  1. Very good and easy to make. Thanks for sharing!
  2. This is the best ever muffin recipe. Better than any bakery. I add more fresh berries just to add more flavor.
  3. I have been trying different blueberry muffin recipes all of my married life and none have met my expectations, until now. The bursts of cinnamon and the extra light and fluffy texture make these a 5 star winner in our house. Thank you for sharing.
  4. Oh my these are just wonderful. Light and lovely flavour with just the right amount of sweetness. I served these Christmas morning and everyone loved them. Thank you for sharing.
  5. I have been searching for a really good blueberry muffin recipe for a long time. I have finally found it! I made these last night and they came out perfect. They have the right sweetness, texture and came out light and with a nice height and shape. If you have also been searching, give these a try.


  1. This is a GREAT muffin recipe!! I aboultey loved it! Every bite is full of flavor! The only change that I made was I used saskatoon berries instead of blueberries. They still worked out great!!! Thanks very much for this awesome recipe!


Just another crazy mother/wife that "manages" to work full time, care for 3 teens AND love to cook and bake!! I am constantly searching for recipes that are healthy, fast, fun and kid-friendly. DH claims that I can NEVER follow a recipe without tweaking it. Sigh. I try really hard to include my tweaks when I write my reviews for all those other recipe tweakers. If my tweaks don't work then I will review your recipe without a rating and indicate my tweaks failure NOT the recipe!!! Best kids comment: My kids asked for copies of all my recipes, so when they get married they can prepare them! Pet Peeve: Reviewers that don't include comments on their reviews. Also, reviewers that are not fair when they give their reviews - if you have always hated carrots then please don't bother rating the carrot recipe!
