This is the time of year when I start to crave lemons. There’s something about the warm weather that makes me want to bake lemony desserts, breads, and muffins. When this happens, this lovely Lemon Blueberry Muffin is always one of the first lemon treats I make.

It’s one of my absolute favorite muffin recipes. This lemony blueberry muffin is easy to make, filled with just the right amount of plump, juicy blueberries, and has the right balance of tartness and sweetness. It’s muffin perfection!

I’ve just returned from Southern California where I spent a week working and exploring the area. While shopping at the local market in Newport Beach, I discovered the biggest, juiciest lemons I’ve seen in a long time.

These California lemons were the size of the palm of my hand and filled with juice. I picked up a few and used them at my apartment during the week. I added them to my Strawberry Lemonade, drizzled lemon juice over salmon and added slices to my drinking water.

Unfortunately, I can’t seem to get plump, juicy lemons like those in the Houston area right now but I love buying and using lemons just the same.

Lemon Blueberry Muffin

Those fat California lemons inspired this delightful Lemon Blueberry Muffin recipe which I’m so excited to share with you today.

I absolutely love single serving muffins and it seems you do too. After reading all of the positive comments I received from the Maple Walnut Muffin I posted in the fall, I couldn’t wait to create another mini muffin recipe for you.

This lemon muffin is so incredibly delicious! It’s got a tender texture and a wonderful buttery flavor with just the right balance of tart and sweet.

If you love blueberries, you’ll be glad to know that you’re likely to find juicy blueberries in every single bite.

What Baking Dish Should I Use For A Single Serving Muffin?

For this Lemon Blueberry Muffin, I use a ramekin that holds 8-ounces of batter. I also use mini loaf pans that also hold about 8-ounces. If you happen to have smaller ramekins, use those and divide the batter between them.

  1. This is a fantastic idea! I often don’t make treats because I don’t want to end up with an entire tray of them, so this allows me to make one muffin for each child and let them enjoy that without ending up eating ten.

  2. I love lemon flavored muffins, cakes, cookies, pies – OK just about anything with lemon and now I can make a muffin whenever I want with your recipe! Thank you, thank you! Of course, my second favorite thing is blueberries so I think I’m in love. This just looks like the perfect recipe for spring.

  3. You state that this is made in an 8 ounce ramekin but if you have smaller ramekins you can divide it in two then bake. How long would you bake them if you use two smaller ramekins (which I have),

    Also you have a Maple Walnut Muffins recipe which is made in an 8 ounce ramekin but says it is two servings. Can that be divided in two ramekins? If so how long would you cook it. I could never just eat half from the larger ramekin.
