Buttermilk Blueberry Muffins #MuffinMonday

Happy Monday all.  As you are reading this, I am in the Caribbean enjoying some sunshine, blue skies and tropical breezes.  I wasn't going to partake in this month's Muffin Monday event but before I left I was trying to clean out my refrigerator and had some buttermilk and a carton of blueberries that weren't going to last until I got home.


I decided that since I needed to use these items, I may as well make muffins....so here I am...well, virtually anyway.  


I found a recipe using these ingredients from Ina Garten, who is one of my favorite chefs, on the Food Network website.  I halved the recipe to make 12 muffins instead of 20.  It is a quick and easy recipe and the muffins were light, moist and delicious.  We had them for breakfast all week prior to leaving for our trip.


I know I say this each and every month but I love having muffins around the house.  They are perfect for a quick breakfast on the go, a wonderful snack and a great dessert.  They take less than an hour to go from mixing ingredients to removing them from the cooling rack to serving dish and the rewards last all week long.  


Make sure you scroll past my recipe to see what the others in the group are sharing with us today. Have a wonderful week!

Buttermilk Blueberry Muffins
adapted from Ina Garten

1 3/4 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
2 1/4 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 c. buttermilk
4 T. butter, melted
1 t. lemon zest
1 egg, beaten
1 c. fresh blueberries

Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.

Whisk together the buttermilk butter, lemon zest and eggs in a small bowl.

Make a well in the dry ingredients.  Pour the buttermilk mixture into the well and mix just until blended.  Fold in the blueberries.  

Divide the batter between 12 muffin tins that have been treated liberally with baking spray.  Bake in a preheated 350* oven for 20-25 minutes, until a skewer inserted removes cleanly.  Print Recipe

  1. I'm so glad you made these for Muffin Monday, Wendy! It would have been a terrible shame to have the blueberries and buttermilk go to waste when they make such beautiful muffins. Hope you are having a fabulous vacation!
