Donut Muffins
It is very true to it's name. In taste and texture it is like a donut, in the shape of a muffin. I only gave it 4 stars because I didn't make the recipe as written, I would've given 4 1/2 if I could. For one, I only have large muffin tins, which yielded me 6 delicious muffins, though not that large at all... Second, for the cinnamon-sugar topping, as some suggested, I only did the tops. After removing from the oven I lightly spread margarine on the tops of the muffins with a spatula, then lightly sprinkled sugar, then cinnamon on top. Any more than that would've been too much! Also I did cut the nutmeg to 1/2 tsp, was plenty for me, and I wouldn't dare cut it out entirely, that is what made the taste so donuty (sp?) All in all it was different, but altogether a good, interesting recipe. I wish I had the mini muffin tins!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins
I want to rate it 3 1/2 stars. The muffin itself was very good, but I found the topping to be too much and too sweet. I have made this recipe a few times, first following the recipe exactly. I remember enjoying the muffin but I guess it had slipped my mind how sweet the topping was. Second time I made it I used a mix of blueberries and strawberries, and I was very impressed, but I purposely left out the topping that time. After the third time and using blueberries, raspberries and strawberries and making the topping again, I decided that if I ever make this in the future that I will most definitely either cut the topping in half or eliminate it completely. Muffin recipe is a great base for berries though.

Strawberry Muffins
I did not try the recipe as is, I'm sure it would've been ok, but the changes I made based on other reviews make it great! I reduced the flour to 1 1/2 cups, used a generous 1/4 cup of each brown and white sugar, added a splash of vanilla and about 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Lots of flavour and beautiful texture. I'm sure as written flavour might have been a bit bland, and maybe even a bit dry but with the changes made this recipe is a keeper!
