Delicious Lemon and Blueberry Muffins

P1020259

I’ve always loved blueberry muffins, ever since I was a little girl! This is a slight twist on an ordinary blueberry muffin, as it has lemon in it. It doesn’t sound very nice, but trust me, this is the best combination I have ever put in my mouth! They are quite easy to make, but they aren’t very quick to make! It probably talks 30-40 mins to prep and bake! These are best eaten when they’re warm, so when they’ve cooled down a bit from coming out the oven.

What you’ll need:

  • A bowl of blueberries.
  • 60 g of unsalted butter.
  • 280 g of plain flour.
  • 1 tbsp of baking powder.
  • A pinch of salt.
  • 200 g of caster sugar.
  • 1 egg.
  • Finally grated zest and juice of 1 lemon.
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract.
  • 250 ml of milk.

The steps:

  1. Pre heat the oven to 220 degrees c (gas 7)
  2. Melt the butter in a pan over a medium-low heat.
  3. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl.
  4. Set 2 tbsp of sugar aside and stir the rest in with the flour.
  5. Make a well in the centre.
  6. In another bowl, beat the egg lightly until just broken down and mixed together.
  7. Add the melted butter, lemon zest, vanilla and milk. Beat the mixture until foamy.
  8. Slowly, pour the egg mixture into the well in the flour.
  9. Stir with a rubber spatula, gradually drawing in the dry ingredients to make a smooth batter.
  10. Gently fold in the blueberries, taking care not to bruise or bash any of the fruits. Don’t over mix, stop when the ingredients are mixed.
  11. Place the muffin cases in the tray, spoon in the batter, filling the cases 3/4 full.
  12. Bake for 15-20 mins, until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  13. Let the muffins cool slightly, then put them on a wire rack.
  14. In a small bowl mix the reserved sugar with the lemon juice until the sugar dissolves.
  15. While the muffins are warm, drizzle the glaze onto them.
