Lemon and Blueberry Muffins

October 8, 2015Sew White

Lemon and Blueberry Muffins are a classic recipe and taste delicious. These are a simple bake and one that you will make time and time again.

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.

They look so cute and are just waiting to be pulled off the plate and enjoyed. Hands up who fancies a blueberry muffin.

Easy Blueberry Cupcakes

I would really love to know what the difference between the cupcake and a muffin. To me they are pretty similar and apparently these are definitely muffins. Either way they taste great.

This is an oldie but a goodie recipe and one that I make all the time. I love how the lemon and blueberry flavours compliment each other so well. They are definitely a classic combo. For these muffins I love how the blueberries hold themselves in the mix. Each one a little balloon bursting with flavour. I love it when the muffins are still warm and the blueberry juice is still warm too.

Sometimes I love reheating them in the microwave and serving them with a big dollop of vanilla ice cream. There is absolute joy in something warm and home baked with ice cream.

    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.5 stars
