Lemon Sugar Crusted Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry muffins are one of my favorite kinds of sweet breakfast (or anytime foods) so when I saw this recipe over at My Kitchen Cafe, I knew I wanted to try it! Melanie said the muffins were phenomenal so I took her word and went for it!

Due to the outrageous blueberry prices around here lately, I used frozen berries and they turned out delicious. Just make sure NOT to thaw the berries before you use them. These muffins take a little bit of time because there are several components, but trust me, they're worth it. They got rave reviews all around and I look forward to making them again!

I didn't have to change anything except the baking time from the original recipe (mine needed to bake about 22 minutes), so I am just going to link you right to the source:

Enjoy!

Love the idea of blueberry and lemon together. Those look so good! I hear you about the expensive blueberry prices--I try to avoid them also, even though I like them!

Your muffins look fantastic, Colleen! I'm so glad you liked them and they turned out well (and glad you liked them with frozen blueberries since I used those also).

Mmmmmmm blueberry muffins are one of my favorite things, too! And I've got a big bag of frozen blueberries in the freezer to use up ;)

Colleen, these look so good and I hate blueberries, but LOVE lemon. I'm thinking I might sub some pureed raspberries for the blueberries and they would be perfect!
