Nothing Says Spring Better Than Lemon And Blueberries

I hit the jackpot when I found a recipe for lemon and blueberry muffins! These delightful muffins start with a lemon cake mix and are a snap to make! You can have them in the oven in minutes; the ingredients are so simple!

There’s no need to get out the mixer because you can whip them up in one bowl! Begin by whisking together three eggs, a half-cup of milk, one-third cup of oil, and a teaspoon of lemon extract for a little extra zing.

Here’s How To Make Lemon And Blueberry Muffins From A Cake Mix

Empty the cake mix into the milk and egg mixture and stir until everything is combined. Do not over-mix! Overmixing can lead to tough muffins, and who wants that? Gently fold in one cup of fresh blueberries you have washed and patted dry.

Divide the batter into twelve muffin tins with cupcake liners in place. I used an ice cream scoop to fill the muffin tins. I have found it works well and makes the process neater. Even though they are old enough to vote, I still love my old NorPro muffin pans! I’m sure the new ones are even better!

The streusel topping is optional on these lemon and blueberry muffins, but it adds such a professional look and a little more flavor to these yummy muffins. Combine one-third cup of flour and one-third cup of brown sugar in a small bowl and use a fork to stir in two tablespoons of melted butter until the mixture resembles crumbs.

Carefully sprinkle about a teaspoon of streusel on each muffin and pop them into a 350-degree oven for about 25 minutes. Watch that the streusel doesn’t get too brown. They are done when a toothpick or cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.

I think these gorgeous lemon and blueberry muffins look and taste like spring! The blueberries burst open as the muffins bake and make tasty fruit pockets! These are so tender and delicious that you won’t even need butter. Come to think of it, why not? Butter makes everything better!

We can’t wait for spring and all the fun recipes that come with the bright shiny new season! Here are some of our favorites! Cool Whip Cookies, Strawberry Pretzel Grab And Go Parfaits, Rhubarb Swirl Dessert, Jelly Roll Cake.
