I went to the site you suggested for a better blueberry muffin (cooksillustrated) but you have to become a member to get the recipes.
Thanks, but there are too many free recipe sites out there to be bothered with cooks illustrated.
but this one is better- http://www.cooksillustrated.com/recipes/detail.asp?docid=19363- it takes a cup of blueberry with a teaspoon of sugar in a small pan over medium heat and cooks for about 6 minutes mashing the berries this cools and when the batter is in the muffin pans you swirl a teaspoon of this mixture into each muffin and wow does this ever make the blueberry muffin POP.
I made a few changes as my husband has een told to watch his sugars. I used ff plain yogurt instead of buttermilk and real eggs. I used 1/2 sugar and 1/2 splenda and 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 white flour. I also had to use frozen blueberries as frest were jut too expensive. There are no leftovers. They were that good.
These were some delicious muffins! The batter is a lot smoother than a traditional muffin, yielding a more cake-like final product. I had a overnight guest who said "I'm not normally a muffin guy, but these are great!". I will definitely make again...
