Lemon Blueberry Muffins

In Cooking & Craftingby Jen16 Comments

Last weekend two fun things happened. The first was that my daughter Rebekah was in a production of Shrek Jr. Here she is as the cutest blind mouse ever.

The second fun thing was that on a quick stop into the grocery store I discovered that blueberries were on sale! Blueberries are a family favorite, and so I might have bought quite a few cartons.

With my surplus of blueberries, I was then inspired to create a fun new recipe! You guys know I am also a HUGE fan of anything “lemony or orangey”, so take a look at what I made!

Bursting with fresh lemon and blueberry goodness, these muffins are a great addition to any day!




These are so good. The combined flavor of lemon and blueberry bursting in your mouth is a win in my book. Making them is a snap too. Here’s what you need.

Muffin Ingredients:

  • Streusel topping (see ingredients below)
  • 2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen (I prefer fresh, but frozen would do when they are not on sale)
  • 2 cups + 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened not melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 7 Tbsp. milk
  • 4 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 to 2  Tbsp. loosely-packed lemon zest

Stresuel Topping Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp. melted butter, slightly cooled
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Bursting with fresh lemon and blueberry goodness, these muffins are a great addition to any day!



To Make The Muffins:

  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Line a baking pan with 12 paper liners, grease with cooking spray.
  2. In a large  mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt, set aside.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla, milk, lemon juice, and continue whisking until smooth. Fold in flour mixture with a rubber spatula until just combined. Carefully stir in blueberries.
  4. Prepare the streusel topping according to instructions below.
  5. Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full of batter. Sprinkle each cup of batter with about 1 Tbsp. streusel topping.
  6. Add freshly grated lemon zest to the top of each muffin. The zest will bake in adding an extra and delicious dash of lemon on that first bite!
  7. Bake at 350º for 20 to 25 min, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

To Make Streusel Topping:

  1. Whisk together dry ingredients, adding softened butter and combine until mixture is crumbly.

  1. Yes, please! A good muffin is hard to find. Well, not really, but a great muffin is. These look great. I also had a great muffin at Joffrey’s, which is apparently a company I should have known about!

      A muffin restaurant/store is definitely a NEED TO KNOW kind of place!

      I hope you are having a swell time in Florida! We leave for Disney in a week (insert excited squeal)!

    2. I saw this as a feature on Oh My Heartsie (congrats!) and you just reminded me that I have a batch of blueberries in the freezer AND the lemon tree in our sunroom has 4 lemons ready to be picked! I predict there will be blueberry muffin for dessert at my house tonight. thanks!

        That was a fun surprise, and yes you better make some of these! Blueberry and lemon is one of my favorite combinations. I think you could even freeze the blueberries and make them and they would taste really good, but fresh has a definite vibe around it!

        Thanks for visiting :)

  2. These look delicious. Lemon is my favorite muffin flavor, and you can’t go wrong with blueberries. Pinning this for bake time.

    1. Thank you Donna! I am happy to hear you are a fellow lemon aficionado!

      Have a happy rest of your weekend :)
