Sunday Morning Blueberry Muffins

The original title of this recipe was, “To Die For Blueberry Muffins”, but something about dying first thing on a Sunday morning doesn’t really sit well on the stomach. So I decided to call them Sunday Morning Blueberry Muffins! Other then that, this recipe rocks! Blueberries. If you aren’t buying berries right now, pause, and go to the store because here in the U.S. it is blueberry season, (translation: it’s buy one get one free), and that means it’s time to make some delicious baked goods. I’ve been waiting patiently for the perfect time to make muffins. Let’s face it, muffins are basically cake for breakfast. Is this a bad thing? No. It’s what I like to call a “sometimes” food. (Yes, that’s mom-speak). And this is a sometimes kind of time!

I added a bit of lemon zest to give this light, fluffy muffin a bit of lift and ease on the sugary taste. I also timed these muffins to be baked for exactly 20 minutes and they were perfectly baked. So enjoy this easy, Spring recipe everyone and tell me what you think! I can’t wait to hear from you. Keep smiling and let’s get cooking! 🙂
