Lemon Blueberry Muffins

I had so much fun with Bread Week, that I decided to 
do a series of muffins.  

These delicious muffins are lemon flavored and stuffed with 
blueberries, then topped with a streusel crunch and 
finished off with a dollop of lemon curd.  What a
flavor combination.

Lemon Blueberry Muffin Recipe

2 C. flour
1 T. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt

Whisk together in a medium sized mixing bowl.

2 eggs
1 C. milk or half and half
1 C. superfine sugar (if you don't have that use regular sugar)
6 T. melted butter or vegetable oil
1 tsp. lemon extract
rind of 1 lemon, grated finely

Whisk the eggs lightly then add the rest of the ingredients.
Blend with the dry ingredients.

1 scant C. fresh blueberries

Gently mix in the blueberries.

1/4 C. softened butter
1/4 C. brown sugar
1/4 C. flour

Mix these together until crumbs for into clumps.

Spoon the batter into 12 regular muffin cups or 6 jumbo 
muffin cups.  We always make the jumbo cups so they
are more like the ones you buy at the store.

Top with streusel.  Bake at 400 - 20 minutes for
the regular sized muffins,  25-27 minutes for the jumbo
sized muffins.

Remove from oven and let cool.  Garnish with a dollop
of lemon curd and a fresh blueberry.

The lemon curd topping adds such a punch of flavor!

(I think I will have to drizzle on more lemon curd!)


I will be posting this with

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
