Recipe Comments & Reviews

This was just super! Made them for my grandchildren in the mini muffin pan, they came out looking like they were made in a bakery! Just perfect. I used dried cranberries instead of the blueberries, but will bake them again with blueberries when mine in the garden are ready. I also used light butter and non fat milk to lighten them up for my weightwatchers program. They tasted delicious would recommend them as a good basic.
I have made these muffins for over three years and I can't find one that is better. I also make these for our bake sales when doing fund raisers.
First of all it is my fault for trying this in the evening when I was tired. I do not have muffin tins so I thought I would make it as a coffee cake. When I saw how much flour goes into the streusel mix I was puzzled and called Land O Lakes. They told me after I combined the streusel mix, then you mix it with the batter. Why isn't cinnamon in the streusel mix? I could barely spread the batter into the 13 X 9 pan. The 1/2 streusel mix is barely enough to cover the coffee cake and I couldn't spread the batter evenly. Every utensil could not be cleaned off easily as the batter stuck to everything like glue. Never again, it ain't worth it~
Beautiful muffins that taste just as good as they look! A big hit with my son and daughter. The aroma is wonderful when they are baking! Yum!
