Lemon Blueberry Muffins
These Lemon Blueberry Muffins have a lemon sugar glaze. Moist and full of blueberries. These muffins are a great breakfast treat!
LEMON BLUEBERRY MUFFINS
I vowed that I would not buy any Easter candy until the week before Easter because of my lack of self control. Robin Eggs and Cadbury Eggs are my ultimate weakness. As a kid my mom used to buy crates of Cadbury eggs for our Easter baskets.
HOW TO MAKE BLUEBERRY LEMON MUFFINS
A couple of tips to make these Blueberry Lemon Muffins successfully:
- If you aren’t using paper liners make sure you grease the muffin tins well.
- You can use fresh or frozen blueberries. Sometimes fresh blueberries aren’t as sweet as frozen blueberries that are picked in their prime.
- This makes 12 jumbo muffins or about 18 regular sized muffins.

Lemon Blueberry Muffins
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- zest of one lemon
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 cup sugar
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line muffin tin with foil liners (they prevent greasy bottoms) or spray muffin tins with cooking spray. Mix dry ingredients and set aside. With a mixer beat the egg, milk and butter. Add dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not overmix or you will have big cracks in your muffins. Stir in blueberries gently. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tops just start to brown.
- For the Topping: Combine butter and lemon juice for the topping. While the muffins are still warm, dip the tops in the butter and lemon juice, then dip in sugar.
Here are a couple of ideas I was thinking of to go with our ham:
This is an easy recipe to make and it tastes fantastic!
I’m taking these to a Bible study and I’m sure it will be a hit.
Thank you for sharing. I can’t wait to try other recipes of yours.
Do these muffins freeze well? I’m mostly worried about the sugar topping.
yes, they freeze great!
Love these. I did mixed berries with blueberries blackberries and strawberries.
Even in the midst of this crazy season, I stopped by the Easter candy aisle in Target because who can resist Cadbury eggs??? 🙂 These muffins look so tasty!
I might have a secret stash of them!
can i use almond flour instead of regular flour?
It will give it a different texture.
Can you substitute raspberries for the blueberries in this recipe?
This recipe uses 1 egg, right? The instructions say “eggs”, but the ingredient list says “1 egg”.
Sorry. Just a typo. It’s 1 egg like listed in the ingredients.
Had the same problem as Leni, so instead of adding the sugar in with the dry ingredients, I creamed it with the butter then added the egg then alternated adding milk and flour mixture beginning and ending with flour…no lumps, turned out great!
I’d love to try making these lovely muffins! Do you think I could replace the milk with yogurt to create a more moist muffin?
Absolutely! Great idea.
hi, I’ve made these muffins (several times in a row!) and they are amazing! I just picked almost 10 lbs of strawberries and was wondering if you have ever used a fruit other than blueberries. I was going to use the strawberries tomorrow and was hoping you had some experience and could tell me they will be just as amazing. Thanks.
I haven’t tried any other fruit but I’m sure you could!
Hi which kind of sugar did you use? Regular sugar?
Yes. I just used granulated sugar.
I found this recipe on Pinterest this afternoon and was so excited that I had all of the ingredients. These were amazing! I will definitely be making these again!!
I’ll try this right away!
I love your blog. Everything is easy and YUMMY!
Where did I go wrong? Love the taste!! However, I apparently should have sprayed the muffin liners because the muffins stick. Also, the recipe calls for softened butter which I did but when I mixed it w the egg and milk the mixture looked lumpy and not smooth. Should I melt the butter first and let it cool? When I picked up the muffins to dip in butter and lemon mixture there was quite a bit of butter at the bottom of the muffin tin? Help!! Would lovero make this again. Thank you.
Sorry. I should have included to spray your muffin tins with cooking spray. The softened butter with the egg and the milk doesn’t have to be smooth. No need to melt and cool it. Did you use one stick (8 tablespoons of butter)? There should not be butter at the bottom of the tin!! I don’t know what went wrong?
These muffins were wonderful!!!! I prepared the dry ingredients overnight, then I got up and made fresh muffins for my family! They loved it! Thanks for a super easy recipe.
Just made these this morning. Was in the mood for blueberry muffins and didn’t have fresh blueberries. The frozen worked great. My family loved them. I really loved the dipped tops and rolled in sugar! Will make these again.
These muffins look awesome. However my son has many food allergies so I have modified the recipe. I used brown rice flour, added 1tsp of xanthan gum, used coconut milk, used flax eggs ( 1tbs of flax with 3tbs water let sit 5 minutes), and i used earth balance butter. Let me just say they are amazing!
Absolutely delicious…Made minis to serve w/coffee while on vacation. Big hit!!!!!!!
I made this recipe this weekend and it was PHENOMENAL! we gobbled them up while still warm! 🙂
I just wanted to let you know that I featured them on my blog http://mandygirlsfoodie.blogspot.com/2012/04/crazy-cooking-challenge-blueberry.html
Thank you so much for the awesome recipe. They were delicious!
I made a variation of these muffins and featured them on my blog. They were awesome – I love the lemon in them 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration (again!)
love your blog, love your food! I’m putting a link to this recipe in a post on crazydomestic.com on August 19th. Feel free to grab our “I was featured” button!
mmm, I love lemony desserts. Going to have to give this one a whirl.
I was just turned on to your blog by a friend as I am in heaven. As a mom of three “picky eater” boys myself and a deployed spouse, I haven’t had the desire to cook much.
I love that your recipes are real and totally doable. I made the muffins for conference weekend as well as the marshmellow delights. and they were a hit with my sugar loving child as well as the child who doesn’t do sweets.
thanks for your dedication to the blog and inspiring those of us who need a little push into cooking again.
I will be back often.
Just found your blog today while looking for someething to take to an Easter brunch tomorrow. LOVE your blog and will visit it often. Making the blueberry lemon muffons tonight to take tomorrow. I’m sure they’ll be a hit! Happy cooking and thanks for taking the time to put together such an outstanding blog.
I don’t do that with candy but I do it with baking supplies so I understand 🙂
These muffins look yummy!
Pretty muffins! And the recipe suggestions look good!
I spent a lot of time today perusing your blog. What wonderful recipes!!!!!! I will certainly be looking forward to tuning in everyday……
YUMMY! I can’t wait to try the muffins!
I just love your blog! soo yummy! Check out my blog for some sunshine coming your way!
Um of course I remember you Tracy. I was just going through some old photos and came across the trip we took to Newport together. Congrats on being a mommy soon! So are you vegetarian? I’m up to trying anything…
You may not really remember me, but I was friends with Steph Draeger Jensen in college (she and I roomed together our sophomore year). Anyhow, I somehow came across your blogs through hers and was just super interested in all the yummy food.
I thought it might be time to admit my secret interest to reading about all this and your personal blog too. Soon, I will be a stay-at-home mom and I can’t wait to try out some of your great recipes and share some that I can come up with. I just made the best vegetarian tacos…
I love Cadbury eggs! These muffins look YUM! The cheesey potatoes-well soooo good!!
Bring on the cadbury eggs! They are my all-time favorite easter candy!
I had to laugh while picturing you standing in front of all the candy. I love those Robbin Eggs, too. We used to use them as “lipstick” growing up. Why blue lips was fun I don’t remember, but it was. Thanks for the recipes I can’t wait to try them!
