I want to imagine that this was due to the change of ingredients. We loved them anyway. I am sure if you don't alter they will be fluffier and may last a couple of days. When I ever a have a new surplus of berries I will try as posted. Anyway thank you very much for this recipe.

    These are great muffins. Easy recipe to follow and the dough was easy to work with. I adjusted the recipe for the second batch and used 1 cup of chocolate chips instead of the berries... also a great taste and was a big hit. Thank you for the great recipe!

    These were delicious. I made them exactly like the recipe but next time (and there will be many) I will use margarine instead of butter. To me the butter kind of overpowered the taste of the blueberries. It's just a personal preference. The texture and other flavors were perfect! Thanks, Nancy

    I thought they were okay, but my boyfriend seemed to think they were the greatest thing ever, so I averaged our ratings. I thought they were somewhat bland. Changes I made: I added 1.5 t cinnamon, used powdered sugar instead of regular to sprinle on top, and oil instead of butter.
