Delicious! They make a yummy ready-to go breakfast. I just wish they didn't disappear so fast!
Delicious! Love this muffin recipe. I actually made this recipe with mixed berries and another time with raspberries also besides blueberries. They turned out delicious and were gone in minutes! The adults and kids (under 10) both loved them and came back for more!
I like cornmeal, and I like blueberries, but I just didn't like these together.
We enjoyed this muffin, especially with the cornmeal which made it unique and the lemon zest brought out the flavor. The recipe was a little unclear as to how much sugar to add when adding the blueberries. I used fresh blueberries and did not add sugar. Next time I will try adding a little sugar to sweeten the berries if they need it. The muffins taste best served warm.
These muffins are delicious!! The lemon zest really perks up
the blueberries. Great for a quick breakfast.
