grated lemon zest
Very easy and quick to make! I used white wheat flour and blueberry flavored yogurt instead of sour cream(what I had on hand). Made half the recipe and got a dozen muffins in my pan. Will make again, Thanks!
These were okay but not exceptional - the consistency was less like a muffin and more like a cupcake. The taste was good and we enjoyed the extra blueberries but I probably won't make this recipe again.
Excellent! Another Chef John triumph! I made half a batch and came out with nine muffins. I followed the recipe's ingredients as written. After adding the first half of the flour, I dumped the blueberries into the remaining flour mixture and then added that to the batter by hand, just folding it in. Halfway through I sprinkled on a touch of sprinkling sugar, but next time I'll do that before baking--just to give them a little sparkle on top. Thanks, Chef John!
These are very good. I ended up with 24 muffins instead of only 16 and only needed about 23 minutes or so in my oven. I know that the muffin pan sizes vary so if you end up with more than 16, start checking after 20 minutes to make sure you don't over bake these.
Perfect! I have been trying to duplicate these amazing muffins for over 20 years and have never found the right balance! Thanks Chef John!
These muffins were wonderful! I used the zest of one lemon, but didn't want to waste the rest of the lemon. When the muffins came out of the oven, I mixed up a simple, thin glaze using the lemon juice and some powdered sugar (maybe 3/4 cup?) and drizzled over the warm muffins. This took them over the top!
Nice crust, good color, great flavor, even using 1 tsp. of lemon zest. That was enough for me. These would be beautiful with an egg wash and some sugar sprinkled on the top. Before I added the second half of dry ingredients, I sprinkled some of the mix over the blueberries, to keep the color from spreading.
These muffins are not overly sweet and it truly allows the blueberries to shine in this recipe. I really liked the hint of lemon also. Very nice texture and crumb. Thanks Chef John!
