Start The New Year Off Right....Lemon Blueberry Muffins!

I started the New Year off right.  Last night I passed out on the couch at 8:30!  The kids stayed up until 9:30...Holy Smokes Batman.  They are such party animals.  This morning I made Lemon Blueberry Muffins and they were fab-oo!  I found this recipe at For The Love of Cooking.  I will be trying lots of things from this site. 

Lemon Blueberry Muffins

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup of frozen blueberries, plus a few extra for the top of each muffin
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • Finely grated zest of 2 small lemons
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • Demerara for sprinkling on top of muffins or 2 packets of raw cane sugar for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Combine dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl combine eggs, milk, oil, zest and lemon juice.  Fold into the dry ingredients. Next fold in blueberries.  Scoop into muffin pan.  Sprinkle a couple more blueberries on top of each muffin and then sprinkle with demerara or raw sugar.  Bake for 20 to 23, until tester comes out clean.  Let cool in pan 5 minutes and then cool a little longer on a rack.  Enjoy as they are or slather with butter!
