    These muffins are delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, except substituting a 1/2 tsp of lemon extract for the rind and following a reviewer's suggestion, adding extra blueberries. Delicious w/or w/o the drizzle on top, very moist. Sprayed the muffin tins w/Baker's spray, let them cool in the tins and came out perfectly.

    These were great--not too sweet and very filling for the calories. I made them with fresh raspberries--which was excellent. I didn't have buttermilk, so I used 1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt and 1/2 cup lowfat milk, and it didn't seem to hurt the recipe at all. I plan on freezing the leftovers. Highly recommended.

    Delish! I love corn muffins, but what a nice addition with fresh blueberries and a hint of lemon flavor. I made it just a touch healthier by using only 1/3 cup sugar and substituing 1/2 cup whole wheat flour for 1/2 cup of the white flour. Came out great, and will certainly make again!

    These muffins are pretty average as far as blueberry muffins go. Their suprisingly simple to make though, which is always a plus in my book. I lacked fresh lemon zest though, so I used a teaspoon of pure lemon extract. This could've been the reason,I'm not sure, but there wasn't a very prominent flavor of lemon in the muffins. The cornmeal played out well with the blueberries, really liked the texture. Will definitely make again, maybe this time with a little more lemon juice.

    There muffins are good, but I would not say that they are my favorite muffin recipe. The lemon flavor is noticable, but soft at the same time. I made no changes to the recipe. I would make these again, but probably on a yearly basis.
