Blueberry muffins

This recipe makes great mini muffins but be careful not to overfill the tins or they will overflow. I'd cut down the topping by about half too.


I LOVE these I used all of the blueberries and there are a LOT of them but still good! The topping was not crumbly for me more caramel like but the flavor is wonderful! I think I'll go eat another!

I would reduce the

I would reduce the blueberries by half! 3 cups is too many. I also used about half of topping and it still covered the tops of the muffins.

I would reduce the

I would reduce the blueberries to 11/2 to 2 cups. It calls for too many blueberries! I didn't use half the topping either.

How do you adapt this recipe using shortening or butter powder?

I am trying to use 100% of my food storage items to come up with a blueberry muffin mix. I know that you can make a mix using shortening but, it is only shelf stable for 6 months. How do I adapt it using shortening powder or butter powder?
