Reviews for Berry Cream Muffins
"I made them with strawberries and sprinkled a bit of raw sugar on top of each before baking. Excellent recipe!"
"I added a few teaspoons of lemon zest to the raspberries and they were delicious!"
"These were really good. I cut the recipe in half as there is only 2 in my house. Will make these again but when I half the recipe I will add a few more berries instead of 1 1/2 cups will make it 1 2/3 or 1 3/4 as there were not quite enough berries"
"These are fantastic! I made them with raspberries, they were incredible!"
"These muffins have been a family favorite since the recipe first appeared in 1995. Whether I use a mix of raspberries and blueberries or, in the summer, blackberries from my blackberry patch, Berry Cream Muffins are always very moist and flavorful. This recipe is a real treasure!"
"I have been making these wonderful muffins for years. Always use my largest bowl and usually get between 30 and 36 good sized muffins. Meant to hit the gold stars!"
"Very moist, yummy, and delicious!"
"These are just what I was looking for in a moist, flavorful muffin. I made some small " shooters" for a bite-sized treat. Maybe next time some lemon zest....."
"I have made these so many times and every one I give them to, loves them. I make these four times and more a year. The best ever! Thank you TASTE of HOME!"
"Terrific muffins to make for early breakfast - measure out dry ingredients the night before and mix up liquid that morning while oven is heating up. Best eaten that day since the berries tend to make the muffins somewhat soggy."
