Blueberry Muffins With Lemon Glaze


  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix together 2 eggs and 1 cup granulated sugar using an electric mixer on high speed for 5 minutes.
  2. Add 1 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup oil, 1 tsp. vanilla and 1/4 tsp. salt, set the mixer to low speed and mix just until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together 2 cups flour and 2 tsp. baking powder, then gradually add the flour mixture into the batter and mix using a had whisk at every addition. Be keen not to over-mix so the muffins don’t become dense.
  4. Add 2 tsp. lemon zest and 2 Tbsp. lemon juice and whisk in until just combined.
  5. Using a spatula, fold in the blueberries until just combined.
  6. Divide the batter into muffin tins with liners to the top or until all of the batter is used up. And then bake in a preheated oven at 400˚F for 20-22 minutes or until tops are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Remove muffins from oven and allow to sit for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool to room temperature then drizzle with lemon glaze.

The Lemon Glaze:

  • In a bowl, combine the powdered sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice, and stir until smooth.
  • You can adjust the consistency of the lemon glaze to your preference. To thin the glaze more, add a little lemon juice or water. To thicken it more, add a little more powdered sugar.
