Jumbo Lemon Blueberry Muffins Recipe

There is something so comforting about enjoying a warm, straight-out-of-the-oven muffin with a hot cup of coffee or tea or even a cold glass of milk (my kids’ favorite!). We don’t eat them every day, so it definitely feels like a treat when I make them on the weekends or for special occasions.

What makes these muffins so amazing is the combination of fresh blueberries and lemon. They are full of flavor and the zesty lemon crumble on top definitely kicks them up a notch.

The best part is these muffins are super easy to make! The secret is to make sure you are using fresh ingredients. The flavor will be so much better if you use fresh blueberries, lemon, butter, eggs, and milk!

Bake until tops are golden and a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack and serve warm with your favorite beverage.

Can I Use Frozen Blueberries?

You can use frozen blueberries in this recipe but I don’t recommend it. Fresh blueberries have more flavor and they also hold their shape better when you bake them.

Can I Use a Regular Muffin Tin?

The recipe calls for baking the muffins in a jumbo muffin tin, which will give you large bakery-style muffins. If you are feeding a crowd, you can use a 12 cup regular muffin tin to double the recipe. The muffins will be smaller but they will feed more people.

How to Store Lemon Blueberry Muffins

If the muffins aren’t gobbled up right away, store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days or in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
