Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract, divided
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup whole milk + 2-3 Tbsp for glaze
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

How to Make Lemon Blueberry Muffins

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. While preheating the oven, line a muffin tin with cupcake liners and prep the batter. 
  • Cream the butter and sugar together in a large bowl using an electric hand mixer.
  • Add the eggs and half of the vanilla extract. Beat the mixture until smooth and homogenous.
  • Add the milk and lemon juice and beat again until it is fully incorporated into the runny mixture.
  • Add the baking powder and flour. Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet mixture until smooth and homogenous.
  • Gently fold in the blueberries until they are evenly distributed throughout the muffin batter.
  • Use a cookie scoop or spoon to fill each of the 12 liners with batter and bake the muffins for 24 minutes.
  • While the muffins are baking, prep the glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar, remaining vanilla, and remaining milk until smooth.
  • Drizzle the glaze on top of the muffins as they come out of the oven, serve, and enjoy!

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Be sure to use fresh blueberries. Frozen blueberries will alter the muffin mix and cause the muffins not to bake properly. 
  • Don’t overmix the batter; you want the batter to be lumpy. If you overmix the batter your muffins will become dense. 
  • If you love lemon and want more lemon flavor, you can add lemon zest to the glaze. You can also add it to the muffin batter if you prefer, but I prefer the amount of flavor you get from just the lemon juice in this recipe.
  • Don’t have blueberries on hand? Try making these with fresh raspberries or strawberries.
