Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Lemon Blueberry Muffins

After a few spring like days here in Portland I have a definite case of Spring Fever.  And with Spring Fever comes a longing for lemons. Lemons and Spring just go together and so do lemons and blueberries – yum!! But a lemon blueberry muffin? Even better!

Today’s muffin is a result of my brief case of Spring Fever (Spring has now left the NW and the gray skies and rains are back)

I played around with this muffin recipe a few times to get the texture just right.  The first attempt was just a little too dense but the second one was just right.  The addition of some oil to the batter makes for a lighter, moister muffin.

And I have to say I think they were just darn pretty so I got a little carried away with my camera and picture taking.

The addition of a little nutmeg and lemon zest into the batter gives the muffin a wonderful flavor and then it is topped off with a lemon glaze. And of course those blueberries don’t hurt either!

Put a little Spring into your day – enjoy a Lemon Blueberry Muffin!
