Lemon Blueberry Muffins

I love a good, easy, blueberry muffin. There's nothing more classic, is there? These muffins are so easy - you don't even need any equipment other than a bowl, spatula and muffin tin. I love these for when we have company in town, because they're so quick and easy to whip up, but we enjoy them on any slow weekend morning!

I love how the lemon juice and lemon zest really help to brighten the flavors in these muffins. Classic blueberry muffins are good as is, but lemon and blueberry are such natural compliments, I couldn't resist! You'll also notice that these muffins call for cardamom. If you haven't used cardamom before, it's a relative to cinnamon, but a little bit lighter. I love it with citrus flavors, and it's delicious with the blueberries as well!

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cardamon
1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
1/4 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 lemon juice
zest of one lemon
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cup blueberries


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and grease or line a muffin tin. In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, flour through cardamom. In another bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the sour cream through butter, mixing until fully combined. Add the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Gently stir in the blueberries. Bake 16-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with moist crumbs. Enjoy!
