Blueberry muffins are a breakfast staple in most homes. This recipe from "Martha's Entertaining" features two options to finish: make a crumb topping, or sprinkle granulated sugar and freshly grated mace over the batter just before baking.

    Followed this recipe exactly as stated.Was way too dry.And a little bland.Maybe sour cream and or lemon juice would do the trick.

      Recipe called for extra butter for the muffin tins. No problem there but then later get into the recipe and it says to line the muffin tins with paper liners. I hadn't buttered the tens yet so I went ahead and just put the paper Liners in. Then at the end of the recipe it says to cool on a wire rack for a length of time before turning them out of the tins. In some recipes it does matter which way you do it. I'm hoping that it doesn't matter in this one because there are in the oven now with paper liners in the muffin tins. I hope they will come out of the liners without tearing apart the muffins.

    I just made this recipe. I thought it was excellent! The taste of the muffin breading complemented the sweetness of the fresh blueberries perfectly! I will make these again! For those who think it is "bland" and not sweet, it's a muffin....not a cupcake!

    Ok muffins. Slightly bland. Was hoping they would be a little sweeter (definitely needs the sugar on top).

    Just making these, but the video says melt half a stick of butter and the ingredient list says a whole stick?

    Great recipe, I loved the topping! But I used organic dried blueberries from Bella Viva Orchards, instead of fresh because I prefer to get them local and we are out of season at the moment.

    Delicious! I saw the episode on PBS with my 4 year old and she asked if we could make them. Subtle differences from my previous blueberry muffin recipe, but so much better. Very moist, even though they needed extra cooking due to frozen blueberries. We used cinnamon and sugar for the topping, more family friendly than mace. Martha Bakes showcases basic recipes that she has perfected!

    I'm making these right now. Even the batter alone tastes wonderful. I'm using blueberries I picked over the summer and froze.
