Tell me. Why does everyone call them Lemon Blueberry Muffins?! That is, why does lemon come first in the title? Or am I the only one that thinks this? Go and do a google search – you will see that most people use lemon first.

I’m gonna change that. I think there’s way more blueberry in these babes than lemon. The blueberries deserve to be in first place. Therefore, let’s discuss Blueberry Lemon Muffins.

These blueberry studded treats were inspired by two things; my cravings and The Leftovers Club.

You see, not every morning in my life is filled with Nutella French Toast Rollups. But, it should be. However, once in a while we need a change. And that change is OH SO very welcome when it comes in the form of these ridiculously amazing muffins.

A while back I found myself drinking a bottle of wine on a Wednesday Friday night, and when the munchies kicked in, all I wanted was muffins. With blueberries. And lemon!

The following morning I got right down to it. Right after I took a couple of Tylenols.

I whipped up the batter, but I forgot to measure and jot down all that I was putting in the batter. (I know…the wine was still taking care of my thoughts) So, that’s a big oopsy when you have a food blog and when you want to share your leftovers with a fellow food blogger. Obviously the oopsy wasn’t that bad because I got to go back in the kitchen and experiment some more just a few days later.

    Made these muffins this afternoon. They were delicious! However they stuck to the muffin liners. Never happened to me before. I think 375 oven might be too hot. Next time, and there will be a next time, I’ll lower temp to 350,

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      I’m so glad you enjoyed them, Ellen!! I am SO sorry they stuck to the paper liners :-/. That’s never happened to me, either, and I have always baked these particular muffins at 375.

  2. Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

    So true, I’d never considered the order of the terms before but I suppose a little switch up is in order!

  3. kirsten@FarmFreshFeasts

    I love how you used sour cream and brown sugar with your muffins–my favorite way to eat strawberries is with brown sugar and sour cream, and I love using those ingredients in my strawberry muffins. I bet the combo is excellent in blueberry-lemon muffins.
    Cute paper cups, too-I’ve never seen those before.

  4. Ellen

    oh man, there is nothing more cuddly and delightful than a perky little muffin. especially of the BLUEBERRY LEMON variety;)

  5. Tiffany

    Looks great Kate! And I don’t care what you call them, just call them YUM! P.S… I posted coffeecake with the same flavors today! ๐Ÿ˜€ Happy Friday!

  6. Laura Dembowski (@piesandplots)

    these muffins look seriously amazing! They rose perfectly and look like they came from the bakery. Love all that lemon zest!

  7. Helene D'souza

    You are teasing me Kate!! We don’t get blueberries here and I have been thinking of the blue berries nonstop recently. Mhm blueberry and lemon sounds even better!

  8. Kristy

    Blueberry and lemon is my favorite combo! These sound heavenly. So glad you made them twice so you could share the recipe with us! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. A_Boleyn

    Blueberries ARE the star. The lemon is good but really can’t carry the show. They look amazing whatever you call them.

  10. Heather @ Sugar Dish Me

    I’m with you! Blueberry comes before lemon in a muffin! These look great! I need some blueberries in my life. Stat.

  11. Dan from Platter Talk

    Beautiful photos of delicious looking muffins! They look so fresh and lite! We will be trying these very soon.

  12. Valerie

    These blueberry lemon muffins look like something I’d inhale in a matter of minutes! (I always stick the lemon in front of a title because it’s lemon. And I must obey.) ;D

  13. Nancy P.@thebittersideofsweet

    I have been craving muffins! I have all the ingredients for this! Sounds like a plan!

    Beautiful Blueberry Lemon Muffins, Kate! Oh, how I adore blueberry anything–that is, with Michigan blueberries (where I grew up). Just made my killer Blueberry Cobbler this week with a special Buttery Biscuit Crumble Topping to post on Monday. (It is the bom diggity! The topping is kind of a cross between pastry, biscuits and a shortbread sugar cookie.) As for the name…yes, it is a naming convention used with recipes. Instead of plain Blueberry Muffins, they are named Lemon Blueberry Muffins to distinguish the difference. But, I am with you! Glad you started a new trend, girl! xo
