This was originally a blueberry muffin recipe, but since raspberries grow like crazy around here, I tried them instead. They worked great!

"Loved this recipe - hubby liked them as they are light consistency. Only used half cup sugar and 2 cups s r flour. This recipe is a keeper to use with other berries, nice with cinnamon sugar on top and dob of sour cream on the side:-)"

"This is not a recipe for muffins, but rather sounds like one for cupcakes. Muffins are quick breads, so they require a lot more flour and baking powder than this recipe suggests, a lot less sugar and a higher temperature. I followed the recipe to the letter and the result was really mediocre: they were flat and too sweet. You need 2 cups of flour, 4 tsp of baking powder and 1/2 cup of sugar. It also needs to cook at 400 for about 12mn, not 375 and 20mn."
