I saw this recipe for Lemon Blueberry Muffins on Georgia’s The Comfort of Cooking blog, this Saturday morning and thought these would be the perfect thing to start off my weekend.
The recipe makes 8 muffins but since I put them in a six cup muffin pan, I just made 6 very large ones instead of eight. I did have a little leftover crumb topping because of it. I just left in the oven for a little longer (until a cake tester came out clean) since they were larger than the recipe called for. I also added some grated lemon zest to the batter to give it that extra lemon flavor. Initially, I was a little leery of the very sticky batter, but don’t worry, they came out beautifully.
I must say, the amount of lemon in these muffins was perfect! The muffins had a hint of lemon which only made the blueberries POP! Wow, I don’t think I’ve enjoyed the taste of blueberries in anything as I did these!
These are super easy to make, and super delicious. You will not be disappointed! Thank you Georgia, for such a wonderful recipe!
