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!

These are really delicious muffins. I have been making them about once a week all winter long, and the kids really love them. DH and I do too!

I sat at the kitchen table with my morning cup of coffee and sank my teeth into one of these loaded with butter, and they were the best muffins I have had. I loved the hearty texture and the blueberries were a great addition. Any berries can be substituted and I plan to experiment!

These were excellent! I used fresh blueberries, more than a cup, and 1/2 cup sugar. For shortning used liquid Becel, a butter substitute available here in Denmark, and a little oil. Texture of muffins was like finest cake. I ate 5 of them for breakfast yesterday, our cleaning person ate 2 of them, my non baked goods partner ate 1, and I am eating the last 4 for breakfast as I write this. I am eating with butter on them.

Great with blueberries and just as good with raspberries! We added the extra sugar with both to make them sweet enough and they were so good!

With fresh blueberries in season its the time of year to enjoy some yummy muffins, and these sure are yummy!! I probably used more than a cup of blueberries, but the more the merrier in my book. Great breakfast for the wife and I!

These muffins couldn't be any better. I used the 1/2 c. of sugar and it was just the right amount of sweetness for us using fresh blueberries for added goodness! We had them for breakfast with a cup of hot chocolate and DH and I ate 3 of these delicious babies each!
