    Lovely tasting, moist muffins. I used apple sauce instead of the pumpkin purée so don't know if that was why I needed to add more flour to get a batter consistency instead of the water like liquid I had. It has lost a couple of stars due to only having enough mixture to fill 8 muffin cases to the top - I guess the recipe owner uses fairy cake cases, not muffin cases - and the muffins stuck to the paper cases, fine for family eating but not for bake stalls or guests.  -  06 Sep 2015


    These are VERY good with a few modifications (the only reason I can't give them 5 stars!). For the sugar, I mixed half brown and half white sugar to equal the 3/4 cup. I also used 1/2 whole wheat flour and half all purpose white flour, added 1/4 chopped walnuts and a few extra fresh blueberries (probably a full cup). My 5 year old daughter LOVED them, as did I. We will be making these again very soon, they are great for breakfast!  -  22 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I followed this recipe to the letter using thawed frozen blueberries and canned pumpkin. I baked only 8 muffins based upon the volume of batter. I could have made a dozen, but I prefer larger muffins. These turned out very well and were quick to make. I think you will be pleased too.  -  20 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
