These tender, easy-to-make muffins are loaded with juicy blueberries, and the crunchy topping has just the right hint of nutmeg flavor. We enjoy them warm with honey butter. —Colleen Belbey Warwick, Rhode Island

"Made these once before and even my picky kids were asking for more! However this time I took a chance and greased the pan instead of using muffin liners, but they fell apart coming out of the pan even after waiting, and trying again, and waiting, and trying again..."

"This is my go to blueberry muffin recipe. The only change I make is I use buttermilk instead of whole milk. The family always raves about them!"

"These were so good. I love the taste of the nutmeg right up front. The recipe said to fill the cups 3/4 full but I had a lot of extra batter. I did not have a second muffin tin available and I was too impatient to wait for these to be done, so I went ahead and used the extra batter to fill them up completely. I expected them to overflow and run together, but instead they puffed up beautifully with big crowns. They looked like perfect big bakery cupcakes"
