To Die For Blueberry Muffins

This recipe is from allrecipes.com and the person who submitted the recipe named it "To Die For Blueberry Muffins". I on the other hand do NOT think they are to die for. Actually, I originally came across it from a food blog that I LOVE.

I highly recommend that you check out her site. She found the recipe on allrecipes.com and said this muffin recipe is her all time favorite. Her muffins looked better than mine and obviously tasted better. I was disappointed in the results. Back to the drawing board - trying to find the ultimate blueberry muffin recipe.
Sigh.



This photo is kind of deceiving. They almost look "pretty". They weren't.


There was a nice sprinkling of struesel on top. After baking and cutting, I realize that the struesel somehow ended up in the middle. What in the hell??!! The texture was somewhat crumbly - I even sifted the dry ingredients first!

I LOLed at your streusel situation. Would be nice to have some inside AND on top, but how weird is that??
