"Very good recipe, loaded with berries (I used huckleberries for the blueberries). I made six jumbo muffins and about twelve mini muffins. I used coarse sugar on top which gave a nice bit of crunch."

"This recipe was perfect! The only changes that I made were substituting half whole wheat flour and using sugar in the raw on top. I don't ever buy buttermilk so I just did a lemon juice/milk mixture. My jumbo muffin pan holds 6, so I also made got 5 standard muffins out of it. I would recommend this recipe and I'd use it again."
