What a joy to set out a basket of these moist blueberry muffins topped with a super streusel on the brunch buffet. People rave when they taste them for the first time. —Mary Anne McWhirter, Pearland, Texas

"This was a waste of fresh blueberries. The mix is like a ball of glue, not nearly enough liquid or oil maybe. Doubled the milk just to stir the batter. I'm not sure how this recipe has a "4 star" rating but I won't use this recipe again."

"Made these turned out okay. Needs more sugar and cooking temperature seemed too high.I did not cook them as long. I will add more sugar and change cooking temp and time next time"

"wasted my fresh blueberries on this awful recipe. Got an F in my book. The few people that loved them as is must have been relatives."

"Where do I add the cup of milk? Batter is so thick, you can't fold blueberries in. Won't use this recipe again."

"This recipe was completely off. This does not have enough sugar in the muffin itself, the cook temp seemed off, and the streusel was disappointing. These are not good muffins at all."

"Temp of 375 WAY too high. These burnt on the bottom after 23 minutes. I agree with others that more sugar is needed for the basic recipe. Also I would try brown sugar on top. The recipe made 1.5 dozen. TOH, why do you not test and edit these recipes? So disappointed."

"These muffins are great! But if you eat the top and the streusel and then the stump then the stump would be bland, but the streusel makes the muffin."

"This recipe was delicious. Almost a cup of sugar in this recipe is plenty for 12 muffins. The strudel topping was crisp, mildly spiced and delicious. I made them, following the recipe exactly, using paper baking cups. Batter was easy to mix, with minimal ingredients. My blueberries were big and sweet and the muffins turned out wonderfully. I can't believe people said they were awful or not enough sugar!

Maybe their blueberries were inferior (bland) or they are used to commercial products which use enormous amounts of sugar. I'm not sure, but these were perfect. I've also made them dairy free, substituting in Almond milk and Earth Balance. Outstanding. Keep up the good work Mary Anne!"
