This recipe comes from the Hollyhock Cookbook. Simple ingredients, easy to make and enjoyable by all. Add a cup of diced pineapple with the blueberries for a more moist, sweet muffin.

Here’s what I did:

Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Lemon Blueberry Muffins

  • 1 1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 2/3 cup Demerara Sugar
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 3 tbsp Lemon or Orange zest
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 2 cup fresh or partially thawed Blueberries
  • 2 cups Yogurt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded Coconut
  1. Grease or line muffin tins.
  2. In large bowl whisk together dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut in butter. Stir in blueberries.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk eggs. Add yogurt and whisk in.
  4. Use a wooden spoon to gently fold the wet into the dry. Don’t overmix! The batter will be a bit lumpy.
  5. Divide the batter into muffin tins. Sprinkle with the coconut. Bake 20-25 minutes until golden and firm to the touch. Allow to cool for a few minutes before lifting them from the tins to cool completely on racks.

    Looks wonderful. Funny, I was just looking for a recipe this aft for blueberry muffins but I couldn’t find anything that really inspired.

    I ended up making a blueberry buckle that is similar in that the batter is very thick and has lemon zest in it. Folded in 2 cups of blueberries and then made a streusel topping. It is in the oven and looking pretty good.

    I will definitely try your muffin recipe though. We have about 10 lb of fresh blueberries plus some in the freezer!

    yum! i have a beat-up recipe card that i labeled “berry season muffins” that is a lot like this. i use blueberries but will often mix up blue and blackberries, sometimes marionberries. i use whole wheat flour, and about the same amount of zest (it’s usually clementine zest as that is what i have that we saved/dried/ground). i was surprised, but i actually really like it with a tsp of cinnamon- i thought i would be making muffins either having citrus, or cinnamon, but the combo of both is nice. the coconut and pineapple sound delightful, will have to try.
