Lemon Blueberry Muffins

I really should take photography classes
     We love muffins.  I make them at least once a week to have around for a quick breakfast. My daughter loves anything in the shape of a muffin. She won't normally eat meatloaf, but if I make it in a muffin cup she will. I found a recipe for lemon blueberry bread and thought it would make fantastic muffins. I was not disappointed. We had company over the morning we tried these, and everyone loved them. These are very light and refreshing, and the glaze on top adds that something extra that makes them terrific. The best part was, I had everything on hand to make them! I will definitely make these again.

Below the recipe, you'll find links to other muffins we have made. Enjoy.

1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour (I used white whole wheat/removed 1-1/2 Tbl flour)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1Tbl lemon extract
1 1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries or raspberries (I used frozen)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/3 cup powdered sugar (or more, if needed, for thickening)
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Line muffin tins.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat together butter, 1 cup sugar, 3 tablespoons juice and eggs. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; stir into egg mixture alternately with milk. Beat in lemon extract. Toss blueberries with just enough flour to coat. (This helps keep them evenly distributed throughout rather than sinking like a lump to the bottom.) Gently stir blueberries into batter, then pour batter into muffin tins.
  • Bake in preheated oven for about 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  •  Meanwhile, combine 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 1/3 cup powdered sugar in a small bowl. Drizzle over warm muffins, using pastry brush to evening distribute.
