The Best Blueberry Muffins

"These are truly the best blueberry muffins I have ever made. I think that the secret is using honey instead of sugar for the sweetener. My daughter, who hates honey, begs me to make these!"

    Has anyone struggled to get all the batter into 12 muffins? I ended up adding 2 small Pyrex cups since I still had batter despite filling beyond 3/4.

    Very good, the honey lemon is a great combo and not too sweet. Baked at 350 for 20 minutes. perfect.

    Really good! I adjusted my temp to 350 and time to 25 minutes, based on someone else's review. I substituted a powdered-lemon product called True Lemon because I had no lemon zest on hand. They are not overly sweet, and they make a great breakfast food.

    These are good but I think next time I will bake them at 350 for 18 minutes.The sides were a little overdone at 18 min. at 400.Maybe its my oven.

    I added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and topped them with turbinado sugar. They are delicious!!


<p>I live with my husband, four cats, and a sweet mutt named Jada in Scarborough, Ontario, where I work as an elementary school administrative assistant. I have a 31 year old daughter who lives with her boyfriend in nearby Don Mills, along with my sweet granddogs, Frankie and Turbo. I would have to say that my passion is animals, since I have so many of them! <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br />If I had a month off work to do what I please, I would first catch up on my sleep and then just have fun - see a few movies and maybe take a couple of short trips - something that wouldn't break the bank - lol!</p>
