"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."

"Great recipe. I just tweaked a little by mixing blueberries with sour cream first and adding about 1/4 tsp of pure orange extract to it before adding remaining wet ingredients and then dry. Made moist flavorful muffins. Thanks for this recipe."

"I made these yesterday, and they are very good. I used a medley of frozen fruits that I had in the freezer, so that made it easier to decide which berries to use! My daughter loves to eat them for a snack, so that makes me feel good to! Thanks again!"

"I have also made these for years. I just made another batch. However, my recipe calls for 2 tsp. baking powder . That is the only difference. The recipe does make a nice sized muffin. 24 or more per batch.  I bake mine 385 degrees about 20 minutes. 400 is just too hot."
