I once made a lemon blueberry cake…as I recall, it was pretty amazing. I thought I would try a muffin recipe…why? Well…my Hubby keeps buying lemon blueberry muffins at our local grocery store…so basically…in my mind…he was challenging me. As I will say over and over again, I am not much of a baker…but what I do know is that when I bake, I love using cake flour for EVERYTHING! It is a serious game changer. Forget dense, heavy cakes. So…with a little trial and error…see I also have an issue with measuring…I got the recipe just right! I hope you love these lemon blueberry muffins as much as my Hubby does. He claims that he will never be able to eat any other!

Kudos to my Momma for making blueberry muffins for us growing up. I kind of stole her topping, but did add my own little touch! Oh, and I must say that sometimes my inspiration for creating a recipe comes from Amazon. How so, you may ask? I was just scrolling through Amazon and found these parchment muffin cups…how could I not add to cart? The rest is history. Click here to check them out! This recipe makes 6 large muffins.

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine all of the ingredients for the topping, except the blueberries, in a bowl. Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the cake flour, kosher salt and baking powder. In a separate bowl, combine well, the sugar and lemon zest. Whisk in the eggs. Whisk in the lemon juice, sour cream, oil and vanilla.

Slowly, whisk the wet ingredients into the dry until combined. It’s ok to have a few lumps. Try not to overwork the batter. Lightly dust one cup of the blueberries with flour. This will help keep them from falling to the bottom of the muffin during baking. Fold the blueberries into the batter.

Place your muffin cups in a six well muffin tin. Spoon in the batter. You will use it all. Place the remaining half cup of blueberries on top of the batter. Sprinkle on the topping.

Place in oven. Test with toothpick after 20 minutes. Mine took about 25 minutes total. Try not to over bake. As soon as the toothpick comes out clean, and the topping has browned slightly, remove from oven. Allow to cool in pan or remove from pan and place on cooling rack. ENJOY!

LET’S GET SOCIAL!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
