    Lovely - nice and light not overly sweet - if you have a sweet tooth you may want to add more sugar but my family liked them as they were. I wish I had made more as they went very quickly  -  31 Mar 2011


    Altered ingredient amounts. I used frozen berries instead of fresh strawberries  -  30 Mar 2011


    I made these today but substituted the strawberries for fresh blackberries. I didn't chop them as they were quite small. Absolutely delightful muffins. Not too sweet.  -  12 Jul 2014
