    11 muffins

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Dash salt
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • GLAZE:
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in milk, lemon juice and zest. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture just until moistened. Fold in blueberries.
  • Fill paper-lined regular-size muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in muffin comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
  • In a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, lemon juice, butter and vanilla; drizzle over warm muffins.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled muffins in freezer containers. To use, thaw at room temperature or, if desired, microwave each muffin on high for 20-30 seconds or until heated through.
Editor's Note
If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
