Reviews for Blueberry Streusel Muffins

I admit that I had modified this recipe: I'd used 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup softened butter, 1 egg, 1Tbsp. ground orange (Navel), and for the sifted dry ingredients, the 2-1/3 cups all-purpose flour, 4 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. salt. I used 1 cup milk SOURED with 1 Tbsp. cider vinegar, 1 tsp. vanilla extract and a full pint of fresh blueberries. For the streusel, I kept the ingredients as is. I did add 1/8 cup all-purpose flour to blueberries to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of muffins. I have to admit that these muffins DO bake best at 25 minutes-I baked a full 12-cup pan of muffins for 30 minutes to make sure that I didn't UNDERBAKE muffins. The first batch was more browned than needed to be, so the 2nd 2 pans of muffins I baked at exactly 25 minutes! I';d sampled a muffin baked at 30 minutes and FORTUNATELY, I didn't find a burnt flavor! The 25 minute muffins were definitely
MORE tender! The topping on the muffins baked at 25 minutes was quite delicate! ALSO: I got exactly 2 dozen muffins from my adjustment to this recipe!
I think this recipe IS a keeper for me! Thank you, Mary Anne McWhirter, for sharing your recipe with Taste of Home! delowenstein
Very good! I was worried that they wouldn't turn out because the batter was so thick and gluey, but they were perfect--dense and moist. For the 1/3 cup sugar in the muffin, I did half brown sugar Splenda and half white sugar. I also upped the vanilla by 1/2 tsp and added 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the batter to increase the depth of flavor. For the streusel, I replaced all the sugar with brown sugar Splenda. This recipe was a great way to showcase the gorgeous blueberries from my neighborhood farmers market!
I made them sugar free. Used 1 cup of agave syrup instead of sugar in the batter and 1/2 cup of Splenda instead of sugar in the streusel. You'd never know they were sugar free.
I have been baking for many many years and I have to say this is the best blueberry muffin recipe I have made. This is a keeper for sure!
People, muffins are not supposed to be overly sweet, they are not cupcakes.
