Lemon-Blueberry Crumb Muffins

Lemon Blueberry Crumb Muffins

My most recent sunny days, unfortunately, have been spent inside working on one after another writing project. But, as I was reminded from a fellow foodie friend recently, the best way to keep sane and inspired is to get outdoors. Breathe the fresh air around you, soak up the warm sun, and admire your surroundings. Just don’t forget your notebook so you can jot down all the new ideas that come flooding in!

Blueberry Muffins

When I went strolling by a bakery recently, lusting after their cases of cute fruit pastries and fresh artisanal breads, I also noticed a few of my favorite muffins on Earth – lemon with fresh blueberries – and the inspiration to bake up these beauties was born.

Lemon Blueberry Crumb Muffins Recipe

Fluffy and moist, these mouthwatering muffins are full of juicy blueberries and bright, summery lemon flavor. A crumb topping dotted with spicy cinnamon and butter makes these morning treats a tasty way to welcome you into the weekend. In fact, they can make any morning – even one spent at your desk – a little sweeter!

Lemon-Blueberry Crumb Muffins

Yield: Makes 8 muffins

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 egg

1/3 cup milk

Juice from half a lemon (about 1/4 cup)

1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

For crumb topping:

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup cold butter, cubed

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners and set aside.

Combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a medium bowl. In another bowl, combine vegetable oil, egg and milk, and mix with a fork. Pour into the flour mixture and mix well. Add lemon juice. Fold in blueberries. Fill muffin cups to the top.

To make crumb topping, mix together sugar, flour, butter and cinnamon. Mix with fork and sprinkle over muffins before baking.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Enjoy!

    I’m like your other person who posted, where are the lemons or lemon flavor in this recipe? Sounds great except for that…

    I love it when berries come into season, they are so delicious in baked goods-I wish they were not seasonal. Muffins by far are my favorite item to make with berries, especially blueberries. These are enticing, great post!

    Georgia…such a classic combination! I love lemon and blueberries together…but have yet to toss them together in a muffin! You know…this is a great snack when you are working and NOT able to take a break to get outside. A perfect burst of sunshine in every bite! They look wonderful! : )

    Georgia, these muffins are so good, I have made them three times in the last four days for different people (all of them loved them). I added lemon rind to the recipe also. Then used the basic muffin recipe (minus blueberries and lemon) and added bananas and walnuts for banana walnut muffins, which were excellent also! I even made it to the Top 9 on Foodbuzz with them! I subscribe to your page so I don’t miss any posts! Thanks for such great recipes!
