Can you use frozen blueberries?
Saturday 11th of February 2023
I just made these muffins, and they are delicious! I almost skipped the streusel topping. So glad I didn't! I used a Golden Butter cake mix instead of vanilla as that is what I had in the house. I might add lemon juice to make it a bit more lemony.

I would not, as they will be more watery and may result in a different texture of the muffin.
