  • 1 & 1/4 cups (250g)  granulated sugar, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup (188ml) milk
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups blueberries


  1. Preheat oven to 400F and line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners.
  2. In a large bowl; whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl; whisk together the melted butter and 1 cup of sugar. Then whisk in the eggs, milk, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and gently stir using a rubber spatula until just combined. Fold in the blueberries.
  5. Divide the batter into the 12 muffin cups. Generously sprinkle the remaining sugar over the tops.
  6. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.


Leftovers can be placed in an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the fridge for up to 5 days. Warm up the refrigerated muffins in the microwave for 15-30 seconds if desired.

To freeze – Skip the extra sugar on top before baking. Let the muffins cool completely and place them in a freezer-friendly container or ziplock bag. Store in the freezer for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge. Generously sprinkle with sugar on top and reheat in the oven at 350F for 5-10 minutes until warmed up and crisp on top.
