  • ½ cup butter - at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 large eggs - at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup milk - at room temperature
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries - tossed in 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • sugar - for topping


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a 12 cup standard muffin tin with cupcake liners or 6 cup jumbo muffin tin with cupcake liners. Set aside.
  • Transfer the butter and sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer and beat until light and fluffy, approximately 2 minutes. Mix in the lemon zest.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in the vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the dry mixture to the creamed mixture alternating with the milk - do not overmix.
  • In a separate bowl toss the blueberries in 1-2 teaspoons all-purpose flour. Gently fold blueberries into the muffin batter.
  • Fill muffin liners with the prepared batter. Sprinkle the tops of the muffins with sugar, if desired. Bake at 425 degrees F for 5 minutes before reducing temperature to 375 degrees F and baking for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove muffins from the tin and allow to cool before serving.


  • Blueberries: If using frozen blueberries, do not thaw.
  • For best results, bring the butter, eggs, and milk to room temperature. This allows the batter to mix together easily and evenly.
  • If you prefer a stronger lemon flavor, double the amount of lemon zest.
  • When baking regular-size muffins, reduce overall cooking time by approximately 5 minutes.
  • Nutritional informtion is for 1 jumbo muffin.
