Lemon and Blueberry Muffins

Yes, those muffins pictured are blueberry, not chocolate. As you can see, there’s a lot of blueberries in these. Combined with the lemon, the blueberry flavor is enhanced even more.

I was very pleased with this recipe, especially considering I originally sought it out so I could use leftover crême fraîche. I’ve made a few lemon muffins and blueberry muffins in the past (which I love) and this was similar to neither of those, and yet that was still a good thing.


  • Flour 2 cups 500 ml
  • White granulated sugar ¾ cup 185 ml
  • Baking soda 1 tsp 5 ml
  • Baking powder 1½ tsp 7.5 ml
  • Salt ¼ tsp 1.25 ml
  • Crême fraîche 1 cup 250 ml
  • Milk 2 tbsp 30 ml
  • Lemon extract 1½ tsp 7.5 ml
  • Oil ¼ cup 65 ml
  • Egg, beaten 1
  • Lemon juice 2 tbsp 30 ml
  • Blueberries 1½ cups 375 ml


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F / 200°C.
  2. Grease your muffin molds.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the crême fraîche, milk, oil, egg and lemon extract.
  5. Add your wet ingredients to the dry and stir until well combined. Don’t over-mix it though, a lumpy batter is good.
  6. Add the lemon juice.
  7. Puree the blueberries and add them to the mix.
  8. Stare at the awesome color your batter currently is (optional 😉 ).
  9. Bake 20-22 minutes.

Makes about 12 muffins. These are best when they’re a little warm. If you want to keep these for more than a week, you’ll need to refrigerate them.
