Lemon and Blueberry Muffins

October 8, 2015Sew White

I love a blueberry in a cake. They work so well and aren’t too heavy to sink when baked especially cakes at this size. These muffins or cupcakes, whatever you want to call them, are so light and the fruit adds a sweet and sharpness which compliments the cakey texture. They are easy to make and would be a lovely thing to make with children as they don’t take too long and can be eaten as soon as they are cool enough to touch once out of the oven.

    These look so perfect, even the blueberries are evenly placed! They would make a nice lunch box treat and I’m sure they would also be popular for a bake sale.

      I would really like to say I spent ages placing them but i didn’t. The luck of the bake this time 🙂
