"Made as stated but cut the blackberries in half. Next time I would add some vanilla.

I got 12 muffins from this recipe."

"Great recipe! Made as directed with one cup fresh berries. Very light, cupcake like muffin. Devoured within two days, good warm or next day. Used paper lined cupcake wrappers. Looked beautiful. Recipe can be altered to accommodate different berries! As a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home I enjoy recipes that use simple ingredients that I easily have on hand."

"These were good but need vanilla. Next time I make them I will add more berries, and a little more sugar too. And I'm not fond of baking at 375 so I recommend 350 oven for a little longer."

"I was looking for a simple but tasty blackberry muffin recipe and stumbled upon this one. It is easy, most ingredients you have in your kitchen, and they are delicious. I had blackberries in my freezer I picked out of our yard in the fall in the Cascades in Wa. It only calls for 2 cups, but believe me when I say they are so many bites of your berry it is unbelievable. I tried regular and large muffins and found the regular ones were much better in many ways. I cooked this recipe in the Wolfgang Pressure Oven and it was mouth watering! Like any recipe, adjust to your health needs accordingly and test it. My next batch will be made with coconut sugar. You will not be disappointed in this one!!!"

"I made these today. A batch of blackberry and a batch of blueberry. Very Good. Tho we have to watch our cholesterol I had to adapt a bit. Used Smart Balance instead of butter. Only used 1 cup of sugar and half of that was sweetener. For the salt, I used No Salt. *****"

"What a pain to sign up! I had to put a rather rude fake address in. Like I'm going to give my real address and suffer with crap mail!

Other than the messed up sign up sheet, these muffins rocked! I added less than a cup of sugar, and half end the berries, but the were moist and addictive! My kids loved hem too!"
