Cooking Light's Blueberry Cinnamon-Burst Muffins
February 27, 2012
"Awesome blueberry muffins which use either fresh or frozen blueberries. The amount of cinnamon and baking powder are correct. Enjoy! As the muffins are baked at 400 degrees...please check the doneness at the lower end of the time and go from there. Sometimes my oven run hot...and the outside of the muffins are a wee bit dark. Use paper liners instead."
