Reviews forWild Blueberry Muffins
"These were tasty but were not my favorite to make. The batter was thick and difficult to stir. They took much longer than 15 minutes, which is given in the recipe as the prep time."
"I found this receipe several years ago on this site. My family love it and my kids beg each year for me to make it when our blueberries get ripe. I have also substituted with cramberries. This is a family requested receipe every year!"
"I was afraid if I used all the streusel topping that the muffins would be too sweet, so I used maybe half of it. It was just perfect for my taste. I loved that they were so light and fluffy, not too sweet, and we could taste the blueberries as well. Excellent recipe - I'm freezing some to have home made goodies on hand when friends drop in. They go great with milk or coffee!"
"Mine turned out very cakey"
"Very dry mixture I thought maybe too much flour. Fine after they baked and the topping made them better. I think I will stick to my Mother's recipe"
"Texture was a little dry and they were not sweet at all. I prefer my muffins a little sweeter as we somtimes have them as a dessert. Will probably not make again."
"Very good. Made these for a sunday morning breakfast and I have to agree that they are just right when it comes it sweetness. Just make sure you add the streusel topping. That's what really makes it good. :) I made them with fresh blueberries and they were just wonderful."
"Really good muffins. Everyone loved them. Not too sweet, a great breakfast muffin."
"Too bland! I won't be saving this recipe."
"Excellent recipe. Not too sweet. Just enough blueberries. Wonderful texture and crumb. Streusel topping was the perfect topping. Picky husband ate one before they were cool, went back for seconds and even said they were good. (High praise from one who generally says everything is O.K.) I already plan to bake more for visiting company."
