The Best Blueberry Muffins

These are truly the best blueberry muffins I have ever made. I think that the secret is using honey instead of sugar for the sweetener. My daughter, who hates honey, begs me to make these!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg; stir in the lemon rind and blueberries.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the butter and honey.
  3. Beat in the eggs; whisk in the milk.
  4. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients; pour in the milk mixture.
  5. Stir just until no dry spots remain; do not overmix.
  6. Spoon the batter into greased or paper cup-lined muffin cups, filling three-quarters full.
  7. Bake in a 400 degree F oven 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and firm to the touch.
  8. Let stand 10 minutes in the pan on a wire rack.

Very good, the honey lemon is a great combo and not too sweet. Baked at 350 for 20 minutes. perfect.

Really good! I adjusted my temp to 350 and time to 25 minutes, based on someone else's review. I substituted a powdered-lemon product called True Lemon because I had no lemon zest on hand. They are not overly sweet, and they make a great breakfast food.
