Lemon-Blueberry Muffins June 30, 2010

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1/2 cup 2% milk (I used soy so Caitlin could eat it)

2 TBSP lemon juice

2 tsp grated lemon peel

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

dash salt

2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (if you use frozen, do not thaw so they won’t discolor your batter. I did, and they still look good, but that was in the recipe, so thought I would share.)

Glaze:

1 1/2 cups powder sugar

2 TBSP lemon juice

1 tsp butter, melted

1/4 tsp vanilla

In a large bowl, cream butter & sugar until light & fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in milk, lemon juice & peel. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture just until moistened. Fold in blueberries.

Fill paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake at 400 for 25-30 min or until a toothpick inserted in muffin comes out clean. Cool for 5 min before removing from pan to a wire rack.

In a small bowl, combine powder sugar, lemon juice, butter and vanilla; drizzle over warm muffins. (hints: 1. Put a piece of wax paper or a large cutting board under the wire rack when you glaze the muffins. It catches the mess. 2. My glaze was very thick and clumpy. If that happens, add a LITTLE liquid at a time and stir until you get the consistency you want. I added a little more lemon juice and milk. It was very good.)

I topped the muffins after I glazed them with Pampered Chef Sweet Lemon Sprinkles. It just added a little more lemon to them. They were delicious!
