Muffins don't come any better than these :) If you want to make regular muffins, you can leave out the blueberries and just decrease the sugar, as stated in the recipe. Don't be afraid to use blackberries, raspberries, or strawberries for a change instead of blueberries too... No kiddin' these are GREAT! I love mine with a nice hot cup of cocoa... YUM!

- 1⁄4 cup sugar (if making blueberry muffins use 1/2 c. sugar)
- 3 teaspoons baking powder

Such an easy muffin recipe,and totally delicious! I made the blueberry version,and they totally went down a storm..my children,especially,ADORED them! This recipe was also really quick to put together,making it ideal for busy people.No need for shop-bought muffins again! I'm looking forward to testing out all of the variations...Linda,my family thanks you!!
These were so delicious. I made them with blueberries I froze a few months back. They were moist and definatly moreish! I had 2 with my morning coffee and DH had 3. I will have to try them plain with some butter and raspberry jam. Yum!
We really like these. :-) I did use unsalted butter instead of shortening, and I used two cups of fresh blueberries ... they turned out fabulous, I shall make these again!
