Lemon Blueberry Muffins Recipe
Easy Blueberry Muffins Ingredients
- ⅛ tsp of fine salt
- ½ tsp of pure vanilla extract
- ¾ cup of sugar (and a little extra for sprinkling on top)
- 1 cup of unsalted butter (1 stick)
- 1 tbsp of lemon zest (finely grated)
- 1 cup of whole milk
- 1 tbsp of baking powder
- 1½ cups of fresh blueberries (rinse and dry them)
- 2 large eggs
- 2½ cups of all-purpose flour
- Freshly-grated nutmeg
Blueberry Muffins Directions:
- Heat your oven to 425⁰ Place 12 cupcake liners in a muffin tin.
- Mix the baking powder, sugar, salt, nutmeg, and flour in a bowl. Set aside.
- Melt the butter in a microwave. It should melt in about 30 seconds.
- Mix the butter, eggs, milk, vanilla, and lemon zest in a bowl.
- Make a small hole in the middle of the dry mixture and pour the wet ingredients inside.
- Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon till it is moist but still lumpy. Avoid over-mixing because your muffins will be dense if you do.
- Add the blueberries. Pour the mixture into the muffin tin and divide evenly. Sprinkle sugar on top generously.
- Put the muffin tin in the oven and decrease the temperature to 375⁰
- Bake till the muffins turn golden brown (for about 25 minutes). Rotate the tin halfway through baking. Test one of the muffins with a toothpick. If it comes out clean, they’re done.
- Remove the tin from the oven and place it on a rack to cool.
- Remove muffins and serve.
