Tips on making these muffins

The crumb and texture of these cupcakes are fantastic because they’re adapted from our Very Berry Buttermilk Breakfast Cake. This latest recipe for blueberry lemon muffins are easy and the muffins are super moist and tender. They’re not dry at all and the fresh blueberries that are baked and cooked in the batter make breaking the muffins in half even more special! It’s exciting to see how many blueberries landed in each muffin. If you don’t want to use blueberries, you can certainly use what ever berries you want. Just make sure to not forget the lemon juice and lemon zest because that’s what adds so much wonderful brightness and flavor to these outstanding muffins.

Can you freeze these muffins?

Yes, you can certainly freeze these. They won’t be as fluffy and will be a little more flat when they’re thawed. But the flavors are still great. Blueberry Lemon Buttermilk Muffins for Breakfast or Brunch on a muffin pan
