Reviews for Aunt Betty's Blueberry Muffins
"These muffins are so delicious! I've made a double batch at least 5 times and have frozen blueberries in anticipation of making many more batches. We did find the muffins to be a bit oily, so I use half the oil the recipe calls for and substitute applesauce for the other half of the oil. We find the muffins sweet enough without the cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top so we omit that also. I highly recommend that you give this recipe a try!"
"These muffins are delicious and very easy to put together. I followed the recipe exactly (added orange zest as suggested) and they turned out great! This recipe is a keeper! Thank you for posting it."
"I made them last night. I used orange zest with the fresh orange juice. Although the orange flavor was light, the muffins were very moist and very good. I will make them again."
"These were great! Family loved them! The oatmeal and orange juice adds a nice touch. I did add an extra cup of blueberries since I had so many. Very moist muffins and simple to make. Wonderful breakfast treat - and don't forget the sugar cinnamon topping! I baked them at 375 degrees for 25 minutes and they were perfect. Thanks, Aunt Betty!"
