    A little too light a texture for me but the taste was fine.  -  20 Feb 2018


    This was excellent! Sweet and savory with warm, gooey blueberry bursts. I only made a few changes. Subbed brown sugar for white, cut the salt down a bit and added some vanilla. I used home-frozen blueberries and thawed them overnight in the refrigerator. I also baked them as muffins, which the recipe is perfectly suited for. I put them in at 375 for 20 minutes and they came out perfect. Made 14 muffins.  -  18 Jan 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The way I would describe this is a cross between a blueberry muffin and sweet Southern cornbread, with the cornbread flavor dominating. It was very moist, a little crumbly, and the fresh blueberries burst with sweetness. I found it a little salty, so next time, I'll cut it to 1/2 tsp. This is definitely "outside the box," but we enjoyed it.  -  06 Apr 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
