The subtle lemon scent and flavor of Meyer lemons elevate these Meyer Lemon Blueberry Muffins to a different level!
I saw these lovely Meyer Lemons at the store the other day and bought them to make some lemon curd. I saw a recipe on Pinterest for Meyer Lemon Curd and was very intrigued. I love lemon curd, but sometimes it can get a little too tangy for me and to balance out the tanginess there will have to be more sugar added. The good thing about Meyer Lemon is that, it has a little sweet element to it than regular lemons and I can only imagine how that would make for a wonderful lemon curd.
So, I bought them for the lemon curd, but ended up making these Meyer Lemon Blueberry Muffins instead. I love the lemon blueberry combination and was craving for something baked and I decided to make this.
These muffins have a very subtle scent of lemon and the little bites of blueberry inside makes it such a good treat! I made a batch of these and they kinda served as breakfast and snack for the next couple of days. I always love it when there is something readily available when you need something good, something different, yet something substantial for a quick snack, especially for V when he comes back home from daycare. A muffin or two and a glass of milk – he is all set till it is dinner time. Mommy is happy too because this is homemade and I know exactly what all I have put in it! A total win-win!
