lemon blueberry muffins
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 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.

    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

    • Terri posted on February 19, 2013 at 9:21 am (#

      Good question Vicki. How did you end up making them?

      • Jamielyn posted on February 19, 2013 at 9:57 am (#

        Hi Vicki! I used about 1TB of lemon rind. Hope that helps!

    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!

    • Jamielyn posted on March 8, 2013 at 2:19 pm (#

      Hi Rachel! One batch should make 20-24 if you fill the liners about 2/3 full. HAve a great weekend! :D

    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?

    • Jamielyn posted on March 14, 2013 at 9:04 am (#

      It’s about 1/2 Tablespoon. You can add more to get the perfect consistency. Enjoy! :)

  17. Sarah Walker posted on August 31, 2013 at 3:12 pm (#

    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!

    • Jamielyn posted on September 2, 2013 at 4:47 pm (#

      Thanks for commenting Sarah, I’m glad you liked the muffins! It really is so hard to just eat one! :)

  18. Katie posted on February 18, 2014 at 5:59 pm (#

    Did you use frozen or fresh blueberries?

    • Jamielyn posted on February 19, 2014 at 12:57 pm (#

      Fresh blueberries! :)

  19. Donna C posted on April 14, 2014 at 10:44 pm (#

    Just wondering if the extract is mandatory, I have everything but that?!? Could I just use more lemons??

    • Jamielyn posted on April 21, 2014 at 6:38 pm (#

      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! :)
