Easy Lemon Blueberry Muffins
I’m a bit of a muffin maniac. I just can’t help myself when I see muffin in a bakery! It’s like they’re calling out to me, “Eat me! Eeeeeeat me Lizzy!” So I have loved making muffin recipes like my Apple Snickerdoodle Muffins and my classic Pumpkin Nutella Muffins! But sometimes I just need an super, super easy, no fuss recipe! Not that my other recipes are complicated, but when you get into making streusel and glazes it can sometimes feel overwhelming. And let’s face it, you can never go wrong with a lemon blueberry muffin! You’re going to love this recipe for Easy Lemon Blueberry Muffins!
How to make the Best Lemon Blueberry Muffins
So what makes this recipe so easy? You mix your dry ingredients in one bowl, mix your wet ingredients in another, add the wet to the dry, toss your blueberries in a bowl with some flour (to keep them from sinking to the bottom) and fold in! I do it all by hand because you really don’t want to accidentally over mix your muffin batter. I only have 2 dirty bowls, 1 dirty whisk and 1 dirty spatula at the end! Clean up takes about 3 minutes! Want to know another trick to getting beautiful blueberry muffins? I always add a few blueberries on top of my batter after I fill my muffin tins! You’ll want to poke them down into the batter and not just have them sitting on top or else they’ll roll off, but this trick insures that you’ll have some blueberries peeking out on top after they have baked!
In the recipe you’ll see I mention you can add a little sprinkle of sugar and/or cinnamon on top of the batter before it goes in the oven. I love to use coarse sugar on top of my muffins! It gives an added crunch and sparkle on top of each muffin and really makes it feel like a bakery muffin. It’s a quick substitute for a streusel topping and that crunch is unbelievable!
Yum. It’s just so hard to beat a warm blueberry muffin out of the oven! Is it spring yet? I have been craving all things lemon and berry! Enjoy these Easy Lemon Blueberry Muffins!
