Matt’s Lemon Blueberry Muffins

MattBites Lemon Blueberry Muffins

You know what I love most about this time of year? The fact that everyone is busy with the holidays. This leaves me with ample free time to actually spend lazy mornings catching up with a stack of magazines and enough time to get in the kitchen and bake. And when a craving for muffins called, well, I answered. Loaded with plump blueberries and the zing of lemon zest, these muffins took me a few tries before getting them just the way I wanted them.

I think I became so used to mass-produced muffins from coffee chains and cardboard boxes that I truly forgot how great they can be when made at home.  And easy, I might add. This recipe features a whole lotta lemon in the forms of juice, extract and zest, but the secret ingredient is a cup of creme fraiche. They’re light and flavorful, not too dense, just sweet enough and they have their own lemony streusel topping. I love these muffins with a cup of tea.

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tin, sprinkle with topping and bake in preheated oven for 20–25 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
