These are my favorite muffins because they can be made with blueberries instead of raspberries with the same delicious results. Friends often request the recipe.

"I made half the recipe in a standard muffin pan and got seven, not eight like the recipe stated. It's no surprise to me that mine look absolutely nothing like the ones in the photo in the book and on the website. They're very good, moist, dense, and cakelike. They need a little more salt. I used slightly less lemon extract and added 1/2t. vanilla extract. Mine baked in 18 minutes.

This recipe is almost identical to a Better Homes and Gardens one in a cookbook called Jumbo Blueberry Muffins. On their site they're just called Blueberry Muffins."

"Fabulous lemon taste but not overpowering. Perfect for raspberries or blueberries. It's one of my top five muffin recipes."

"Love these muffins! Have made them many times since we have a huge red raspberry patch. Just enough lemon, not overpowering. I've used milk in place of the half and half when I didn't have any...still good."
