Hey friends! Hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day. My family got together, we got some projects done around the house and I was busy baking!  I’ve been in a baking mood lately… which is NOT so good with summer just around the corner. ;) These lemon blueberry muffins I whipped up Sunday are divine. You must try them! They are totally worth it.

Sunday I filled this cute berry carton with blueberries and I just couldn’t resist taking a picture.  Doesn’t that picture just make you happy? :) After I took the picture I had to make blueberry muffins. It was a must! I took a family favorite recipe and added lemon + a yummy glaze on top. Mmm… glaze…

Lemon blueberry muffins


  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp lemon extract
  • 11/2 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2-1 TB lemon juice
  • 1 TB lemon rind


  1. In a large bowl whisk together milk, vegetable oil, egg, lemon extract and lemon rind. In a separate bowl combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and nutmeg. Mix the dry ingredients into the large bowl and stir until smooth. Fold in sour cream and blueberries.
  2. Preheat oven to 375. Fill cupcake pan with liners (or use a cooking spray) and fill with batter about 2/3 the way full. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove muffins from pan and allow to cool.
  3. Combine powdered sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl and drizzle over muffins.

    I can’t see the recipe anywhere. (And I’m on your actual site – not in a reader) Am I just lame or did something happen??

    I am on the actual blog and when I click on the recipe link it reloads the blog post. Please help! Those muffins look delish. I am pregnant and madly in love with anything lemon flavored.

    Lemon blue berry muffins are so delicious. I love this food because it is so soft to eat because of the sour cream. I really enjoy eating this one. I will try to cook this one and I will follow your recipe. Thanks for sharing this one.

    Oh my they look pretty and yummy!
    I am sharing these ones on my Facebook Page for sure.

    I’ve been thinking about you all day so I decided to stop by… Are you feeling any better? I hope you are!

    Anyways, I am not sure I’ll have a chance to stop by tomorrow to party so let me wish you a great weekend now just in case.

    Guess what I’m baking as I type this? Figured my little ones and I could pack them for my sons first grade picnic tomorrow. Of course, we’ll “test” a few just as soon as the cool from the oven.

    Lemon rind is in the recipe but not in the list of ingredients
    1/2 Lemon ?? what specifically

  9. Rachel

    These muffins look so yummy that my 8-year-old daughter chose to make them for a school project. (They have to make something from scratch, advertise it to the class, and then “sell” it). Could you tell me how many muffins one batch makes? We need to make at least 20. Thanks!

    I made these last night, but I haven’t done the drizzle yet. It says 1/2 cup powdered sugar and then 1/2 lemon juice. 1/2 of what measurement for the lemon juice?

  11. Sarah Walker

    I just made these muffins with my daughter. They are so delicious. I ate two already and I think I need a third one. This recipe is a keeper!

      Hi Donna! Yes, you could just use more lemons! Lemon extract has a stronger flavor but I’m sure your muffins will still turn out just as great! :)
