I made this recipe with gluten-free flour, and palm coconut sugar. Best muffins ever!

A lovely batch of muffins! Really moist (you have to love sour cream!) I made a streusel topping with brown sugar for the tops, used frozen blueberries and made 11 muffins so they could be a little bigger. The best I've ever made! Thank you :)

These disappear quickly every time I make them. I follow the recipe exactly and the muffins are moist, light, and delicious! The best blueberry muffin I've tried by far.

Rating

Easy to pull together, but my result was a muffin without much crumb to it. The lemon and blueberry flavors were evident and nice.

Really good and simple. I like the fact that there is not very much sugar in the recipe. I have made the recipe as printed several times. I also have used the base recipe to make orange/cranberry muffins. I use 1/4 cup orange juice concentrate, zest from one orange and 1 cup of craisins. I soak the craisins in water for about 30 minutes, then drain before adding them to the batter.

Very nice recipe. Regarding the frozen blueberries, it works well to use them frozen (unthawed). Just give them a quick rinse and then a few stirs into your batter. Frozen blueberries that have been thawed tend to turn the batter blue - which doesn't affect the flavor, but might not be the look you are going for. Frozen blueberries will thaw during baking. Enjoy!

Muffins are really good. Not quite sweet enough for me so I will be upping the sugar when I make them again and I will make them again.

Five stars from a retired chef. Easy and really pulls in the rave reviews. Generously butter the muffin pan and don't overfill.

Hi, Love the muffins.....wonderful recipes bakers. Just a small change (1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (unthawed)). I think it needs to be changed to read thawed. Certainly don't mean to be picky just thought you would want to know.

Absolutely delicious - was wondering if it could be made into a loaf cake?

These muffins are the best recipe yet. They are moist and the hint of lemon gives them a wonderful flavor. Try some 'Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread' on them for an extra treat!
